What with all the pre-Christmas performances, lurgies and school holidays, I have not had a scheduled day off, home alone, in ages. Today was so great!
OK, so I had to clean, tidy, change the bedding and dust all those places that have been home to cards and decorations for the last month, but I ploughed through all that, on a mission to get to my sewing machine - I love a good 'carrot'!
First up, the last 6 #scrappytripalong blocks. I got as far as finishing all the unpicking last night, then settled for rubbish on the telly.
So all 36 blocks are now complete...
This is not the final layout. I left them laid out on the lounge floor for most of the day, swapping blocks about now and then; it never really looked any different, I just tried to make sure no touching blocks had the same dominant fabric and called it a day. I have a couple of must dos to get done before I can get this finished.
The first must dos are quilts for Sizzix heading for a show in France in February, I believe. Using specified dies, I got free reign on what to make, and today, quilt one was basted, lightly quilted and has now reached this stage...
Hopefully I am going to have my first finish of the year to show you tomorrow as I am already halfway round. I did ponder just machine finishing the binding, but that's no fun!
I trust you are all feeling the mid-week love too xxx
