I love my days off, especially when there is a decent amount of sewing, an absence of children and a total lack of rain.
Today was one such day.
Last night I put away all tech and rotary cut my Sew Stitchy layer cake and a couple of charm packs. I ended up with all the necessary pieces for my #xplusalong quilt. It took a while, even without squaring up those not 100% true pre-cuts, (what's with that!?), probably not helped by only using our tiny side table pulled up next to the sofa instead of a more practical cutting station! Before bed though, I had 25 little stacks, all ready to be made into 10" blocks.
This morning I thought I better try piecing one block, you know, just for size. One turned to 5, then six, before I headed out to mail my PLPS6 pouch.
Job done, I came home, and armed with tea, toast and old CSIs on TV, I worked my way through a day's worth of blogs and over 200 emails.
With an hour until school pick up, I made another 3 blocks. I feel I am having to work in only photo-friendly numbers!
I love how it is looking already; I am making 5x5 blocks and a 5" border of the darker pink birdy print; it's going to be so girly. I have also been saving the tiny triangle off-cuts to make into 200 1"HSTs; waste not, want not!
There have been other distractions and diversions today, but I am saving those for my Random Thursday post ;)
See you tomorrow xxx
