OK, so the 'deadlines' are arbitrary, and I don't even care about not being first, but I hate feeling like I am behind.
Daft I know. But as I am commitment-free over the summer, sewing-wise, I am going to make a concerted effort to get up to speed with my #mysmallworldqal and the Amitié Mystery BOM and then get on with finishing my Brit Bee Medallion.
Finishing the borders on that should not take long at all, but as I am going to hand-quilt it, I was kind of hoping that the hot weather would make it a little uncomfortable over the holiday; but I actually have socks on today as I am so cold, but that's got to be completely unseasonal eh!?
I hand-sewed up a few more Amitié blocks over the weekend, and on the bumpiest train ride to London on Saturday I managed to baste a few more of the hexies, so that is slowly moving in the right direction.
Yesterday I prepped a bit of #mysmallworld, and today I managed to complete and join Section 2…
|I heart appliqué now, appliqué is cool.|
I am trying not to over-think it, otherwise it would take forever; some of my fabric positioning is not perfect, but as the quilt grows, I know I won't care, the overall look is coming together and I am excited to keep at it.
The kids on the other hand are starting to go a little stir crazy; we had a few hot weather day-trips all planned, which have been put on hold, so the certain excitement this week will be in the form of haircuts for the girls, and a trip to Sainsbury to pick up some new school uniform. Well I wouldn't want to spoil them! x
