First of all, I hope everyone is healthy and following the government guidelines for this terrible coronavirus bug. My best wishes to anyone suffering at this moment in time. I hope you make a full recovery.
Well I am lucky that in this clamp down on social gatherings I can happily amuse myself with my hobbies. I have been busy with my projects, but to confess I haven’t actually done a single stitch today, so in no particular order:-
Cross stitch – my cups cross stitch is developing slowly but surely.
Here is where I was at the end of February …..
and here is where i am now …..
Patchwork – I have been busy cutting out the parts required for my Old Rose Window Quilt. It takes quite a long time sorting out the various colour ways but here are a few examples of some that I have prepared
And here are a few in various states of completion
And these are finished …..
Each square measures 6.5 inches, and I have calculated that I will need 8 blocks for the width and 12 blocks for the length. (for a quilt measuring 52 inches by 78 inches , minus any borders).
That’s 96 blocks – I have 14 completed blocks and 15 semi finished. Wish me luck!!
That’s all for now.
