SAL – April 19th

Hi everyone

Firstly, welcome to Sherrie, I hope you enjoy our little sewing blogs and I look forward to seeing your progress on your selected projects.

I have managed little sewing these past few weeks due to the fact that I am still at work.  I work in a hardware store supplying the construction industry and it has been absolutely manic.  We have builders who are working at hospitals and doctors surgeries and plumbers doing emergency work and the fire and rescue team keep popping in for essential supplies.

Obviously we are working with minimum staff and therefore, the staff that are still working are covering more than one position in the company.  I have been covering the Goods In area and it is quite manual work, as well as continuing my other work in the office, making me very exhausted, and therefore not inclined to sew of an evening.

I have, however, completed the bottom border being sewn to the main quilt.

Just the side bits to complete and ta dah! it will be finished.  Next the difficult part of pinning together.

That’s me done, now pop along to see the other group member’s projects.

Stay safe everyone.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.

  1. But still, you have made progress. Hoping you get good rest these next few weeks. I felt like that last summer when I took on a cleaning job at the neighborhood cabin rentals. It took me about six weeks to not feel totally drained at the end of the day!


  2. Sounds like you have had a hectic few weeks, I hope you managed to put your feet up for a bit over the weekend. Lovely to see your quilt all stretched out, looks beautiful. Stay safe and well

  3. Getting a border put on is real progress, I think. That is the part of quilting I’m not fond of!
    Sorry you have to work and yes, I’ve heard of many doing home renovations during this time. Take care now.


  4. It is easy to forget that your role in the supply chain is essential too. Thank you for playing your part. No wonder you haven’t had a lot of stitching time! What you have done looks great.
