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.

Your quilt is wonderful and colorful.Take care of you!
Good idea to show your patchwork on the bed. It’s much bigger than I expected. Getting there 🙂
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!
Any progress is good progress! Hope this virus is contained soon, so things will get back to normal.
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
Stay safe and well out there working. I am so glad you have something relaxing and meditative to work on when home. I really like the border.
I love your quilt. Stay safe and keep sane by sewing.
I am in awe – just love the quilt. Keep safe at work!
At least you’ve been able to make some progress. Hopefully things will ease up soon, one way or another. Stay safe!
I hope you get some rest soon! Love seeing the quilt top as a whole. You’re getting so close!
It’s great to see your quilt laid out like that — it’s so beautiful! I hope you’ve been able to get some rest over the weekend, and hang in there.
well done Daisy – looking good!
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.
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.
The quilt is coming along beautiful!
