Well what can I say , it would appear that I missed out a week and forgot to post on the other SAL that I am participating in.
However, I had a fairly successful week of staying at home making loads of Rose Window Blocks and also made some good progress on the Teacups Cross Stitch. My mind was buzzing with ideas as I had taken delivery of some new stash and I needed to plan out how this new quilt design was going to look. Once that was settled, I could sit back and actually get on with some sewing.
Amazingly I have sewn the side panel on the Seasonal Quilt, so only have to finish the other side and sew and few end pieces on the top section and it will be complete. The weather was very changeable when I was off work, first it was too hot (34 degrees C) – hardly anything was accomplished and then it stormed and cooled down to a comfortable 25 degrees, so I set too …… also part of the stash was the material I found and will use as backing to my Seasonal Quilt. (So happy when I saw this online at Sew Hot – it is called Rainbow Sprinkles Swiss Dots by Andover Fabrics)
First some Rose Window Blocks – I now have 52 completed blocks and loads more pieces cut and sorted. (Only another 44 to make ……….)
Secondly Teacups Cross stitch
Here is where I was……..
And here is where I am now
Well talking of tea -I’m off to make one …. ta rah! for now
