Several of you suggested l take all the projects with me,
and that's what l did. Across the weekend, l managed to do a little on each.
Just being able to put the blocks on the design wall, and see if the fabrics l had chosen,
and the settings l was wanting to do, was a wonderful achievement in itself.
l don't have a design wall at home at the moment. l use the floor.
And its not the same!
But that's all going to change this year, as l make some long
over due changes to my sewing studio.
So here is a few progress shots for you to enjoy.
l'm not showing you everything!
l want to wait and finish a few before they make their appearance.
Who doesn't love a nine patch quilt?
These are from an online swap, and l am so happy to see this
quilt well on its way to finished. The diagonal rows are complete.
Now to join all those rows together!
Made a great start on this one too.
It was lovely seeing this on the design wall.
Yes, l know there is one block not quite right!
These are swap blocks, and that's how it came.
And no, l'm not fixing it!
These blocks have been around a while too.
l felt like l achieved so much this weekend.
All quilts have been on the wall.
All have had their fabrics cut.
All have had some stitching done.
All WILL get finished!!
Of course, no weekend would be complete without food photos!
This was our dinner Thursday evening.
A delicious chicken and chorizo paella.
With wine of course!
Friday nights dinner.
Scones, both savory and sweet,
Home made baked beans. Thanks Chris!
Another new favorite recipe.
My friend had a birthday over the weekend,
and as she was not able to be there with us,
we made her a birthday sign, took a photo and sent it to her.
Happy birthday Debbie!
We just used left over fabric scraps and our design wall.
Be back soon with some photos of what everyone else was sewing.
Thanks for visiting.
