Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a very productive day. Mine was a busy day but I can’t honestly say it was all that productive. However, tomorrow is another day and by all accounts it might be the perfect day to stay home and accomplish lots of good stuff.
Let’s start with yesterday shall we. I didn’t post yesterday because I had a rather busy day. I disappeared down the road to Burnopfield where I attend a sewing session for Quilts for Comfort. It’s such a nice sewing group that the time just flies by. The sessions are held in a lovely old building full of character. We have a lovely spacious room. It’s warm and cosy and there’s even indoor plumbing!
We get together once a month, so it’s not too stressful. It gives us a chance to catch up on all the Quilts for Comfort news and hand over any finished quilts. And we work on challenges. The current challenge is making postage stamp quilts which use up lots of scraps. I feel quite welcome and very much appreciated by this group. Thank you for keeping me company ladies. We make quilts one stitch at a time. Here are a few photos of yesterday’s action.
I wasn’t going to post my latest progress just yet because I wanted to wait until all the hexagons were pieced, backed and quilted but I think these three are pretty good so I can’t wait to show you. My work is not by any means perfect but it’s good enough for me. So have little look at these few partially completed blocks …..
I’m really enjoying this challenge. Even the prep work is relaxing. So far I have not struggled and even choosing the fabrics hasn’t been a dilemma. If you’re just tuning in and you’re interested in joining the group, click here for more info. I must stress that this is not my design. As much as I enjoy working on my own designs it’s quite nice to participate in other challenges now and again.
It’s been a pretty busy day in my little world. My Maisie has had a haircut and looks beautiful again. I’ll post a pic when the light is a little better. After a visit to the supermarket my fridge looks a little fuller. And my Sarah is coming home for the weekend. So that makes me very happy. And now I’m going to leave you with a photo of my daffodil trying to grown and flower. It’s a sign of hope to come …..
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some kind of hexagon work. I hope you have super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
