Posts Tagged ‘Prepping Blocks’

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a very enjoyable weekend. It’s been lovely in my little corner of the northeast of England. Except for the latest terror attack in London I could say that it’s been a perfect weekend. I managed to reach the perfect balance between work and leisure. I have been pretty busy with spring garden stuff of late. Just a couple more sessions outside and it will be exactly the way I want it.

The weather has been perfect for barbequing recently. So, I have decided to indulge myself this evening. It never ceases to amaze me just how much I can do by myself. Nowadays I manage to put a meal together using the barbeque contraption with great success. Somehow, I manage to cook the meat without burning it to cinders. Who says barbequing is a man’s job!

As you all know, I have been concentrating on making progress on my UFOs this year. Well I must confess that I needed a little change this weekend. So I dragged out these few fabrics from my stash …..

Guess what I’m working on?????? Christmas!!!!! After drawing my blocks, I made a start. Here’s a little peak at the first two.

I rarely use white as a background fabric. I find that the contrast is too stark but this time I decided to go with white. You probably can’t see the print on my background but it looks rather festive making it perfect for a Christmas project. I have prepped six blocks now. I will be securing the patches to the background fabric over the next few days. I hope to bring you a progress report next weekend.

So, all in all it’s been a rather productive weekend. I made a couple of trips to the tip. I baked some scones this morning and they were lovely. I prepped Christmas blocks. And I must say that I’m rather excited about this new project. Something Christmas themed will make a nice change from the regular stuff I have been working on.

So, for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious quilt maker will hand appliqueing patches in place. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until you read me again,

Happy stitching ♥♥
