Sewing Saturday

Apart from a few cups of tea with Brian, I have spent the whole day sewing - and what bliss it has been.

I pieced, quilted and bound an I-Spy quilt for a friend to auction next week

And I emptied the selvedge edge drawer and made 31 blocks to be trimmed to 5 inch squares

And I embroidered a blanket for a friend's 50th next week

And I joined lots of the scraps from the 2.5 inch strips draw to make one very long strip ready to make a scrappy jelly roll race quilt

I am starting to feel I can again describe myself as a patchworker


  1. Go you! I've just been pebble FMQ-ing and now I've got really bad RSI o.O

  2. What a lovely day u had sounds like total bliss! You got loads done, give yourself a pat on the back. :-)

  3. What a lovely sounding day! Well done you on all you've achieved! x

  4. Isn't it lovely to just have a day like that! You accomplished a lot.

  5. A very relaxing and productive day...the best combination.

  6. Hello Benta. I realise that I'm not the only one who didn't sew in the summer. I also started to put 2.5 inch strips together for a quick quilt, but I know it will end up not being very quick. You are so fast and productive. Well done.

  7. It's so nice to work on some sewing, especially if it's been a while. Looks like you've been busy. Everything is so cute, but I'm really curious to see what you do with those selvedge blocks.
