Watch this space…update

I’ve been working on my Row-by-row quilt for a few days and its fair to say while it’s coming along, it’s taking a toll on my arm and hand muscles so it’s a slow process but hey…it’s getting done in baby steps and I love the quilt! Looking forward to getting more done tomorrow, and the next day and the next……..etc….

Hope all are well but virtual hugs coming to those who need them.

Stay warm

Well into January 2017…

I’ve been busy catching up on little sewing jobs and have now joined a great group of UFO Zappers. A Swap group I was in some time ago meant that one of my UFO’s was a batch of 6 row-by-rows which I never completed as a quilt. The problem was that I hadn’t got around to making my own row to add to the rest….but after Jan McE recently started a UFO ZAPPING 2017 group on FB, I have resurrected the quilt, finished my own row, sashed and ‘bordered’ the quilt top and put it on my frame ready for pinning. It’s now an official ‘Watch this space’ situation which I’m really happy about though I’ll have to see if I can organise myself to alternate between quilting on new work and UFO work to lessen the pile which is still about 5 or 6 high…..I think baby steps is the way to go…

Here’s the progress on my Row-by-row so far –

And here comes Christmas…

It’s been a while since I posted as I’ve been busy with health issues and projects. I have a project awaiting inclusion in the Popular Patchwork magazine so I hope to see that in an issue soon and another project almost complete.

I was lucky to find a Sewing Box tin with Danish cookies in Debenhams (UK) yesterday, the last in the shop. Having seen a photo of this on a Quilters website, I imagined it to be larger than it is but I’m happy with it. It’s spacious enough to hold all of my scissors, snips and pinking shears to keep them together and it’s cute too.

The Sewing Box Tin comes with Danish Cookies and measures 9½ ins width, 5½ins height and 5½ ins depth. The 3D effect is so realistic as you can see.

Happy Christmas and A Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year 2017 to all.
