We have just come back from a family break to celebrate both hubbies and kidlets birthdays. We went to Longleat Centre Parcs again and had a great time, spending hours in the pool and outside in the less polluted country air.
There was a lot of this...
I have to admit though, after 7 days away from the sewing machine I was starting to get a bit twitchy! I spent the better half of yesterday re-acquainting myself with my beloved and knocking out a few foundation pieced blocks.
Firstly my very late Kinky Bee Jan block for Trash, who wanted dish/plate inspired blocks.
|Pattern from http://www.reginagrewe.de/04muster/0406hochstapelei_e.html|
I also finished the pattern testing blocks for Kristy using her brilliant new typeface pattern. Each pattern tester got allocated a word to make, which will then be put into a quilt and donated to someone who lost everything in the Tasmanian bush fires. My word was harmony using the lowercase alphabet.
I absolutely love this pattern and will be buying the Upper case version as soon as it is for sale!
After all that paper piecing I need a little break, so today I am attempting to make the triple zip pouch pattern, joining in with the Triple-zipalong hosted by the lovely Debbie. The fabrics are cut and I am already to start
swearing sewing those zippers ;-)
You may want to wish me luck!
