Good sewing day...



This is the weather outside at the moment....a view from the front door and no better from the back door!! A long weekend to boot! Oh well, it will mean lots of sewing! That is not an outhouse either!! That is our hen house. My hubby built it...he is a city boy and obviously thought the hens were the size of ostriches!!

A momentous year...I have finally finished my Masters in Nursing. I hit the submit button on my final assignment a couple of weeks ago and, boy, was that a good feeling. Hence, why not a lot of action has been happening on the blog or sewing front.

I have been keeping up with my bee commitments though, and this was the latest round of blocks using Nydia's tutorial. I haven't done a lot of paper piecing before, but by the end of it, I was whizzing through them. Love this block. I know I shouldn't have favs, but I love Staci's block which is the black, white and chartreuse one. I have to make a black and white quilt now.


The other bee block I have completed is one for Cille in the Modern Minx bee. We are making blocks from the Modern Blocks book. Cille wanted greens, yellows, oranges, aqua and reds.


Ok, I'm off to make use of this very wet Sunday....

  4. Bravo on completing that final assignment! I love the blocks you are showing us today. Your colours are always so bright and cheerful. Your coop is a bit tall true, but can I tell you what my Grandma did with her chicken coop when she stopped having chickens? She turned it into a bunk house for the grandkidsm, maybe your DH was just thinking about the future! Enjoy your day of sewing!

  6. Congrats on the Masters, well done you! After a gorgeous weekend, our Labour Monday was wet too. I finished up a little bit of sewing - a raw edge circle quilt top which we've been working on at school - but mostly spent the day reading and sleeping. I love the citrus colours in that last block.
