Ha ha ha…..I’m delirious, I know, but it’s time to go back to work tomorrow, and I’m sure I’d rather stay home and stitch!
Oh well I can dream, can’t I?
We then spent the next day unpacking the van and sorting the washing. The weather hasn’t been kind to loads of winter washing and drying, consequently the woollen wash awaits a sunny day….that is sunny a-l-l day!
After the great unpacking, and grocery grab, I went to my sewing room to get reacquainted with my stash.
From a metre of vinyl coated fabric these zippered pouches and a shopping tote appeared. I have saved the left over for when inspiration strikes.
I was having a ‘red’ day obviously, this bag used up the leftovers from this quilt……so glad I hadn’t put them away yet.
The pattern comes from the the Spring 2010 Quilts & More from (American) Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection. I changed it a little, by ‘boxing’ the bottom to give it a little more room. The quilted 3” squares form an outer pocket all around, and I incorporated my first attempt at self covered buttons…..I’m in love!!!!!
That brought me up to Friday night, then Saturday dawned and I still had washing to do…..so I went back to my sewing room and did some more ‘bonding’ while the machine did it’s thing.
Some four patch blocks using the scraps from this quilt, so glad I hadn’t packed them away either!! Not sure where they are leading me, but I’m just going with the flow right now.
I have a very short attention span, so while working on the four patch blocks, I was also working on these foundation hearts for the Stitching Tote I did this stitchery for.
Never one to settle on one project for too long, I packed up and headed for my TV chair and worked on another set of 1/2” hexies, while watching television cosy in my pj’s, dressing gown and slippers. Just like the Nanny I’m in training to be!!!
So that’s the end of my 2 week holiday, it went too fast!
sob! sob! Sob! SOB! SOB! Get a grip ya big sook! Ahem…..
Thanks for visiting…..sniff… sniff!!!
