It's four more sleeps 'till school returns.
I've had no time to sew, though it's probably not a bad thing because I've a head full of ideas and I know I'll just start something new if I can get into my sewing room. These forced separations from my sewing space seem to force me to focus on what needs finishing. In this case, I'm a bee's whisker from finishing the Thirties Print log cabin I have on the go. I have no excuses, just lack of time and perhaps, if I'm honest, lack of focus.
It's been a big school holidays. I am sure it will be a big school year too. Is it just me or is it getting busier? Or is it just because my kids are older? Or am I officially turning into an old fart who says constantly 'Back in my day......'
So for now, I have a finish for you - I don't know if this is something I have shown you before. I'm much more focussed on my documentation of these flimsies, and so I generally show you as I finish them. But the earlier ones I missed, for some reason.
I really love this one as a scrap quilt. It's purely five inch squares sewn into a disappearing nine patch, and then sashed. I think it's a really good quilt design for a donated quilts - I don't like to give quilts away that look like they took me five minutes. And I don't like to spend years on donated quilts either. So to find one that a/ uses up scrap fabrics and b/ doesn't look rushed and c/ actually WAS a very quick quilt to make - winner winner!
So that's it for tonight. I am currently in a quiet house listening to lovely, soft rain - a very nice thing to hear in the height of summer. I want to make the most of it! Goodnight!
