So it’s not 45 degrees anymore, it’s a lovely 25 degrees and we are all enjoying it. Let’s hope it hangs around for awhile (though it’s summer and I guess it’s meant to be hot).
Both girls are back at school now, and we are trying hard to get into our new routine. My first baby started high-school this week which means an earlier start all round. She’s very disciplined, she gets up early and is ready to go on time but I really struggle with the whole early morning thing. Already my week seems to be booking up, but as I keep reminding myself, the day will come when they don’t need me to fetch and carry, and I suspect I shall miss that, so I fetch and carry for now, and mostly do it without complaint.
I’ve had some time to sew, mostly hand quilting which seems to be exceptionally slow-going at the moment with very little to show. I have been sewing my star quilt:
I’ve decided I need to add more to the outer edge so that I don’t have the points of a star on the edge of the border – which means I will need to cut more squares.
I’ve also been doing some handpiecing after dinner:
I was in a Millenium swap years ago (duh, Suzie – 18 years ago) and I’ve got lots of these concord prints left over, and this is the way I chose to put them together. I am enjoying it, it’s mindless sewing which is sometimes all I need after a busy day. I’ve enough to make a small lap quilt, hopefully.
Hope you are all well, and enjoying some quilting time!
