time to sew


I love when that happens! This week hubbie is off work so I am taking advantage at every opportunity to get some sewing done.

The only finish are these bee blocks, I loved making these ones and they are brilliant designs!

First up, these Scrappy Sprouts for Di (apologies for the slightly yellow tint on these pictures):



Next these ones for Nicky, I can see these being totally addictive! Her tutorial is super easy to follow too:


These are already on the way but I realise I forgot to do siggy blocks, so ladies I will get them to you asap, sorry!

I also managed to chain my way through all these DP blocks, now just need to press them and arrange them into rows. All this yummy fabric is from Fluffy Sheep Quilting, I'm making a quilt for Cindy.


Not all perfect though, I did do this a couple of times:

  1. Ah, I hate it when I do that. It happened when I was chain piecing on one of the Swoon blocks so I had a whole string of them before I realized what I was doing. Duh.

    Your other blocks are really great! Glad you are making so much progress. You still amaze me.
