When life is stressful there's nothing quite like sewing. It got to the point last week where I have had to prioritise trying to relax and getting back to sewing has really helped me unwind.

I finished this Bee A Brit Stingy quilt row for Di:

Di has to take some of the credit for this one because she made all those small butterflies. I added some nine patches and made large butterflies on the ends, the shapes of those wings and the row underneath were inspired by Lori Holt's instagram.

Spurred on by this successful machine sewing I decided to start a new English Paper Piecing project. I have created a pattern and hope it'll work out so I can teach it!

I also got some pretty goodies for my planner, I mean Totoro, Hello Kitty and robots are bound to make me more organised, right?!

Of course I had to have some sewing machine sticky notes too :) These are all from The Idea Owl.

Here's to a productive and tension free rest of the week!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. What a fun project, an I love the fabrics for the next one, too. I have never done English paper piecing - it scares me! Best of luck to you.

  2. Love that quilt row, full of summer. Gorgeous colours and I love how it reads as random in its layout - Chris :D

  3. Oh, I can't wait to see what you make with those kitties fabric. I have been hoarding a few pieces, afraid to cut it. Hopefully I will get the courage up after seeing yours.

  4. The row is amazing, it will be just stunning when it is all put together. x

  5. Loving what you've done for Di and intrigued by the EPP. I shouldn't have clicked through to stationery place. Too tempting!

  6. I love your row for Di! Hope you manage a relaxing few days with your new EPP xx

  7. lets see the pincushion. Has it got your name on it? The epp looks intriguing
