Things have been going very slowly on the stitching front around here lately.
I've been suffering through the renovation of my kitchen.  No, suffering doesn't even begin to describe it!  LOL.

Well, I have no sink or cupboards, but at least I have my stove back.  Two weeks with nothing but a little 2 burner camping stove or 1 week with only the microwave wasn't pretty. 
Like the very tasteful newspaper curtains?  DH has just finished painting the walls and woodwork,  we  also replaced the floor with new boards and that's all been resurfaced.  Thank  goodness all the smelly jobs are done.  Best news- new kitchen arrives in 2 weeks.  You'll hear me yelling with excitement  I'm sure. 
I always knew I liked to cook, but it never hit me how hard it is to go without baking a chicken for tea, or cooking biscuits and cakes for the kids.
So, whilst going through those trials and tribulations, not much sewing has been happening.  I couldn't get to my sewing room for quite a while, then I just didn't feel like sewing in the mess.
But it's all happening again now.
Found a couple of Joseph's Coat blocks that I'd prepped some time ago, so they've been being stitched over the last few days. 

I've also been slowly sewing rows together for my Roll Roll Cotton Boll  mystery quilt.  I love blocks on point, but I've decided I don't like sewing the diagonal rows together.  They're so looooong.  Need to take a pic when it's all together.  There's a great pieced border to go around  that I've already pieced, so it'll all come together quickly.  At least that's what I keep telling myself!

  1. Your kitchen renovation will be great! I understand how difficult it is now, but before you know it you'll be writing a blog post about how "worth the effort and disruption" its been.

    You're such a good girl to work on your Joseph's Coat blocks. I think mine will never again see the light of day. And we're both at the same stage of RRCB. But please, you do go first. Yes, be my guest.
