Days away.

I've just spent 4 days away with youngest DD at a science excursion.  We were in a very small country town, so lots of time to sit and sew whilst waiting for her.
I'm very pleased with the amount of sewing achieved, I never could have stitched this much at home.

Some more "lozenges" for my Netherfield border.  I think I'm up to about 19 of these finished, only need to make about 30 more.  I need some more excursion days.

I also did some more stitching on this block.  I'm still enjoying sewing wool onto cotton fabric.  It's so textural, and very easy to blanket stitch.

This month's little quilt was languishing until I found it last night.  I had to pick up eldest DD from a birthday party at midnight, so a few hours to fill in at home.  A little cutting started, hope to finish this today.
A very productive few days.


  1. You are doing well with the hexies..those evenings waiting to do a pick up from a party can feel like forever can't least some cutting would help to fill the time!

  2. Oh yay for you! It's when we're forced to be away from home that we can tackle hand work. But when I'm at home, I'm either tempted by the computer, or must do machine sewing and quilting. So happy for you to be making such good progress.

  3. P.S. Isn't your birthday October 20?
