So I had the time of my life in Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Dresden, Budapest and Prague!
Ali at a “love lock” bridge in Paris
I can’t say which place I liked best…too hard
Ali (me) in front of Parliament in Budapest
Not that sewing did not get done
EPP being done on a train
the picture above is from a train, not a plane, those wonderful stork scissors got taken from me by TSA in Prague…seriously…too dangerous. I had actually planned on storing them in my checked bag but forgot. Bye Bye Stork Scissors.
In happier news my English Paper Piecing Table Runner now looks like this!
Here’s a close-up.
Now that I am home I am starting to put together the scrappy sprouts quilt
I had my husband
help me put up my “design wall”, which is a big piece of flannel attached to the bookcase in the living room, but it works…as long as I pin everything to it. I am liking the rainbow-ishness of it. I am now paper piecing scrappy flowers for the top of each stalk (more on that to come).
Lastly I wanted to do something with my economy blocks so I thought I’d make a pouch out of two of them
I’ve gotten this far. It took a while to make the piping…yeah, that’s my excuse…It will be quite a bit bigger than I had expected (pre-planning, sheesh I say!) so I bought a big fat white zipper for the top, hopefully that will help the scale. We’ll see.
Lastly, I made my bee block for guild
She chose the colors and basically told us to go to town on any modern block we wanted. I, having a piecing problem, chose this block, which I love love love. I never thought I’d like this color combination but I really do…hmmmm.
With any luck I’ll get some more done over the long weekend. I hope all is well with you :-)
