Home Again Home Again

So I had the time of my life in Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Dresden, Budapest and Prague!

I can’t say which place I liked best…too hard

Not that sewing did not get done

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.

Now that I am home I am starting to put together the scrappy sprouts quilt

P1020038 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

P1020039I’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

P1020037She 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 🙂
