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.
In happier news my English Paper Piecing Table Runner now looks like this!
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 🙂
