You could all be forgiven for thinking I don’t sew anymore. It’s been a while since I’ve showed you any quilt blocks. I have done some, just not as much as knitting. Knitting is a lot easier to sit down and just do a little. With sewing I feel I need to have a bit more time and be a bit more organised.
But in little snatches of time before I moved I finally finished Block 9 of moonglow. It’s really rather embarassing to think how long they were waiting for the border to be attached. Please ignore the puffy middle. I’m hoping the points will look right once the blocks have been ironed.
And I also started the first of block 10.
I spent a day one weekend not long after I moved sitting and cutting pieces for FWQ. I love having several blocks cut out and envelopes numbered. I’m much more likely to sew when I feel like it if I don’t have to cut out the pieces first. So the other week I spent my evenings after work doing a little sewing. And have three more blocks to show for my troubles.
I’m now quite a way ahead of Nicki, so once I finsh the block that is half done, these will get a little break so she can catch up. We’re going to have a cutting party to get her lots of envelopes of blocks ready to sew together. She agreed that it was the digging out fabric and cutting the pieces that had kept stopping her from sewing on them. After all, the cutting is the boring part. So we’re going to make it fun and try and get a good 50 blocks ready for her to sew. While catching up on goss.
Now this evening moonglow is calling. But when I cut out all the coloured pieces for all the blocks, I didn’t cut out the black background pieces. So it all depends whether I can be bothered cutting them tonight. Or pick up the scarf I started knitting last night.
And since I’m finally showing some sewing. And on a Friday too. I’m linking up to the handmade parade.
Have a good weekend everyone. And happy Friday 13th from me and my very black cat Macros
