This week has been very busy for me, but I did manage to snatch some time here and there at odd moments for some sewing.
First up I finished sewing the rainbow 25-patch blocks I made for last year's RSC into a top.
On Thursday I took it down to Sydney to Stitching Hearts for backing and wadding. Robin has taken it to be quilted on her long arm. It will be donated to Ronald MacDonald House when it is done.
Yesterday, being Friday, was Friday Quilter's morning. The hall where we meet was not available to us, so I had the ladies come to my house to sew. With 3 away at the moment and one sick, there ended up only 4 of us. After everyone left, I made up these 4 Twinkler Stars.
I have heaps of blue scraps, but surprisingly few pale blue scraps. I was determined not to cut into the larger pieces of fabric, as this is a scrap challenge. I have also pulled some darker blues as I didn't make many of those earlier this year. I've prepped a bunch more to do as and when I get a chance.
Maybe I will cut some pale blue squares - there won't be many pale blue stars out of this lot.
I am linking up this post to Angela's blog, soscrappy. Do pop on over to see what some of the others have done for the challenge.
I've also done some secret sewing, but I can't show that yet.
This afternoon I had the iron on, and suddenly there was a rattling and a LoT of smoke. I rushed over and pulled it out of the socket, but the smoke went on, and on, and on, pouring out of the iron, so I took it outside and doused it with water. One burned out iron. Bummer! Apart from anything else the house stank.
So I'll be off shopping for a new one this weekend I guess.
Last Sunday my middle grand daughter, Miss12, came over as she had a school uniform which needed shortening. After it was pinned, she asked if she could make a cover for her Bible.
So she shopped my stash and set to making it. I did the figuring and the cutting, she did the rest. Isn't it great?
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
