I have to tell you, due to a series of unfortunate events, it has been a trying couple of weeks for me and the family but I am hopeful that things have hit rockbottom and will now improve. I didn't feel much like blogging but I did do some sewing to take my mind off things. I am sorry, I can't really say more but no-one has been seriously hurt so no need to worry.
Since I made such great progress with my Teddy Bear Tea Party
WIP/UFO a couple of weeks ago, I decided to grab another basket from that pile. This is my Chevron Quilt which I blogged about here
After spending another afternoon in the Creation Station, I expanded my Chevron quilt by a number of rows. Fortunately, I left this quilt well prepared and each row was put together in order, labelled and pinned together with a bull clip.
So it was just a case of picking up the next pile, sewing the row together and adding it to the growing quilt.
I love the colours in this quilt, so fresh, clean and cool, so I decided to pop it on my bed to see how it was faring. Five out of 14 rows sewn together now and I am heading into the Creation Station to sew some more.
I was also
lucky to recieve, NOT one, but TWO squishies in the mail this last week. I won a prize during the Grow your Blog event and Kaye from Kitten Stitching
sent me a jam packed squishy envelope
inside there were two pieces of fabric, beads, an emery board and a little book of Calm.....just what I need right now.
I also recieved a surprise from Cheryll at Gone Stitching
for joining in with Friday Night With Friends. My name was randomly chosen from the 40 or more people that I stitched with for the night. Here's what I got from Cheryll. The sweetest stitchery pattern you ever did see, two FNWF coasters and a couple of quilt labels. How lucky am I?
So you see, after spending some time in the Creation Station, my spirits are lifted so I am going to continue as my Little Book of Calm suggests and head off to "Gaze At Something Blue" as it has the ability to instil calm......I think my Chevron quilt counts as something blue!
