It has been a long week at work as I have been covering for the manager and there has been a lot to do, add to that, the absence of a couple of volunteers and I am exhausted. However there has still been time for a little sewing, on three projects no less; the RSC16, Fanfare and another star flower for grandmother’s flower garden. sometimes it is better to relax by ‘doing’ not just ‘sitting’

Looking a bit wonky on the inside of the fanfare block but now it’s time to stitch the centre and cover it up!

I wonder how busy everyone has been over at Kathy’s Quilts? Time to pop over and have a look

      I haven’t made up my mind about the exact design, at the moment I am just making different flowers and when I think I have enough will put them together and see how they look. I am iImprovising as I go along. Normally I work out everything before I start cutting so this project is a bit different for me


  2. Oh yes… relax by stitching 🙂
