It has been nearly a week since my last post, and it has been a week mostly spent at work. I’ve been preparing for a lecture I’m giving at a conference in Leeds in July, this has taken more time than anticipated, and there has not been much time for sewing or for blogging. But last night and this evening I have taken some time off to work a bit on my SBS. Let me present: E4 – Indiana Rose; L2 – Mother’s favourite; M7 - New Mexico; M4 – Jack in the Box; M8 – Dogtooth Violet; and M2 – Wild Goose Chase:
I resorted to raw edge appliqué on the E4 – I think it turned out ok. The other patterns are originally foundation paper piecing – not one scrap of paper touched my fabric :o) Now there is only eight more blocks to do, and the SBS top can be sewn together – yey!!! Some of the blocks are suitable for hand piecing, so if I have time I’ll bring them as a carry on project over the summer.
Which brings me to my last announcement tonight: this will (probably) be my last post for a while seeing as I’m leaving for the summer house on Monday and from there to England on Thursday. So I wish you a great couple of weeks and welcome back for news from me in about two weeks time.
