Eight to go...

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.

Hugs from
Anne Ida

How does she find the time? Of course, her photo is telling, a star in the middle and her attention in four directions (at least). And besides she is a Scorpio. See you on Monday.
Anonymous me? No, just Dad.

Hei, eg prøver meg på ein kommentar på norsk. Eg er så imponert over ting du syr, du er jo reine eksperten! Eg les også Elm Creek-bøkene, og er fasinert av dei. Vil du anbefale å laste ned programmet for å få tak i mønstrene til SBS? Eg er litt usikker på korleis det vil verke inn på maskina mi. Takknemleg for svar!
