A teenager and a new project

Today our middle son turned 13, Where do the years go!!! It just seems like yesterday I was taking him to his first day of school. He has had a wonderful day playing with his ipod touch we gave him. I have had a very quiet weekend as I'm feeling poorly with a bad sinus infection, off to have a CT scan tomorrow and hopefully get it sorted.




Yesterday I did find some time to sit at my sewing machine and make half square triangles for a new project I have wanted to do, I had a fat eighth bundle of Moda Chrysalis and really didn't know what to do with so I came up wih this simple idea.


Of course once I had made a few triangles I had to sew them together.







I think they look really nice set out like this, I sewed 5 rows together last night and another 5 today, I think 3 more rows and it will be big enough.


I like it when a pattern or an idea come together really quickly. I feel like I have achieved quite alot.


I hope you found some sewing time today.

Triangles are so versatile - I love the way you have teamed yours with white.

Hope you are on the mend, rest and take care of yourself.

PS: I love my tall, gangly, beautiful teenagers - even in the midst of driving lessons:-)
