Friday night sewing results


Last night Cathy and I had so much fun sewing in my new room. We got our pre cuts ready to sew then Cathy wanted to make our first Union Jack block so we did that first. They were such fun to make. We are going to make a quilt each but work on our blocks  together. I'm really looking foreward to it.
 This one is mine, I used my American Jane fabrics.
 This one is Cathy, she is using French General.
 Here she is with her finished block, isn't it gorgeous.
 Here is me holding up mine, This is going to be a beautiful project to work on, the blocks go together quite easy once you get the hang of it. I cut a few strips wrong but got there in the end.
 I did make my pin wheels from my charm packs, I made heaps of half square triangles then just before we decided to pack up for the night I made a few blocks. They look really pretty.
 Today I was up at 6am. I couldn't sleep so I snuck into my sewing room and you know what I liked best.... everything was set up waiting for me. No setting up in the kitchen like I used to do. By 8.30 I had part of this quilt put together. Its strawberry fields fabric by Fig tree. Then I was hungry so it was time for breaky and a shower, a quick tidy up of the house, took the boys for a hair cut then just before lunch I was sewing again.
By 3pm I had this much of the quilt done. Just 2 more borders then its done. How easy was that.
Now I'm tired and its time to cook tea but thats Ok, I have had a great day in my new sewing room.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you the room and all my decorating. I hope you like it all.

Sewing projects are looking great. I agree with Chookyblue, you should've had a crock pot meal. I think Crock pots are the greatest. We are having dinner guests tomorrow and the crock pot will be used - makes it more relaxing.
