sewing again

Hi there folks I hope you're all doing fine. After what seems like months I'm back at the sewing machine.... yay, yay and thrice yay!! Kirstin is back to full fitness, the Easter Holidays are done and dusted, the return to 'normal' has begun.

First up this week was a present for my brother's birthday which is on Friday  He requested a slip cover for his Nexus 7 and unusually for me I had it made and posted at the beginning of the week. It should be well on the way to Shetland by now - no picture just now so as not to spoil the surprise.


I have quite a bit of catching up to do on the Block of the Month front so first up this week were the February blocks for the Sisters' Ten BOM.


I really enjoyed doing these, I knew I'd missed sewing but not just how much until I got started again on these. The novelty of the automatic thread cutter on my new-ish machine still hasn't worn off and weirdly I actually loved pinning and pressing these blocks too.

This is a quick post to get me back into the swing of things plus I've got to collect Jamie from Anchor Boys so off I dash, see you soon.

Happy sewing!

Bye for now

Had to google Nexus 7, seriously for a split second thought you'd made a patchwork car cover... lol

Always good to be able to turn requests round quickly, and love the blocks

I laughed when I read Sarah's comment above, as I thought the same initially! :-)
I love the blocks ahnd can't wait to see what else you're been working on....

That's Mad Old Aunty Sarah for you! She is a know. Special.

I'm glad things are settling down for you! Your blocks are so pretty. Isn't it weird how pressing and trimming aren't a chore when you've been away from your machine?

Really like that block, interesting to see what they will look like together.
