I can't do that.....

I am an artiste!! You would have me waste my talents on this menial task? How dare you, I say. Perhaps if your legs would grow a little more, well quite a lot more, I would not be forced to undertake this labour. I can feel it sapping the creativity from my life force...
Hemming Jeans....Yuuuukkkko. They are all cut, pinned ready to sew. Hope my machine will still speak to me later...
I felt a little guilty cause dh has been begging me to take up his jeans for yonks and he has had to just cuff them inside to wear them. When he bought two new pairs I thought I should do the lot. I hate taking up trousers!

I did get my Sweet Nostalgia block finished last night and yesterday afternoon I cut more hexagon shapes for the cream hexagons for my borders.
So I did get some 'me' craftiness happening too.
Taaa daa....
Totally up to date with this BOM, now to do some Boy's story blocks while I am waiting to start my Raggedy Anne and Andy.
There are some quick people who have finished the first block and have posted a pic on Kaaren's blog. They are so gorgeous. I love seeing how others use different colourways. Fantastic!

cheers

That is really beautiful stitching, I love it!...I must admit, I am terrified of taking up hems (at least grown up hems), I always take them to the local lady in the dress shop!

Your block looks gorgeous. I love that dress on the girl.

Must go check the Raggedy blocks.

Glad to hear that you balanced the crafty-ness with the fixing-up.
Lovely stitching!

Looks like you have your must do's before you can do you want to do's. Your block looks great, love the beach ball.

Oh, I feel the same way about working on other things besides quilt stuff.
Your block turned out so cute. I am way behind.
