busy day!!

The craft fairy was watching over me today and granted me a day to myself. Everyone occupied themselves with their own agendas leaving me to my own devices. Generous don't you think?
I thought I should make a start on the borders for my Sweet Nostalgia blocks. They are all cut and pinned. I managed to do these four. I am glad I went with the 30's prints.


I will try to finish the others during the week.
While I was making a mess cutting and sorting, I thought I would get a block for the Boys story quilt started. I finished this little stitchery during the week and thought it went in the block with the matching appliqued block but it doesn't, it fits into the adjoining  block 2.
 

I need to do another stitchery before I can put block two together but I had a go at block three anyway. You know when you just get a little enthusiastic and want to have a go?

Thankyou crafty fairy!

Hope you have had a productive weekend too!
cheers
Marina

Your stitchery blocks are lovely - the 1930 fabrics fit very well.

Thanks for nice words about the Log Cabin quilt. I'll have some "me time" today too, so i can continue.

Your Nostalgia blocks are coming together nicely this is going to be a gorgeous quilt.

The boys story is super cute in those colours.

Hope you have more visits from the craft fairy during your break.

What a great way to start your holidays a day all to yourself. The nostalgia blocks look really, really good with the 30's prints.They work really well together. Have fun with the new project.
