I had hoped to get some work done on my boy's story quilt but I had hit a slump so I hadn't even looked at it these holidays. After some encouraging emails from Nicki (Mrs sew and sow) to get me motivated to bring this out from exile, I had a huge flash of enthusiasm while DH and no 3 son spent the day out fishing.
I had the house to myself and I could spread out my mess all over the table. Bliss!
I managed to get three blocks done. Sadly I realised that I have three stitcheries to go, not one. This should be quite manageable before the next holidays. So thankyou Nicki for the gentle push!
Here they are..
|Here is the top so far. There are only two blocks left to go!!! I can't believe it. Sorry for the poor photo, the light was not too good.|
While the machine was out I decided this needed a little attention too...
There are only two more months to go before it is finished. I have the current instalment but can't get fired up about it. It can wait patiently... for now. At least the previous months are all in one piece.
Here is my Times gone by so far..
Well that is my very productive Saturday. A perfect closure to the holidays.
The only thing that would really make them perfect is getting the chance to watch Pride and Prejudice before Monday, but I think I am pushing my luck there.
Hope you are having a lovely crafty weekend too!
ps. Got to see the final Harry Potter movie Thursday night. It was everything I had hoped it would be. So sad to have arrived at the end of this saga. I didn't read the book again so that I wouldn't pick up every discrepancy in the movie. It was just wonderful. I have loved the books and the movies (even though they have been disappointing at times) and love to revisit them often.
