BREATHING SPRING AIR

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the last day of the work week. It’s been another glorious day here in my little corner of the northeast of England. The sun has been shining. I’ve listened the bird singing the bees buzzing and Maisie snoring. I did loads of chores and I had a wee session in my sewing room but mostly I took the time to breathe the lovely spring air.

I finally finished all the stitchery work related to my “A” is for Appliqué/Joanna quilt. So, I cleared a small corner of floor in my living room and laid the blocks out …..

I played with the layout until I was happy with the look and started joining the vertical rows of blocks together. Before I join the three rows together I have one more decision to make. I’m hoping to make my decision by Sunday so that I can finish the joining process. I’m planning to add an inner and outer border to frame it all up. I just need to find the right fabric. There’s no rush, it’s not a race. I’ll take my time finding the finishing fabric. I am amazed at how this quilt has progressed. Tomorrow’s another day.

I will be joining a few other like-minded ladies tomorrow for a sewing session. I plan on working on hexagons as I am sure one or two others will do. We will drink coffee, eat cake, discuss inappropriate stuff and generally enjoy our time away from home. The more I go out and about with other ladies the more I realise that I’m just another normal person.

So, I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super weekend doing only things you enjoy doing. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.
