Helllooooo! I have been a bad blogger. As is the case for many, free time is always limited. When I'm not working I have to decide, do I blog or do I create? Lately, creating has been winning that battle. My guilty pleasure is turning on Turner Classic Movies on Saturday night and sewing for 5 or 6 hours. Pure bliss.
Here's a snippet of what I've been working on.
This is destined to be part of a table runner. It's a pattern by Glenna Hailey from her book Sugar Sack Quilts. I seriously want to make every quilt in her book. This is my first attempt at applique and I am happy with the results so far. I used Heat and Bond Lite to secure the flowers to the background and I will now hand stitch them in place.
I am also hooked on making these star blocks. I am using this pattern by Allison and Cluck, Cluck, Sew. My aim is for 36 blocks that will finish off at roughly 10 inches. It will make a nice sized throw. I am enjoying stitching these up while watching some good TV such as Downton Abbey.
Speaking of Downton Abbey, is everyone as thrilled as I am that season 3 is upon us?! I DVR the episodes and then watch them 2 or 3 times. Hi, my name is Laura and I am a Downton Abbey addict. ;)
I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year and a fabulous week!
