This week I planned to get into the sewing room each day. Today I spent plenty of time un-sewing. Gosh putting one half of a block the wrong way up was causing a huge problem. Of course it all fell into place once I had worked out what I had done wrong. The next block came together in a matter of minutes. I am working on a quilt which has 16 blocks in the centre.
The size of the completed blocks is 9.5 inches. I have made ten so far. Hopefully tomorrow will be a un-sewing free day. The blue fabric in the block above is some Indigo fabric that came from the Stone Store in Kerikeri in New Zealand. It is such a beautiful fabric, I love the smell of it when you iron it. This type of fabric will age beautifully.
Yesterday I received some lovely mail all the way from America.
It was the most useful light a Beam N Read. I was the lucky winner from Jocelyn's blog "Happy Cottage Quilter." Thanks so much Jocelyn. If you haven't read her blog make sure you do. Thanks also to Beam N Read. I found another use for this light. It would make a great light for a home made light box. Using LED lights it doesn't heat up. The Beam N Read is so light and only takes 4 AA batteries to run it.
I hope you have a wonderful Friday doing something you love. I will be in my sewing room.
