I May Have Set A Record For Me

It may never happen again, but today I made my Stitch Tease bee blocks for November, remembered to make a siggie block (a small miracle in itself) and delivered them to the recipient. All today. Go me!

Okay, it may have helped that Ange came down to sit, chat and sew today. And she brought the book with the bee block pattern in it. And the pattern was super easy to do. Ignore all that, and let's just concentrate on the fact that I got them done and into the hands of the recipient well ahead of schedule.


I also finished the second round on the Brit Bee medallion quilt that I had for round two. We just sent off our stars to the next in line for this years bee, and I had Di's lovely star to add borders to. I can't show you the overall effect but a sneaky peek is allowed.


Obviously from the photos you can see it took me a little while to switch my brain on today, buy once I got going I was on a roll. I love a productive day. And I am not done yet. I still have over an hour until I have to pick the girls up from school. Tuesday is after school club day. So I am going to scoot off back to the sewing machine and see what else I can accomplish. Hope your day is going equally as well.

Susan

  2. Ahead of time! You're seriously on the roll...

    I love those houses :) Have the book at home too and it's definately a must do project. I just had another another house quilt going at the time so I was a little house-maxed-out to be honest.

  6. those little houses are lovely. A friend gave me a kit for a house quilt that belonged to her late mother. It is very sensible, ie boring, but I see now I can adapt it and make it fun.
    enjoy your sewing day, I had a housework day, not that it looks any different
