Today I finally did some sewing. It was a good feeling I must say. I did it in a very relaxed manner. There are no pressing deadlines hanging over my head - yet.
I pieced the back of my Mouthy Stitches tote for my secret partner. It awaits some hand stitching, and some inspiration of what to embroider between the lines, the blue lines that is.
Then I happily pinned, trimmed and basted lozenge shaped English paper pieces. The great EPP going on in the Mouthy Stitches swap spurred me on to get another project going. I particularly liked Annabella's lozenges and she handily linked to Lynne's template for them here. I've managed to make 18 so far. It's a start.
And on top of having fun stitching, I also got good post today. My first Brit Bee block arrived for me from the amazing Judith. The fabulous thing about being in a bee is if you give your fellow members some scope you have the opportunity to receive blocks that you would never be able to make yourself. Really! Just look.
Isn't that star incredible?!!
And I will depart on this happy note, to school runs and dinner making. Never underestimate the joys of the mundane.
