and a fair bit of this....washing and painting our house
First I finished off a square-in-square baby for a wee friend of mine. I am teaching this pattern at Patch Halifax right now and it was fun to sew along. Such a versatile block.
I joined my first Instagram Swap this past week. #quietplayswap has us making a paper pieced pattern from Quiet Play for our partners. So this past Saturday at the MMQG Sew In I pieced a Geometric Sewing machine...in twelve delightful inches.
I have also been pulling fabric and cutting for a new project. A sixteen patch as summery as I can make it. Its all cut now and ready for some chain piecing...
And finally. Yes, I will make it stop. I have been working on the latest #travellingquiltscanada to land on my doorstep. Here is a sneak peek since this is secret sewing at its most dangerous! So much fun piecing this block over at Jeanette's house today! I love stitching with a quilty pal.
Well, I am glad to have checked in with you. I mean I miss you people.
Feeling a bit social this week so linking up around here - WiP Wednesday at The Needle & Thread Network and Let's Bee Social over at Sew Fresh Quilts,
and for now, I am off again to suck up the last bits if summer and enjoy some vacation days. But don't be a stranger... On September 16th I will be hosting TGIFF! and just maybe there will be a giveaway... better come back and see.
