There’s been some ups and downs this week – on the upside I’m feeling better, not 100% yet, but close, on the downside, the bathroom that I completely cleared out over the weekend and bought new bits and pieces for (like medicine cabinet, shelves etc) has not been replaced as expected this week, and I have a living room and hall full of bits. The fitter turned up with the various bits and pieces on Monday with an apology that his last job overran, so my week off to supervise them is now just a week off! Still, it’s given me time to do a few adminny things behind the scenes, as well as some sewing.
Finishes This Week:
In Progress This Week:
A few weeks ago I bought the ‘January Block’ pattern from @ladyharvatine on IG with the intention of using it for my #ukigminiswap, and this weekend I got the 4 blocks sewn up (please excuse crappy IG pic, no co-ordination of light + camera this week) I used some of my bundle of Paint, and I now have a plan on what to do with the rest of it, when I have a moment!
I’ve also turned this pile into a quilt top for an FQS hop next month. I want to get it quilted and bound this week, as it’s a baby quilt for a friend who just finished up for her maternity leave, so the little bugger must be imminent!
To Be Worked On This Week:
Finish the baby quilt
Write up the Rainy Days & Monday’s pattern for testing
Get my admin all done!
Chain the fitters to my bathroom…
Linking up with Lee and the gang:
Very pretty! Love the scrappy look!
Oh no, are you going to have to take extra time off to do the bathroom supervising, now? But at least your mini looks really cool! 🙂
This is a really fantastic block… I'm a big Carrie Bloomston fan, so in my mind, you can never go wrong when using her fabrics. Greetings from Germany!
Love the sewing….and hope that bathroom gets done eventually without too much hassle. Juliex
Lovely looking block! Hope all of your renovations go smoothly!
Sorry you've been unwell again. But, I do like what you've done with the January block.
I love that January block. Our 'new' shower room is not finished yet either but as it's being done by us we have no one to blame! The grouting will commence tomorrow…
LUV that January block!!!!
Too funny…just today I bought two prints from the Paint collection! I was thinking bags!:)
Oh, love this quilt and the fabrics you chose are superb! Really cool.
I love the way this is turning out!
Chaining a fitter to your bathroom? Hang on, I'll be right there. And I'll bring the baby oil.
I really love your first photo – that would be so spectacular done up big too. Nice curves, love 😉
Good luck with the baby quilt, I love those blues very much and they'll look awesome with some Carolyn Friedlander (every thing her fabric touches turns to gold I think). Happy sewing and look after yourself. And the fitter. Ahem.
Love that January block – looks devilish tricksy! Is it as hard as it looks? I might be tempted…
Love your quilt. It looks like the Olympic rings. I'm glad you are getting better.
Come to Australia for some sun.
I love that block!
I'd be so happy if I was your swap partner 🙂
Bummer RE the bathroom. Isn't that how it always goes?
Love love love your Jan Block. The quilt is going to be amazing!
Glad to hear you're better! I love how the mini is shaping up and now feel the need to acquire the stripes and newsprints from Paint 😛
Love the circles! Xx
Love those January blocks! Need to get brave and give them a try!
