This last week has been all about showing my visitors Scotland in the sun – the sun!!! It’s been glorious weather, I may even have revelled in teasing some of my southern neighbours in their cold and rain ;o) Anyway, we trekked around a lot of Glasgow, but I did get some evening sewing in before we left on the grand tour up north, and I’ve taken some hexies and a clamshell purse template with me to play with. There may or may not be Instagram photos to back the last 2 up, it will depend on the signal out in the middle of nowhere! I did contemplate smuggling Little Sod and Cussed on board the camper, but that would have been mean, so I smuggled Trivial Pursuit on board instead. It’s a UK version, does that mean I’ll have an unfair advantage over the Alaskans? ;o)
Finishes This Week:
In Progress This Week:
I’ve been working with this Bake Sale line that I think I’ve hoarded for a couple of years now. There are the start of some bento box sections, and I’m keeping everything crossed that I have enough FQs to make the size I need before chopping up, because, you know, two years old and long gone from the shops…
This is my hexie project – they’re huge hexies, 2 1/2″ per side, but there’s a huge plan for where they have to go, so I hope it works out! I’m using a couple of charm packs of Doe (1 has already been converted last year before I ran out of glue), along with co-ordinating Kona solids and Karen Lewis Textiles co-ordinates that she printed especially to go with Doe:
And this will be my clamshells, a charm pack of Tula’s True Colours with the medium sized template:
To Be Worked On This Week:
- Continuing the hexies
- Generating a few more clamshells
- Recovering from the grand tour
Hope you all have a great and productive week!
The East – West divide in the weather for the last couple of weeks has been very frustrating. We have been shivering under cold, grey skies whilst you have been basking in almost tropical temperatures. Sounds like you are making the most of it too, as we both know Scotland and Sun are not generally two words you will hear in the same sentence 🙂
Sound a perfect holiday – hand sewing, camper, friends AND sunshine!
