Chooseday......


Didn't meet up with the other girls to sew this week but I still decided to Choose my own projects instead of working .....  Tuesdays has become my 'me' day!!! haha

Yesterday I spent the day doing some machine sewing of scrap projects....  this is when my table was still tidy!!!


Making some more blocks for My Small World .... I am always amazed how long it takes when you are sorting through tubs of scraps, ironing, cutting little pieces....  much easier with new fabric!!!

The large block is 4 1/2" (every life has a tiger in it doesn't it????) and the small ones are 2 1/2" 


The churn dashes are 3 1/2".... I think they are very sweet....


... and these little bordered squares are 2 1/2" .....


Took most of the morning to do these....


Had the last of the focaccia with some yummy home made soup for lunch ....


After lunch I took out my tub of Safari scraps and sewed strips together for a few tray mats and a little bit left over will make up a couple of mug rugs...

I had to piece some of the backing and of course scraps of wadding from the edges of quilts - lovely to have an empty scrap tub


I will just do simple quilting and bind .....

Woke up this morning to the wonderful sound of gentle rain....  


you can see how brown the grass is.... crispy to walk on....

Righto, Gotto Go..... I'm going to finish off those tray mats and then get to work....

Have a lovely rest of the week......

This Tuesday is a "me" day for me too. It's my Bday! ;^P. I do believe you that it took all morning to sew those little blocks. Sometimes they take longer than bigger blocks to assemble. But they are so cute. You did a great job, Fiona. Enjoy! ;^)

I need a me day, can't remember the last time I had a day to myself without having to worry about other things. It looks like you got a lot done, and wonderful blocks for a quilt.

You got a lot done in a morning! Good idea to still sew even if you weren't with the rest of the group... I am so enjoying the winter weather... xx

Oh LOVE your little blocks, another productive morning. Great to see the rain.

Janice said...

They may be time consuming, but your blocks are super cute. We have had a very pleasant 5mm of rain overnight. Here's hoping we get a little more.

Sounds like you had your very own little mini retreat! I love the safari scrap mats, those neutral colors are very soothing to me. I think I've been stitching too many bright lately and need a neutral brain reset :)

Love your DT blocks but my favourite would have to be the wallhanging
