Some sewing .....

Before we went away for the weekend I had made lots of these blocks of fabric from my blue scraps.....



I have started sewing yellow strips to the sides.... then for pressing and awaiting a machine sewing day with friends next week

I got cajolled into joining in a sweet little sewalong.... hosted by CrabApple Hill on facebook and instagram.... #crapapplesal  to commemorate a month of embroidery.

Each day a sweet little stitchery is done using different stitches.... she has not made them crazy challenging so it is achievable in a day (usually)








Being away I kept up with the stitcheries but not adding them to wadding and backing and doing the edges in blanket stitch......

They are up to date for the first week now...


Quite a few social media friends are doing it too and it's fun sewing together...

This morning I stitched up some more but I haven't taken pictures.... a stitching morning with Michelle which is always fun and goes too fast!

This afternoon I sewed up a couple more Schoolgirl Sampler blocks.... these are 4 1/2" and once I have cut the fabrics they don't take too long to do.... I am a couple of weeks behind so a fair bit of catching up to do....


I've had a happy time reading blogs and seeing what others are doing..... so much is tempting though.... it really does amaze me what gets made... such lovely things...

Righto, Gotto Go...... I think I'll have a cup of tea .... take care, keep creating .....

A great use of your blue scraps Fiona - they look like they will be a fun project and will look great sewn together with the yellow. And your little stitcheries look good too - will they all get sewn onto a background? I love the soft pretty colours you are using for that and the Schoolgirl Sampler blocks.
