I had to have a break......

.... from these boxes....


I had already managed to make the border from the 2" blocks....


... and whenever Hubz wasn't looking I hid in the sewing room and did a bit more.... (he thought I was sorting stuff!!)


.... but I discovered that this is true for me....



... and this morning whilst Hubz caught up on the World Cup Rugby he had recorded, I did a bit more 'sorting'.....


I love this top......


This is Anni Downs "Natures Journey" and I have used a range of French General fabrics "Lumiere de Noel"


... and I purchased some plain red French General for the binding.....


... now it's folded up together and packed in a box.....


Big thanks and Hugz to Chookyblue who hosts the StitchALong and trusty Susan who helps out with a bit of whip cracking..... and all the girls who sewalong and are so encouraging to each other....

Righto, Gotto Go... I think oven cleaning is the worst job in the process of moving house so I think I will get it over and done with.....

Everyone needs to stop and 'sort' through their fabric every now and again, especially when in the process of packing it up! Beautiful top. You've done Annie proud. XO

Not hard to see why you love your NJ. It's beautiful in FG. Keep up the good work packing, it will be over soon.

Your quilt is so beautiful. I know exactly what you mean about packing. We moved about two years ago and it was so hard. I kept hand work out to keep me somewhat sane, because you can only take so much packing. Good luck on your move and the dreaded unpacking!

Raewyn said...

I would be the same, just needing a fix to keep me going! Your top looks beautiful - well done!! And great choice using the FG fabrics too! I'm excited to read you are getting a sw16 - you will love it :-)
