ChooseDay sewing


This week's One Block Wednesdays are done....  I had a few already done so only had to make some of them....



Lyn does lovely embroidery (as a business) and gave me these two personalised towels... they look very sophisticated having the monograms in the same colour as the towel....  pretty as well as useful


It's been a while since I have done any work for the Moda Blockheads blocks where I am trying to use scraps... some of the blocks are big and I have had to delve into bigger pieces.

This week I got this one done... It's 24" square ……… like a quilt on it's own and nearly took me the whole day to do! 


Mind you we did take a bit of a break and watched a movie for a change....  I borrowed this from the library so we sat and did some hand sewing.  A delightful story even if it made me cry a bit!


 I didn't have much to do on this little block... in contrast to the pieced one this one is 4" …


another block towards my United Stitches - still lots more to go....

Righto, Gotto Go..... the day is bursting with anticipation …. (not really but I'm trying to get motivated!)

With all your celebrating you have had time for some lovely sewing, unlike myself!!. The Wednesday blocks are looking lovely all together (boy have I got some catching up to do - one more wedding to go). Your big square was worth every minute spent on it.

Woohoo fantastic big block, it looks amazing! Worth the time and effort. Loved that movie and the book. I am off to cut some one Blocks blocks and listen to the Worlds Greatest Showman. Beautiful little stitchery Fiona. Well done on being up to date with your blocks.

Two projects I said I'd do... my blockheads languished a long time ago and I haven't yet started my One Block blocks...I do live in hope though and I love how both of these are looking for you. The towels look extra posh with the monograms and that's a cute wee stitchery block :-)
