Fresh Sewing Day

I'm become a bit of a slow blogger.  I'm busy creating and loving the slower pace of hand pieced projects which I hope to share with you soon.


So May's big finish was my Field Study triangles quilt, which now lives on our bed. My seventh finish of the year but who's counting?!

There were the usual bee blocks - some super pretty improv. blocks for Di in aqua teal and turquoise and some HST blocks in shades of grey with pops of colour for Christine.

May saw the beginning of some more hand stitching when I completed my first Camelot block and am really pleased with it. I'm half way through the second block, which is proving a lot more challenging! I also began sewing my aqua, orange and grey hexy flowers together.

I have had lots of lovely happy mail this week, which I shall show and tell soon. In the meantime, I'm off to make a project book for all this hand sewing!

Linking up with Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day.

Beautiful projects! I love the camelot blocks - Every time I see them I'm tempted!

Seventh finish is awesome! I would be counting out loud for all my sewing friends to hear. That's more than one a month. It'll never happen for me. Too busy with working part time as well as family and home, I'm happy with finishing one so far and having pieced two others.
