Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a peaceful day. It’s been raining pretty much all day here. I stepped out for lunch and a sewing session today and got wet every time I got out of the car!!! I sure hope it dries out over night because I have another outing tomorrow.
I had a delicious lunch with Anne at the Carnaby Café in Brownieside. It’s a café that I have known about for a while but never had the chance to go. After lunch we went back to Anne’s for a little sewing and a catch up. To transport my sewing project, I dragged out and emptied a box …..
And filled it with a few bits which I prepped even before I had my breakfast …..
By the end of the afternoon I had prepped this …..
The light wasn’t very good for photography but I thought I’d publish the shots of my progress for today anyway.
When I was searching for a small project box, I chose the one that was the emptiest. This particular box contained these bits from sometime ago. In fact, there was a note in the box dated 2013!!! Now that I have found this UFO I feel compelled to finished it! I figure I probably have enough fabric squares here to make a baby quilt. The two blocks which were pieced way back in 2013 were pieced by hand. So, I guess I’ll finish piecing the blocks by hand. I can adopt this as my armchair project alternating between my hexagons and fine hand appliqué projects.
So, that was my day. I got out and about while still doing a little bit of sewing. There’s something about hand sewing, chatting and drinking coffee that seem to go hand in hand. I had a very relaxing day thanks to Anne. It was great to get out and do something different. So, I guess that was my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy. Until next time,
Let’s keep on stitching.
