Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all having an enjoyable day. Times are different around here in my little corner of the northeast of England. There’s more traffic going past my house these days. We have a bit more freedom all the while staying alert. I’m still not going very far or very often. I feel quite safe at home at the moment. Like everyone else, I’ll probably soon be venturing out a little further from home while respecting social distancing.

Along with a few household chores and safely welcoming a chartered surveyor into my home, I have made more progress on my row quilt. All the blocks have been prepped ready for fine hand appliqué stitching. Here’s what I’ve got so far …..

Row Quilt Progress

And here’s the stack of blocks that will become the last row which doesn’t fit on the display board along with the other five rows …..

Heart Blocks

Today is not the ideal day for taking photos indoors or out. This afternoon it’s overcast but not raining yet. So, you’ll have to excuse the poor quality of the photos. I have enjoyed prepping these blocks. And now I’ve got a nice quiet job to work on while watching mindless TV in the evening. No doubt there will be endless hot drinks consumed while I work on this little lot. I love a bit of Freezer Paper appliqué work me.

Life is much more relaxed now. The fear of the invisible enemy is dissipating slowly. Each day is more interesting than the last. Progress is being made, just a little every single day. We have to be brave and strong and keep moving forward.

Well, my lovely friends, I guess that’s my news for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you ever so happy. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.

  1. The blocks & rows are looking fabulous & will definitely keep you busy of an evening. We are venturing a little further occasionally for a different walk & take our lunch & thermos with us, somewhere quiet. DH had to get a few items for fixing our trailer, so worked that in as well. Enjoy stitching, stay safe & huggles.


    1. Hi Susan, I’m glad you’re getting out while getting stuff done. The virus may be about but we still have lives to live. I managed to finish fine hand stitching the hearts this evening leaving five more rows to complete. Pretty good progress if you ask me. Thanks for popping in xx
