Last week, in which I sewed, swam, and for a little light relief, killed an iphone.

Loz and I spent the last few days on holiday. (Read all about it here!) It was very fun! Our main reason for going was to SEW, SEW, SEW, which we did. (And here are the photos to prove it) First up for me were some overalls for grandson. Finished relatively quickly actually! Then I started stitching the pies.

I stitched, and stitched, and stitched. Spent hours stitching in fact! Not sure if I am doing these pies correctly cause they seem to take me forever to stitch them! I am happy with what I got done however cause now I am almost finished month two. (Did I mention I am slow?)

This was our first sunset. Isn't it pretty? I was so overcome I decided to take a dip, which is how the iphone was killed. Dead. *sigh* Oh well. It is now part of Rosemary Hill's folklore. (Translation - all the kids laugh whenever the story is told.) Hmm, a new week lies in front of me, here's hoping it will be full of sewing and relatively few technologically murderous situations.

I am still laughing!! Great holiday.....and I like your pic taken from the water...at least you had the foresight to hand the camera to me before you took the plunge...! Are you stitching pies today?

Is it definitely dead or will a stint in the sun dry it out and revive it?. Looks like you both had a wonderful time.

Looks like you and Loz had a lovely time away .. nothing like girly time chating and sewing. Bad luck about your phone. I am about to embark on the pies and tarts challenge and I know it will take me forever I am a slow sewer. I finally finished putting all the hexagons together that I started at She Sew Sundays .. I have spent hours and hours on it but enjoyed sitting doing it by hand. Have a good week. Cheers Sue

In my experience mobiles also die when you fall out of a kayak and the waterproof pouch wasn't actually waterproof! Glad you enjoyed the sewing anyway x

I love those pie blocks. I can't wait to see the quilt finished. I want to make one. It's definitely on my list.

Great overall! Your week sounds excellent - except for the iphone bit!

Love those overalls! Did you use the classic Lily/Aiden pattern? The whole ipod thing sounds fishy - maybe your phone wanted to return to some evolutionary branch - not your fault at all! (That's what I would tell my kids anyway).
