Home again...


So we're home again. And this was the sight that greeted me yesterday morning as I mooched around wondering what to do. A cupboard full of things to do! However I was completely uninspired and did nothing. Well, I did sort out the hand stitching I had been doing on the train. Today was a different story.


I was wanting to make a quilt, but didn't really know where to start. Then I remembered the reproduction nine-patch swap I did a couple of years ago with Christine as the swap Mama. Hooray! A quilt with all the patchwork done! (I so am finishing things this year!) I laid them out and decided that there were four blocks I wasn't in love with. Two could be dispensed with, but two needed to be replaced so I made two more nine-patches and then laid the blocks out (see photo above). Isn't it beautiful? I even have border fabric for it! I really am liking this. I am going to give it to a friend, so it even has somewhere to go once it is finished. Must get back to sewing those rows together!

Looks good, this layout might be a good use for some nine-patches that I have discovered lurking in a box.

This is so nice, love the squares. Can't wait to see the end product. It feels nice to get projects finished. I often start things and don't finish them. Why is that? Must get sick of doing them and something else just looks more appealing. Must start something and finish it. I'm crocheting a rug at the moment and am determined to finish it - a leg rug, which will be given to my work for them to sell or raffle or do something with to raise money at our next trash and treasure market on the 2nd of June.

You're one wild and crazy gal with all this finishing activity going on at your place.

I love the way your quilt is looking.
