The sun was shining in
this weekend. As it comes out so
infrequently, I was just dying to get outside.
But I also really wanted to sew.
What to do? What to do? Move your sewing machine out to the back
garden, of course! I packed her up along
with my Chaos scraps and moved the whole show out to the picnic table. I was a chain piecing maniac out there. It was very breezy, so basic piecing was
about all I could do.
Since the hens have had a few awful run-ins with the local dog, I now only let them out when I am around to supervise. So, this lady joined me for a long while. It was a great sunny afternoon out for everyone!
Once back, inside I focused on my paper pieced block for Hilary. Hilary and I are in Sew &Bee Happy together and she wanted us to help make a quilt for her son’s 21st birthday. What a great quilt to be a part of! Hilary went to the time to design a block and template for paper piecing that are now available on her blog along with a really great tutorial.
This is possibly the most complicated block I have ever attempted. It is not perfect, but I am quite pleased with how it came together.
Keep your eyes pealed…many more bee blocks to come later this week!
