Hello friends! I've not been the most productive sewer - or blogger, for that matter recently. The summer always get's a little busier for me, Sew and Quilt is busier, I work more hours at my day job and take on a part-time Saturday job as well! I generally have more of a social life in the summer months too, oh and there's that fiance Robin of mine who needs attention every now and again ;-) and not forgetting that wedding I have to plan for this October in Maui! Needless to say, sewing sometimes drops to the bottom of the to-do list - though maybe not as often as it probably should though ...
I did squeeze in some sewing time yesterday morning before work and got two more Farmer's Wife quilt blocks done. I prepped them the previous evening and chain pieced them as quick as possible the next day. Of course chain piecing in a hurry isn't a smart idea for me as I managed to incorrectly piece the centre pinwheel in block #38 - only to notice after I had posted a photo on Instagram, oops! Oh well, all fixed now :-)
Blocks: #37 Flower Pot / #38 Four Winds.
You may have noticed in the title that I have no idea what week I'm on with the FWQAL... I need to address that asap and get back on track, I like to know where I am on a project otherwise I feel a little bit lost. I'm planning on sharing two new blocks a week with you on Friday's; Farmer's Wife Friday ;-) that should help me along a bit, I think I used to do this but didn't keep it up? I'm also about to embark on a new weekly craft project too, so I will update you each week on this too - more on that soon! and generally get a little more organised. Wish me luck! xo
