Gutted

Well I was gutted to realise I had missed WIP Wednesday. Ironically I was so taken up with some very mindful sewing and chilling out (am on holiday - squee!!) that I totally forgot what day it was ....
But then I remembered about the new linky party on Maybush studio and all was saved :-)
So what's been under my feet this week? Well I spent the weekend being a quilting Yoda to a friend who has never quilted before but was making a quilt for her sisters wedding (week on Saturday, no pressure then ...) but she had the blocks made. The binding should now be sewed on, so Ruth, if you are reading this and the binding is not sewn down then get back to the sewing machine!
I caught up with loads, the latest Craftsy block, a giant tumbling block. This was my first choice of fabrics:

Crafty reject

Well what was I thinking! That's all a bit 'meh'

I far prefer my final choice:

craftsy July block
Much better.

Also done and dusted is my bloggers block of the month quilt. This is from 2011 .... Ahem, better late than never. I loved doing this BOM, it was be of the first I did online. I did it while undergoing chemotherapy so it is especially poignant for me. Flickr, blogs and generally quilting online in general was a godsend while I was ill. So it's quite fitting that this little baby is heading off for Project Linus.

Bloggers block of the month, finished

So that's been my week, see you same time next week, unless I forget :-)
