Back in the Sewing Room

As I said in my prior post, I've not really sewn in the last 6 weeks except for two bee blocks. Today I spent some time in my sewing room and worked on the following 4 blocks. The purple still needs to be sewn down but I don't have matching thread and the blocks need to be trimmed to correct size once that is completed. It's not my best work, but I'm behind the machine again!

The Sampler Guild I'm in met on Saturday. Drop in here and see what everyone was working on.

I'm off to stitch a bit - I hope you each have a great week!

Doesn't it feel great to get back to the sewing machine after not being able to get to it for a while? Your blocks are looking great! And love seeing the projects that your Guild members are working on. Too bad those Ann Dale starts had to be frogged. :o(

I think they're all gorgeous. I always feel like I could move mountains after a sewing hiatus. Starting again feels so good!

Getting back to the sewing room is theraputic isn't it? Your blocks look great, keep up the sewing time, it's good for the soul.

My first thought, when I saw your wonderful appliqued flowers, was, 'How sweet to see such happy flowers, just in time for spring!" Love the colours!

Beautiful! I love appliqué but haven't tried doing it on the machine.

Cynthia said...

The blocks looks awesome. I will be starting what I call my first applique project soon. I am looking forward to it, but know that it is going to involve a lot of work.
