Some of what we have been up to this summer...
|Cousins at the farm|
Time behind the sewing machine has been few and far between it seems these last couple of months. Due to this I haven't kept up too well with the Patchwork, Please Sew Along.
But this week's project was a simple one that I could squeeze in to life! It was the Happy Hexagon Trivet.
Ta-da! I used a combo of special fabrics... Some Japanese fabric and some fabric that my grandma gave me from her stash. I love using them... Makes me feel connected to her and her passion of sewing.
I also got my bee blocks all put together
The mint green plus in the middle column in the second from the bottom row is mo longer there. It is a block I made and on its own it worked but putting it all together it is too close in value to the background, which became evident in this photo. Some careful unsewing allowed me to replace the plus without having to pull rows off the quilt. Now to get it quilted!
Once school starts (after Labor Day here) my Mondays are me alone at home... A regular date with my sewing machine! Yay!
