Something had to give....

When nursing duties took over, 

the blogging went first!

Then the sewing!

But I'm still here!

 I've manage to make....


 a solid spiderweb block for Cindy!

pieced more of my Scrappy Sandwiches,


and spend some time playing with even more scraps!

Just a 'sneak peek' of the back at the moment!
And today I cut into my precious little

 Liberty stash....


to make a new cushion.

Finally, I have a new addition to my library.


Kathy Doughty's new book has some amazing 

inspiration, 

not just in pictures but words too!

Would you like a review?

Here's to more sewing days,

and less nursing ones!

Happy days!

  2. I love the scrappy sandwiches! You and I also seem to have a bit of overlap in our Liberty purchases. I am still not brave enough to cut into mine. I need a plan.
    I hope the hubby's bones are mending.

  3. Your scrappy sandwiches have a wonderful balance and contrast. Pleased to see you now have time for a little more than nursing - which is good news for both you and hubby.

  12. I'd be interested in a book review.
    Hope the nursing duties haven't been too difficult. As a nurse I know how demanding some patients can be!!
    Have you managed to keep up to date with the friendship x and plus blocks?

  24. I bought Kathy's book, too, but haven't even cracked it open (regretfully), but I look forward to it. (Maybe tonight?)

    Your other projects look great, even the "secret" project. Love your spiderweb!

  26. Seems like you're getting things done to me even if it you don't think so. I just happen to have Kathy's Material Obsession books from the library right now. Would love to get a look at her new book soon. A review would be great.

  28. Even your WIPs are gorgeous! Every one of them. I know how frustrating it is to not be able to do what you want to do. Hang in there. This will pass, eventually, and life will be normal again. In the meantime, thanks for taking time to share your lovelies. They are just that!
