Looking for a name!

I have had this pattern in my stash for over three 

years now!

It was a Block of the Month by Brigitte @Zen Chic

And a state of lockdown means no shopping except 

for groceries and medical supplies.

So, I did some stash diving and got cutting!

 I chose to cut the twenty rectangles first.

Then the blocks.

They are 6” and 12” blocks so all pretty 

straightforward, except the pattern is in German.

But there are good diagrams so nothing I couldn’t 

figure out.

Strangely I never found out the official name for it.

I went looking on her new and old blog but could 

find no reference to it.

It seems it was released through Instagram, but still 

without a name!

TeaRoseHome design

So while I sew masks I'll be contemplating what I 

should call it.

My husband has laid claim to this one!

Any ideas???

I recently gifted one of my quilts and received both  

a delicious box of chocolates and this photo as a 

thank you.

Oscar looks quite at home there, don't you think?

Happy sewing!

Keep calm and sew on.....!

Thank you for all my lovely commenters following my last Blogpost.

My sister's pretty courtyard.
Thankfully I had the opportunity to get a neat haircut that will last me the six weeks of our current lockdown.

I have been sewing!

A new skirt....

I need to tweak the buttoning.....

to make it sit flat, but nothing that will take too much fixing!

There's no hurry, I'm not going anywhere for a while!

Happy sewing!

Cotton, wool etc

While I was away, before our recent alarming COVID-19 spike,
    I bought this from an Instagram destash sale.
And this....

 I've spent some time unravelling a hand-knitted cardigan.

It belongs to my sister, and I
 obviously love the colour!

My grandson Eli is 4 soon, and he is a budding doctor.
         So some mini-scrubs were requested!

I have been making this skirt, with buttons I still need to purchase to complete it.

I've purchased a pattern for a pinafore to be made from this lovely denim a friend gave me!

Finally, I have slowly been English Paper Piecing my Quattro Colour blocks...

I must admit, with the possibility of another lockdown and online teaching looming, my enthusiasm for anything sewing related is dwindling!

Stay safe, stay strong friends!
