Staying busy!

 I can honestly say I don't remember how long we

 have been in lockdown.

But sewing helps me punctuate my days!

I certainly don't have the focus to baste or quilt, 

Although I have pieced together

 a modified version of my Smorgasbord quilt.

And enjoy evenings EPP'ing my Quattro Colour quilt.

I'm up to the last round, aiming for an October 1st 


I have chosen some smaller projects too...

A new cushion in more subdued colours.

Using up every scrap of these fabrics!

I sorted out my dressmaking fabric stash and

made a Style Arc "Eme" dress.

Happy sewing indeed!

I enjoyed EVERY minute of making this pinafore!

While the pattern was pricey, the fabric was free!

So no complaints there!

The instructions are clear and detailed.

The tailoring details were time-consuming but very 

enjoyable to achieve.

It was great to focus and concentrate on new skills.

I had hoped to use my Juki's twin needle but due to 

lockdown, couldn't leave the house to shop for thread.

                                    Or buttons!

So eventually I found these cool hand made Liberty 


Maybe they don't exactly match the lining but I'm ok 

with that!

You get a better idea of the finishing details here....

I am really looking forward to breaking out and 

wearing this!

Until then, these photos will need to suffice!

Happy sewing!

Smorgasbord Quilt

Yes, I've decided on a name for my solids quilt!

While the designer is not Scandanavian,  I feel this fits!

All these blocks are 6 1/2 " 

I thought it was time to introduce a little bit of white....

it was feeling a little Amish!

I've made another seven blocks this weekend,

after finishing my 28th mask on Friday!

I have another three 6 1/2" blocks and 

three 12" blocks to make!

 But it's back to online teaching tomorrow,

so these will have to wait!

Happy sewing!
