A Busy Day

I have been a bit behind in my sewing over the last few weeks, I am not even sure why because I have had time, and material, and set projects I should have been working on...
I made up for it today and got a lot done!

First was all the 9 patch blocks for Mai lout Number 5 of Sheridan's block swap.

Lara's fabrics almost had me in a panic, I had no idea what I was going to put with them... Bright seemed to be the order of the day, I hope they are ok.

It is hard to see in the below photo, but the red is actually a red polka dot, which belongs to Lisa. I went with a green print, and a grey print from my stash for these two.

This pink belongs to Helen. I matched it with a lime green dot and a purple/grey fabric.

Then there was the Round Robin Block Swap.

My first mail out was some beautiful fabric belonging to Anna. This is just a sneak peak as I am not allowed to show what my completed block is.

As is was a rainy day today, Miss Possum was also well entertained thanks to Nikki at My Black Cardigan and her fantastic kids book idea. Many thanks for the email Nikki, as you can see it is already in very good use :)

I decided that instead of printing the animals onto coloured paper I would let Miss Possum colour them in before cutting them out to assemble her book. This went down very well even if Miss Apples nearly got in the way of the crayons and had to be removed to a safe distance...

And this is my 100th post!! I was trying to think of a giveaway option but have decided with baby #2 imminent it is all a bit much so will just do something extra special next milestone, maybe my 1 year blogversary or some such :)


  1. Ohhhh, you got my fabric first! Yay, looks great from the sneaky peak. And well done and getting lots done, days like that are rare but appreciated!

  2. Congratulations on 100 posts - I dont blame you for not having a wahm bahm celebration - put your feet up and rest - Enjoy the time that you have left with Possum as the only child. I think that you are doing enough at the moment!

  3. Oh you have been busy - not nesting are you ? :-)
    And congrats on 100 posts!

  4. So much sewing! I like the sneak peek, I can't wait to see what all the finished blocks are like :)

  5. Ohhhh, I love the lime green combo for my blocks!

  6. You have been busy! Loving the sneek peak. I must do mine! A bit slack at the moment!
