Once home I had to have a nap as the night really had been disturbed. Feeling refreshed I set about doing some sewing. This year I'm trying to do a minimum of half an hour a day on at least one of my projects and so far I've succeeded.
I decided I wanted to make the tablecloth pattern that came in my subscription box. The first thing to do was to cut the fabrics. I now have all the pieces cut and I'm ready to start sewing on Thursday.
Picasso had been helping in the cutting process, trying to hold down fabric but also worringly getting his tail in the way. I told him firmly that he could help but please keep all body parts away from the cutting edge. His response was to settle himself on my hat (yes it is a bear hat) facing the other way. He spent some time studiously ignoring me.
I'm joining in with the Tiny Tuesday blocks at So Scrappy The first block was released last week on the 1st January. The colour this month for the RSC19 is red so I hunted out some red string scraps. The blocks make up at 5 inches and I quickly had my completed block. This is a first for me as I haven't made any string blocks like this before.
The second block was released yesterday. I won't have time to make it today but I'll get it done before the end of the week.
I also wrote about the pillow I made for Lucy. I realised I'd never shown the completed item so here's a picture.
The cover has just been washed but it didn't get ironed. Lucy doesn't iron anything if she can get away with it. As she said, by the time she's leaned against the pillow for a while the creases will all be flattened out.
This evening we restart our guide meetings so I won't have time for much sewing but I have got some hand stitching with me in case I get a little time over my lunch break. Tomorrow I have a day off and I've planned in sewing. Unfortunately I have several household chores to do including ironing which I will try to finish in the morning, the afternoon can then be nothing but sewing.
