No Sew!

Hi guys,

This week I had huge plans to work on and hopefully finish this quilt -

This is my mini quilt that I was/am hoping to enter in the modern mini quilt challenge….will have to see how it goes now.

This is what has been happening instead -

Welcome to my home….excuse the mess! Over there beyond the fireplace is a mountain of tiles, they are getting laid now!

This has all happened rather quickly, considering that the tiles have been sitting there for about 18 months, on Monday life was happening as per normal and Tuesday it all went haywire!

Not that I am complaining, it is going to look AWESOME!

I will show some proper before and after photos next week, I think it will take a few more days yet. I am missing my sewing machine though, but I literally can’t even get close enough to touch it! Might need to do some hand work…

Oh dear! I really don't like these kind of things, especially if I'm not prepared for them. Just keep the end result in mind; it's a bit like giving birth to a baby ;).... isn't it? I hope it all goes smoothly and that you'll be able to get to your sewing machine soon again. Looking forward to seeing your take on the mini modern quilt.

Renovations are always so inconvenient but the end result makes it all worth while! I look forward to seeing the photos.

It will be worth the wait.....the results, plus getting back to your machine and working on those withdrawal symptoms.

Oh man, bummer on the timing! The mini's looking fab so far too...

I am loving your modern quilt. Renovations do get in the way of the sewing but it will look great when it is finished.

Let them do all the hard work and you pull out some hand stitching. Don't forget, short term pain, long term gain.

I'm sure you'll love that new tile! Your machine will be there after the tile gets laid.

Hand sewing can be a very peaceful place when all the rest of your world is chaos. I totally understand the normal one day and who dropped the bomb the next. And having stuff stacked up around you for 12 months plus. Believe me the finish line is so worth the hassle.
