Sewing frenzy!

Hi all,

I am in a bit of a sewing frenzy at the moment! My mojo is pumping! LOL I hope it sticks around for a bit….

First up, let me warn you that I am still trying to figure out our new camera, it is nothing like the old one which I realise now was fantastic and easy to use. All my photos are fuzzy ….ugh…. very frustrating.

For sewing day last week at Christine’s I took my machine so I could get the rest of the Broken Dishes blocks made…

Since sewing day I have sewn them into the required units for the quilt….I have 15 x light Jamestown Square blocks, 15 x dark Jamestown Square blocks, 22 x half Jamestown Square blocks and 46 x Broken Dishes blocks.

I have made a pair of potholders for my Aunt and Uncle who put us up for a night on our holiday. Just to say thank you!

They are 10” square. I made 2 square in a square (I think thats what they would be called) blocks, cut them into quarters and swapped them around a bit. And ta-da two gorgeous blocks that would also look great repeated for a quilt. I have run out of insulbright now, some more is on my sewing shopping list…I love making potholders!

And as if I need more projects here are two I couldn’t resist…

This is a Colour Block Placemats and Napkins sew-along. I thought I might use up some of my DS Fabrics for this one as I am making 2 sets that will coordinate and be for everyday use. 

This is a stitchery book by Helen from Hugs n’ Kisses. I am a bit late joining this one but I have always wanted to do something like this and the end result is gorgeous!

I am starting with Lesson 2. Because lesson 1’s PDF wouldn’t download with the proper font for the title, hopefully I can go back and get it later.

So there you have it, my ever growing list of WIP’s! I just can’t help myself!

It really is full steam ahead at your place :o)
Love all the blue blocks and the pot holders are so nice and summery.
Enjoy your sewing.

Nice pot holders! And your broken dishes blocks come along nicely. I was also looking at the table mats by OF, but think I'm putting them on hold for a while. I'm having too much on my plate already.

Wow, your needles must be smoking, you have so many great things going on. I love the broken dishes block a lot, one of my favourites.
