 Time just flies. I think we all know that feeling even though some days seem to drag on when we are feeling unwell and uninspired. I was on a roll with my angel blocks and then life got in the way leaving me without my stitching mojo. Sometimes it just takes something a little different to get me back stitching. I have wanted to make a wool felt penny rug table topper for years. As I have built up a small stash of wool felt in Autumnal colours as well as brights I decided to have a play with the colours and started to sew some 3 layer pennies. With a mug, glass bottle and a alcohol nip measurer ( I have no idea what these are called), I traced the 3 different sizes, cut them out and blanket stitched them with a much larger stitch than I usually do. Now I have almost run out of these colours and hope some more arrive with an order this week so I can keep stitching and actually complete something. I must say that I love stitching wool. It is so soft and pliable to use.

I have finally completed reading another book. This one is non fiction about a wonderful woman who helped around 1000 Jewish children to escape Paris when it was occupied by the Nazis. 
I decided to get back to basting my munchkin's quilt yesterday after my earlier attempt failed. This time I used masking tape to secure the backing to the floor and it worked. So, I am smiling again and ready to try my hand at simple machine quilting. Wish me luck!
Angel Blessings.
