A LITTLE IS BETTER THAN NOTHING


Only a little stitching and crochet has been happening here. I have been rather kapooped, ( not sure if that is a real word but it is certainly very descriptive), due to the usual lack of sleep . Just keeping up with household tasks , grocery shopping, and spending time with my grandsons  is enough to see me laying on the couch watching Netflix or Stan. However, a little achievement is better than none.

My Sashiko cushion top is finished and I am auditioning fabrics for a border to make it into a table topper. I had a specific Japanese fabric in mind but discovered that I had used it all. So, these Japanese squares are all I could find in my stash. I am not quite sure if they are suitable so I shall ponder for a while.



My pile of little crocheted hexies is growing.



It didn't take me long to read this wonderful book. Her new book is out now so it is on my list.




A couple of my gorgeous blog friends are unwell at the moment or experiencing life's ups and downs.  My thoughts are with you. 

Many angel healing hugs and blessings to you all.

ALMOST THERE


Not much stitching has been happening here but I am catching up. All the hand quilting has been done on my table topper but I am unsure how to proceed with the borders. I thought of machine quilting straight lines , then I thought of hand quilting straight lines, then I thought of just hand quilting around each hexie on the borders but that would still not solve the border dilemma. Any ideas? No ironing happening here either lol.




My Sashiko was quick, easy and enjoyable to do. I don't want to make it into a cushion but thought I would just put a border around it with Japanese fabric I had in my stash. Wrong! Looks like I used it all on another project. Still pondering now but I don't want it to become a UFO.



Feeling tired and lazy I decided that I needed something to do while watching Netflix. I discovered these cute crocheted hexies to make on Bunny Mummy's blog. I have no idea what I will do with them yet but I am just enjoying the journey.



Well, as Bugs Bunny said, " that's all folks".

No idea why that came to mind lol.

Angel Blessings.
