Friday Night Sew In [bits and pieces]

I worked on a few projects last night, but couldn't really settle.

First up was my Bee block for Stash Bee - the colour inspiration was Americana/4th July - it turns out that I don't have many true true blues in my stash, but eventually I found something I was happy with.

Although this isn't my favourite colour combination, I like the block and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Having said it isn't my favourite colour combination, the next thing I worked on was a baby quilt in the same colours. So many people we know are having babies at the moment. And they are all boys. So this is the first of quite a few baby quilts - so far I've cut all the circles, but got no further.

And then I pulled out the Rhubarb and Custard quilt - this got stuffed in a draw when I stitched something wrong and couldn't be bothered to unpick - never a good idea. I unpicked and re-stitched. then I carried on and made quite a bit of progress with the sashing - all four rows have the shorter sashing strips added, and the top two rows are joined together as well! Three rows are still in the drawer waiting....

Having said that everyone is having baby boys recently, I became an Aunty again last week - my brand new NIECE (yes - it was a girl) was born last Friday as my plane touched down (she was a week late - waiting for her Aunty Jennie to come home) weighing 6lb13oz and born just 4 minutes after Mum and Dad arrived at hospital! So at least I can make one pink quilt :-)

I'm off to check out what other people have been up to
