WIP Wednesday [Patchwork of the Crosses]

My husband turned to me tonight when he got home and said "you seem more energised today". I guess with a two-week old baby in the house, that's quite a  compliment! I think a number of things have contributed to this today. The first was a lie-in - Mummy and Mia both slept until 10am today! Going out for lunch also helped - down to the cafe on the quayside with Linda, Steph, Ellie-Jo and Mia.


But the key to a good day is some sewing - even if it's just ten minutes snatched while Daddy does nappy duty. It makes me feel normal. And my go to project has been some English Paper Piecing in the shape of Patchwork of the Crosses (you can find more info on this project in my previous post here).

I've completed my second block

And block 3 is basted

Mia is delightful! My brother's baby girl is now 3 months old - I haven't seen her in 2 months. Hurrah on getting some paper piecing done.

She is beautiful. I think it is amazing you find and take the time to do a little quilting with a 2 week old! The blocks are beautiful too.

Such a great project to pick up and work on for a few minutes. I've finally settled on the fabrics for my next ring (the next row on what you already have) so am hoping to start cutting and prepping in the next day or two :o) hugs

Oh my gosh, I totally gave up quilting for years while my son grew up - KUDOS for keepin' at it! I think it really would have helped me if I hadn't! What a little sweetie! Just count the blessings as they come - before you know it - they are 13 and almost as tall as you! :) Seems like yesterday he was 2 weeks old!
