A Sewing Party

Who could resist an invitation to a sewing party?    The weather bureau has issued a weather alert for gale force winds,  local flooding and do not drive on the roads unless absolutely necessary so what a good excuse to sit and sew without having to feel guilty about sewing  all weekend.   The weeds in the garden will still be there when the rain decides to move on - they will be easier to tackle when the ground is soaked.

Taking a break from quilting the big girl bed quilt I decided to have a play with my May circles.  I had fallen behind by about a week so time to catch up.


I have now completed five months worth of blocks which are all piled up ready to be trimmed.


Time to go find scraps for this months colours for the  Rainbow scrap challenge which are blues tending toward aqua  along with a pop of lime green.    I could think of one fabric straightaway that I had and surprisingly I found a few more that fit the bill.  


 Some of these fabrics will need  fussing cutting in order to try and keep as close to possible to the colours.     But that is for another day.

The sewing party is going all weekend and if you would like to join in the fun and help celebrate Chookshed's 4th birthday  it is not too late to sign up over here.

Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all

Great group of blues you have gathered together for next month. It's fun to see those little piles of circles add up isn't it?

Well done! You kept up this month, which is more than I've been able to do! I like your blues and greens for the RSC, that should make for some nice blocks.
