This week has been out of routine for me so I have made the most of the extra time and spent quite a bit of it in my sewing room.    Today was such a lovely sunny warm day that I decided to take advantage of it and move my sewing room outside and do some cutting out.    It was a bit like a cut-a-thon as I managed to cut out a pair of pj pants, two pj tops and a pair of mid weight pants for Miss M and 2 pairs of pants for myself as can be seen below.


It was then onto the Rainbow Scrap challenge to cut out  fabrics and sew my blocks for this months colour of orange with a touch of either black or brown which posed quite a challenge as I do not have many fabrics with orange in them.    As can be seen  some of the squares are more  brown or gold rather than orange but when put together they seem to all blend in.

A few more Circles added to my pile

So tonight I will be doing the mundane task of pulling the threads through and tying them off.

Thanks again Wendy for hosting another fun day and night of sewing.  I am looking forward to doing some blog hopping over the weekend to have a "look see" at what everyone else got up to tonight.  

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Lovely projects, pulling threads through always a pet hate of mine but oh so rewarding when finished :)

Rosie said...

Lots of lovely projects going on over at your place.

Very nice things you are working on there. I am with you and Helen with the pulling through of the threads, but the blocks look amazing when they are done.

I adore your rainbow scrap challenge piece. I love working with scraps. They always end up looking a lot nicer than we ever think they will, don't they?

You were very productive - love the scrap blocks and the circles will be wonderful when they are all together
