Marching right along

What better way to spend a rainy day than in the sewing room along with a screen full of sewing buddies from all around the world.

Chookyblue was celebrating her blog's 15th birthday and we were all there via the screen to help this occasion happen.   As always it is a fun day with lots of laughter as well as sewing.   As  you know I am currently sewing for my open day market stall in 25 days time......that close!!!!!! and plenty of encouragement and suggestions for items were coming my way during the day.   

The plan was to batch sew multiples of one item before moving onto the next but that plan has been slightly altered along the way as I found that sometimes it was easier to get a few items to a certain stage, then iron them all and move onto the next stage but of course that does not produce too many finishes so as a consequence I do not have anything to show you from my Saturday sewing marathon with the girls.  Hopefully that situation will change before the week is out.    

Since Saturday the rain has steadily increased.   The view from our bedroom window.

The rain has been non stop and some parts of Queensland and Northern NSW have had the worst floods in history.     Unfortunately the rain depression is heading south and it is expected to hit Sydney within the next day or two.     I guess the view from the window will be the same for the next few days. 

Looking on the bright side  - I can spend as much time as I like in the sewing room and seeing that the RSC challenge colour for March is yellow that will certainly brighten up anyone's grey day.   

My OMG for March will be to get all the items - hopefully - ticked off my to do list for the stall and then dive into the yellow scrap bin and make 3 yellow bibs to add to the red and aqua ones already made for Sri Lanka.  

Back soon and in the meantime

 Happy sewing all

It was great to see you and your sewing progress on Saturday. I hope the rain is not bad for you, it certainly is bad in Qld and northern NSW.

It was lots of fun sewing with everyone on zoom. Hopefully this predicted weather event isn't as bad as they're saying. Everything is already soooooo wet out there. Happy sewing x

Qld is happy to be rid of that rain depression - and it WAS very depressing as is the clean-up - sorry it had to go south to you guys.
I'm sure you are doing your projects in the most streamlined way that works for you - and I'm sure you will get it all done.
Enjoyed my brief time online - sorry I couldn't be there longer.

You may not have any finishes to share, but you still made lots of progress on Saturday. Yellow will be nice and cheerful for RSC. Stay dry.
