Catching up in the sewing room

Time has been spent in the sewing room this week making a start on some more childrens quilts.   Some quilting happened.    As it is only a top and backing with no wadding in between I can just use a normal sewing foot instead of the walking foot.    

Then came the binding

Then a finish

Pinning of another top that has been sitting around

More cutting

And a bit more cutting

That will be it for me in the sewing room until the end of next week as Miss M is coming to stay with us for the first week of the school holidays.  We are hoping that the rain has long gone as she has big plans to go to the beach, the zoo, a ferry ride and maybe a picnic.  

This months book club read is.  

One member of the group has already read the book and found it heavy going.   I am curious to find out why she thought so and look forward to making a start.   

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Sounds like Miss M has her visit all figured out. Enjoy her!

Were you sewing in the dark, Karen? I thought of that because you were a little bit in the dark on zoom today too until you turned them on.

A start and a finish so close together. I need to do projects like that. Congratulations.
