It's not out of choice, I've not lost my mojo, believe me. You see, I've been away on secret women's business.
I've been in hospital and I'm recovering from an operation. I'm mending slowly but it may take a couple of weeks.
I did get a bit of applique prepped and all ready to have sit and sew sessions. The only advantage to being laid up is that I'm exempt from housework, cooking and other chores and I get to be waited on.
The block prepped above is for the Mary Mannakee. I made a freezer paper template and left "bridges" to connect the two sections so that I could use one piece of the red and do it by using the cutaway method which I thought would be easier than doing two separate pieces.
Last week, I whipped up another one of these fabric boxes to hold bits and pieces while I work, I really like them as holders for all sorts of things.
I'm also renewing my love affair with these petite basket blocks for short stitching sessions. I missed doing these so now I'm back to it, I'm really enjoying the fact that I can just pick one up and have a stitching fix. I have enough of these prepped to last me a wee while.
I was really hoping to have the second border all done for the Princess Feather quilt but I still have some more circles to add which may have to wait. Go see Ann's, she has attached two borders to hers already and it looks amazing.
