First things first, I survived the move and am slowly settling in. Second, and very bothersome, thing, we’re still without internet and phone. Grrrrr. So annoying. I am, however, on a short visit with my sister to celebrate her 25th birthday until Sunday noon so can work a little on the blog, schedule a precious few posts, and catch up a little with your sewing lives. I'd love to hear from you and will answer any comments/mails before I'm off again. Third, I’m forced to experiment not only with the changed light settings
of a basement flat - 4thstorey before! – but a new, if old, camera, too. So please bear with me.
Here’s a “before” look at my corner of the “office”. It’s already been cleaned up a bit but not yet looking quite “after”.
I’m not actually sewing at the desk as I still prefer our dining table in the living room. Yep, this means I’ve been sewing! For one, I’ve basted all my hexies, thus, turning my box into a magical hexagon bon bon land. These stacked hexies will be made into 38 flowers!
Even more exciting, I’ve spent a good amount of time hand quilting the Viking baby quilt and finished it a day before the arrival of the little one was announced two weeks ago. It was a daunting enterprise at first, hand quilting that is, but I’m even more in love with this quilt because of the details now. Here’s a sneak peak, more to follow in a separate post.
