The first appliqué row is now finished and I have started on the next one which is called the Village. This one is coming together quite quickly so I should have it finished by the end of the month with any luck.
I have also been working on the Pretty Circle Game BOM by Jen Kingwell and for once I am keeping up with the blocks. Made a pact with the girls that we would keep up to date because we are all notoriously bad for collecting bom and kits and not doing them see my destash as an example.
I got back to Delilah which I collected as a Template of the Month and didn't get the fabric. I was initially going to sew the blocks by machine but have decided that I would probably get more done if I did it by hand. So I have cut the 2 blocks from Month 1 and will hopefully get them stitched in the next couple of weeks and go on from there.
So I can say I have been very good and keeping up so far this year so far.
I got myself a couple of Birthday presents. I ruler quilting foot for my machine and the new rulers by Angela Waters. I haven't had a chance to play yet but maybe this weekend it might happen.
We have booked a sewing retreat with the girls to celebrate my 50th and my friends 60th. She is 60 in July so we are going in May (which is the only time I can get time off work). Looking forward to a week of sewing, eating, drinking and winding down with good friends. Who know if we have too much fun we might make it a yearly occurrence. Sounds good to me.
