15 Minute - This and That and More of the Same

Mo went back to school this morning.  She doesn't know if she will go everyday but we will see how things pan out.  The federal government wants kids to go back to school, but the school has told us for students only to return if they have already indicated they were going to do so.  Hopefully when she get home she will know more about what they expect.  She works fine independently so I'll leave it up to her.

Reminder I will only been keeping Block 10 of Springtime Romance for free until the end of the month so if you have been following along get you download done and it comes  down on Wednesday.

Another big batch of tomato relish this week.  I've told the girls to do a drive by and they can have a couple of jars as I am never going to eat all this.

On the stitching front this week was a 7 out of 7, though it wasn't all stitching a couple of days all I did was crochet, I just haven't enjoyed the block from Green Tea and Sweet Beans that I as working on or maybe I just needed a break.  Will get back to it this week though as I am itching to start a new appliqué project.

I worked on the centre design for this new quilt the centre will be on a piece of linen.  The design is from one of my Blackbird Design books, the original design is quite large I only increased it to half the finished size to make it fit into what I want to do.  This one is From Where the Wind Blows, I have also picked a couple of designs from Birds of a Feather that I want to use to go around the outside of the oval shape.  It will be nice to just appliqué for the fun of it for a bit and not worry about creating a block or instructions.  I might even rest the BOM this year.  

I signed up for a Sewing Club project of the month which is cross stitch using Blackbird Designs Sewing Club Book.  The first project arrived today with just about every thing you need to create the first project.  I just have to wait for the arrival of a magnifier (which or ordered a couple of weeks ago and appears to be lost in transit).  I'm due for new glasses but COVID put a stop to that.

So how are you going this week, are you filling your time with stitching and other things head to Kate's to see how everyone is travelling.

Hope back to school for Mo went OK. It will be fall at the earliest before schools allow the kids back on campus. You've got some fun new projects to play with. Hope this week is as good on the stitching front.
