Happy to report that my mojo is back in full flow this evening, and on a working Monday to boot!
I spent a happy half hour with a 6 year old assistant laying out mini charm squares of Honey Honey and Glamping to make another notebook cover, this time for my best school-mum-friend's birthday this week...
Trying to avoid the same pattern and/or same colour being next to each other made my little helper make the observation that now she knew why 'doing my quilting' took so long!
We saved our row selections, minus the freaky lady with my lovely pins, from this talented young lady, and am all set to sew it up on Wednesday - my day off, alone, no children, me, in the house for 6 hours, that's more time than I have had to myself than over the last 8 weeks combined!
So enthused I have spent this evening making improv 'blocks' for my Holiday Memories mini. I made 8 to add to the three I made as soon as we got back from Menorca.
It is shaping up nicely, I think. Very out of my comfort zone, but I have all the pieces pinned to a noticeboard now and it honestly looks like nothing I have ever attempted before. I am quite excited to get on with piecing the top together. I am trying to save it for a grand reveal at the end of the month - but I am sure that a few sneaky Instagram pics may become necessary, just to stop me exploding!
The weather may have gone, but I am back on form which of course means the emails and blog reading are backing up, hey ho; you win some, you lose some xxx
