What I've been up to:

  • I've spent a bit of time this past week working on my Block Lotto Blocks (more here).

  • Crumbs are coming along. I've made a few more since I posted a picture of all of them last week. This week is all about triangles.

  • Cut more squares for my green half-square triangles. It's become something I pick up when I feel like doing something mindless.

  • Challenge cushion: I've made good progress and have put in a zipper and quilted the side panels. I just need to sew it all together and create an inner for it. My goal is to do that this weekend. (Sorry no pictures yet.)

I've had an exhausting week and there's more to come. I find myself sewing at night as a way to de-clutter my head from the day's stresses. Hubby came up to bed the other night to find me cutting up crumbs and said I was a "sewing machine".

It's the end of term tomorrow and the beginning of a 2-week holiday for DD. She and DH are off to the mountain to ski while I stay home and work. But it does mean I should have time for some sewing too. Watch this space...


  1. Oh, I hope you get some sewing done, that is so relaxing and takes some of the stress away for me. Your crumb blocks are so nice. Love all the triangles. Have a great day~

  2. I sew at night too to de-stress. Your triangles are looking good. Log Cabins are the topic for this week.
