This week, I again have more random than sewing :(
More bees than Bee blocks…
And, for some reason, most of the sunflowers are turning their backs on us this year.
And whenever I’ve been home lately I’ve been picking and stewing plums and making jam.
And picking, cutting and freezing beans.
The pumpkins are doing nicely.
The sweetcorn are growing their bizarre silky wigs.
And the courgettes are growing into marrows faster than I can keep up with up. All in all it’s a good year in the garden. I’m also harvesting carrots, cabbages, beetroot, onions and garlic and the apples, parsnips, winter greens and leeks are coming along well.
My sewing isn’t going so well and I’m very behind on replying to emails and blog reading but, unfortunately, you can’t eat quilts!
The wadding has arrived and the unicorns are ready to be turned into a flimsy but I’ve been umming and aaaring about how to quilt this. I’d like to shadow quilt the border strips with straight lines so I’m thinking it would save a LOT of sewing in of ends if I quilted this in sections and joined the pieces afterwards.
I’ve never done QAYG before so any tips or tricks would be welcome!
I’m off for another twelve hour shift, now (60 hours in a week :( – no wonder I’m not getting much else done!) but then I’ve got a week off so I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone’s sewing later :)
