So, what's happening ...?

Not a lot is the easy answer to the above question. I'm not good at going out and doing things when it's so cold (for me!) outside. My fingers go purple and I lose the feeling in the tips so I tend to stay indoors. We did, however, go round to celebrate my neice Faith's 16th birthday on Sunday. Her birthday was on Saturday but the birthday tea was on Sunday.

Have to have a couple of Tyler as well :)
Too cute!!
Other than that, I've been in the mood for sewing lately but wasn't sure what I wanted to make. I have a small stash of fat quarters and a few larger pieces of material which I decided to go through today. This is what I ended up doing this afternoon ...
I cut out over 100 4.5" squares and then sat playing with them to decide how they would line up. I think I'm fairly happy with this final layout and have now made little piles of each row and numbered them so I know where they go. Now I've just got to sew them all together =) (once I've found all my sewing supplies - some of which are still in boxes from when we moved). I'm looking forward to doing this and seeing it finished.
What are you up to this week???

  1. Well, you are a busy, busy, bee! I love the layout for your patchwork and I always did like those colours.
    I also think that my grandchildren are lovely, so thank you for the photographs.
    What have I been doing? Changing round the furniture in the spare room where I have my computer so that the sun no longer shines into my eyes. It is still in a bit of a mess but I'm getting there. xxx
