I have not done a lot of sewing or blogging this month, partially due to the above, but also a few nasty incidents in my personal life that I have had to deal with. I wont go into it in any real detail, but my daughter who is 26 and lives alone met a man and started a relationship (only 6 weeks ago) , only to realise that he was not who he led her to believe and things got nasty. The chap in question was on parole, and thankfully today he is back in police custody. She is living at home with us again until she feels like she can comfortably go back on her own. A huge lesson to learn for her, and a worrying time for us. I am sure we can put it all behind us.
My white rabbit list I fear will not even begin to be completed this month due to the lack of sewing machine. Readers of my blog would know that I did borrow my MIL's old Phaff, but without a 1/4 inch foot, and no blanket stitch it was hard to do much more than just some quilt borders. I did manage to make my 12 and Christmas inch block swaps, but they were not as good as I would normally like them to be.
Today, to put my Bernina back into action I have done three more FWQA blocks, Taking a fresh look at Four winds (which was done on the Pfaff,), I can see that its not great so I may well have to redo that block. But here they are in any case:
|38. Four winds|
|40. Friendship block|
