It was time to sew with friends around the world again last night - and relieve the tedium of yet another football match even though it was England v Scotland. For those of you down under, its Euro 2020 (yes I know, it's a year late) and there seems to be three matches a day at the moment. Anyway, to more interesting things.
Friday Night Sew In and thank you Wendy for organising our get together - please pop over to Wendy's blog here to see who else joined in and what they got up to.
In the afternoon I spent an hour working on my tablecloth and listening to this podcast about positive language and creativity. It's the latest in a series of podcasts about creativity and very interesting.
My tablecloth has spent the last week or so on the back of the sofa as it has been too hot to work on it, but yesterday, following a few storms, was a cooler day so it was good to get back in the swing of quilting.
In the evening I was working on a new project. I am very fortunate to have 'inherited' the patterns for Field Journal from Fiona. I have so enjoyed watching her work on these beautiful designs over the last year. So last night I worked on this pretty lavender design.
I am not a fan of satin stitch so, being positive, I decided to get this one out of the way early on! My first instinct was to make these little designs into a book but when I realised how many there are I thought my book would be a little unweildy! So my next plan was to make them into finished hexagons which I can then sew together - no idea what the finished size will be but who cares - the fun is in the doing. So here is my first hexagon - the one I finished off a couple of times to get the sizing right!
