This is my first “school” holiday and even the housework isn’t getting done!

But today, whilst the Chaos Monsters had a little nap I decided to go into the sewing loft and see what took my fancy.

With the black trousers done and awaiting photos, I have the fabric for two Sorbetto tops, a dress and a Burda shirt washed and ready to go.  But I didn’t feel in the right place for fitting and the like, so I pulled out the Gardener’s Journal quilt fabric.

I’ve just checked and I haven’t laid hands on this since the 15th June!


Especially as I’m off to the Festival of Quilts on Saturday.

So I set too and by the time Button had woken up and drawn several pictures, block A was finished, albeit somewhat wonkily. (Is that a real word?  I suspect not!) I sewed slowly but I think straight and accurate piecing is a skill that needs practice.

That said, it was just the palate cleanser I needed.

I think I’m going to dig out the dress pattern and start tracing it off ready for fitting.
