It’s been rather nice to have the weekend at home so I could get some sewing done over the weekend. Not just the weekend, I should add, a little sewing has been taking place during the week days, as outings and appointments permitted. As much as we enjoy going away for weekend caravan club rallies, sometimes I just need some time at home!
Progress is coming along nicely on UFO number 1, the quilt I’m making for our caravan. I’ve finally stitched down all the applique flowers around the border. Just as well, as some of the fusing was coming adrift, and they were starting to wave at me instead of lying nice and secure. And I’ve tied off and sewn all the long threads in too, so that’s a job well done.

But wait – there’s more! I’m planning on adding a checkerboard border too, so have been sewing up lots of these little twosies. Luckily I had some strips all cut out and ready to stitch and slice.

Guess I’ll have to lay everything out and have a play around to see how it all looks together. It’s Monday tomorrow, so I’ll get to roll the dice again! It's always a surprise to see which number UFO I'll be working on for the next week.
