I’ve been working on UFO project number five this week, Secret Santa Sew-Along. First I had to finish stitching up those tiny nine patch block, some were already completed and some were just pinned together. I have to admit that I don’t really enjoy sewing such small pieces.
Christmas red nine patch blocks
These blocks then got stitched to either end of a cream rectangle. But…….I didn’t have enough, although I was sure I had made the correct number when I worked on this project before Christmas. Guess I just have to get cutting and stitching a few more.
Of course, you can guess what happened when I pinned these pieces onto the green blocks – I found those missing nine patches. Bother – but I guess I can use them later on the backing.
So this is where it is up to, and looking quite good, I think
I’ll leave this project here now, I've decided, and get back to it later. Need to start on my orange RSC blocks next, and finish stitching a gift and get it in the mail.
While I was outside taking the final photo, I spotted this little plant in matching colours bravely flowering away. This was a gift from my daughter Nicky for Easter 2018. After it had finished flowering last year I put it outside. Pot plants have to be tough to live here, I don’t do pampering, and this one is doing quite well for itself. I’m so pleased it’s still hanging on, and I didn’t kill it with neglect.
