Life is a little unsettled here at the mo. My husband has a new job, which although fantastic does have a fairly major down side. It is not in Finland but in the Netherlands (not that I have anything against the Netherlands). Anyway he moves there tomorrow and, for the moment at least, will commute back to Finland at the weekends. We still need to decide if or when the rest of us will join him. I had hoped our next crazy international move would be back to the UK but this might not be the case. Everything is still so up in the air, so many decisions to make. This is not helped by the fact that I am a worrier and am not too good with change.
Anyway, to help us all keep in contact during the week, hubbie has bought a new tablet computer. Obviously it needed a little cosy cover to protect it.
Well not quite but we did go above freezing for the first time in months this week! The sun has made things a lot more cheerful. It has also prompted me to try something a little more challenging. I have a plan.
It has been very slow on the sewing front around these parts. I have little inclination at the moment to be honest. I have however, managed a little hand sewing, finishing my second Rose Star.
I have no idea where I am going with these but I have cut out the pieces for another one. I am hoping they will inspire me to get back to the sewing machine and my impending bee blocks!
Linking up with the lovely Catherine at Knotted Cotton's linky party for Slow Bloggers. I certainly am slow at the minute.
I am on a bit of a mission at the moment to clear my backlog of unfinished projects. Last year I had a fairly bad case of startitous and very little was finished. I am trying not to let this happen this year. So this week I finished my Tetris quilt. I started it as part of Melissa at Happy Quilting 's QAL last summer.
my glamorous assistant had to battle quite hard with the wind!
I quilted it in a grid pattern, extending the grid into the purple border.
This was my first attempt at straight line quilting and I have to be honest I almost lost the will to finish it. I think I need to invest in a walking foot!
