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.

And have made a start.

Slowly does it

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.

Yippee a finish!

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!
