This week has wizzed past as they all seem to at the moment.
I have been keeping busy.
I laid my patchwork trees out on the floor and faffed around with them for a long time, took photos and swapped blocks around until I was happy. The dog was not helpful as he kept walking over them and messing up the pattern.
I numbered the columns and used pointers so I sewed the right side.
Using Minty, my 1967 Singer Featherweight, I sewed the blocks into columns and pressed the seams to one side. I was surprised how long pressing took.
I then sewed the rows, right to left and the next row left to right so it didn't distort too much. I pinned the corner seams to get them lined up, I'm pleased with the result. More seam pressing.
Here is the completed quilt top.
.........I had completely forgotten about Miss Clicky's kitchen curtains, as I had tidied the fabric away in the craft room (out of sight, out of mind.) You might remember that I offered to make curtains and blinds for Miss Clicky and her hubby's house (I must think of a name for him), I completed the blinds in February. I'm back on the curtains and with the lockdown easing hopefully I will be able to deliver them when finished.
Mr Clicky's jumper continues on and is my tv knitting.
I am absolutely loving this project. The Jamieson and Smith's yarn real pleasure to use. The yolk is taking some time with 400 odd stitches and the widest part and some rows have all three colours of yarn. The plus side? My continental knitting is having lots of practise.
It's a bank holiday tomorrow and would it normally be half term for schools, but no holidays as lockdown continues. Strange times.
Hope you're keeping safe and busy.
Bye for now............Clicky Needles.
