November Schnibble

Last Tuesday I decided to plan a new project for my day of sewing with Chez Soi. The one project I wanted to work on needed some working out of measurements. It has been a couple of months since I participated in the Year of Schnibbles hosted by Sinta and Sherri. I quickly purchased the pdf pattern, printed it off, dug out two charm packs of Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille, along with some scraps of white on white left over from backing a quilt. I was ready to go. Unfortunately Lizzie had a cold and decided Wednesday was the day she'd stay at home. So I sewed half square triangles alone in the kitchen. 160 of them plus a few extra for luck.

Then to trim them all. Not something I can do at one sitting so I trimmed a few and sewed a few stars together and then trimmed some more. Lizzie went back to school on Thursday but I was distracted by the Sirens WI AGM on Thursday evening so ploughed through the paperwork for that and got myself ready for my last AGM as president.

Fast forward through days of chest infection and cold to today when I have finishing sewing it together ready to quilt whenever I feel better. I had hoped to feel better today but I actually feel worse. So no Chez Soi quilt group again tomorrow. I don't want to pass on my germs.

So it's now ready to quilt and I think I'll use some more numbers fabric from Ikea as backing and hope to quilt it up ready for next Wednesday when I can sew on the binding at my quilt group. Then I'll take a better photo.
