Getting my 'Fun Room' organized on this side of the Pond has been slower going than I anticipated, but I've finally managed a couple of days of sewing, mostly getting reacquainted with my Janome... which is not as much fun to sew on as my Brother:) I already know I'm going to miss my wavy stitch... back to not so straight stitching I guess ;)
First through the machine is the backing for Fox Kits, nothing fancy, just basic piecing of the fabrics I brought over from Canada. FINLEY was done before I came over and I worked around it. This is my April goal for ALYoF so I was glad to get the backing done. I still need some 505 Basting Spray so I can get the quilting done. Hopefully I'll get it this weekend. With a week in Spain coming up, I'll be pushing it to meet my goal.
I got the April block for Pat Sloan's Vacation BOM done. Penny Arcade turned out nice. It was one of two BOMs I was able to cram into my suitcase. The others had to stay behind, with soooooo much else. I had lots packed, but had to remove most of it because of weight restrictions. My carry on was a struggle as it was.
And I've been working on log cabin style pattern called Scrappy Steps from the March 2015 issue of popular patchwork, which was waiting for me when I arrived (along with January, February and Aprils) :) I'm using a Jelly Roll for this, so zipping along nicely. I'm hoping to make a couple of play mats for D's great nieces.
Linking up with Let's Bee Social #64 at Sew Fresh Quilts. Pop on over and see what others are up to this week :)
