Today is different as today I was determined to sew. I've decided I haven't gone off sewing. Like most things in my life in recent months the constant illness and fatigue (not to mention huge heaps of stress) has limited my life considerably. If I didn't have to work - even part time - I may have the energy left over for stuff like housework, sewing and any other social activity I normally indulge in. If you went through my diary you'd find a lot of crossing out of engagements made over the last few months.
The sewing I did today was to make the February block for Di in the HipBee's. Everyone waiting on blocks has been really kind and patient.
I really enjoyed making this block for Di. I'd never made flying geese before. I often go wrong with triangles but I didn't go wrong with these. Oh apart from when I sewed one of the rows wrong and had the geese following some of the others instead of flying away from. That only happened because I was being a smarty pants and didn't refer to a picture. It was only when I ironed it I thought: Hmmm that doesn't look as good as if they were the other way round. Ah yes that's because it's wrong.
The most difficult bit of doing this block was photographing it. So sorry for the bad pictures. It's not great light and I'm determined to post this off tomorrow so had to take pics now.
I'm also going to post the feather I made ages ago for Lucy. I'd not done a siggy block, so it's been sat on the side doing nobody any good. Tomorrow I'll be doing the X&+ blocks for February in Bee a Brit Stingy. Then I'll be almost caught up. And that is one good feeling!
