A Better Day...

Tuesday was good; there was sunshine, so much sunshine that I came home to sew and had to wear sunglasses!

That'll be five more #economyblockalongs to add to the collection....


I am now at 30 out of 42...


I was planning on getting the blocks finished and top made tomorrow, but I have some new fabrics to play with on a secretive mission, so I may well start something new instead; actually I already started it, and I think I want to spend a little time cutting, and a lot of time hand stitching on the sofa; my day off, so why not!?

And the old first aid badge was removed, and level two stitched on in time, as promised...


... and dear son just got home with 2 more!!  But one was for becoming a Seconder, so proud Mummy doesn't mind xxx

Edited to add - just spotted that I won Sheila's mega-pinnie in the FAL Q4 prize draw - a better day indeed!

  5. Love the idea of you sewing in your sunnies! Your economy blocks look fab, can't wait to see the finished project. I am a whopping 10 blocks in, so still a teeny weeny bit to go...

  11. Well done dear son! I never managed more than a seconder in Brownies before trying to customise the uniform. My Dad said 'well if you're not going to wear the proper uniform then you don't go anymore'. And I didn't. Lovely blocks as usual, missus. Let's hope today is even sunnier :)

  12. why was that no matter how much I could sew and no matter how many badges my kids got, I could never sew them on straight? Love the look of your economy squares.
