Yes, that is right, Lazy Bums gathered at their sewing machines for an extended 24 hour period, and sewed. We all sewed different projects, but chatted in between, and made great progress.
I had planned for, well since ages, to do a scrappy trip around the world. So, this retreat was the perfect impetus to get it started.
Three blocks are very little use to anyone, so I set to, and managed to make four more.
My sewing was complicated, first by the fact that I had had to work that morning- a sad incursion into sewing time- and further by the fact that we had invited friends to join us for a meal that evening...
So, I sewed, then peeled some spuds, sewed, then peeled a carrot.. or two.. sewed and made some stuffing for the chicken... and sewed again.
And I had just finished my seventh block, when my friends turned up!
Another shock to the system, He actually admired these blocks! without prompting! Now, that is quite something!
The next four blocks..
And today, I just thought, between this, that and the other- I could make a couple more?
But my bobbin ran out- so I refilled it
Disaster! Why, oh why, and actually how does the bobbin do this??
a long time was spent trying to sort this one out. Eventually, I snipped it all off, and started again...
so if I put my mind to it, I might be able to get a whole quilt top's worth in a day! If I did not have other life essentials to get on with... like working,eating and sleeping..
meantime- I love them!
