Matching colours........

Wow what a difference today....... This year we have not had a day under 34........today it is only just 27......feels like heaven......
The Bird on the Border has flown in and we are sewing away...... Actually not a lot of sewing for me yet but lots of prep work to keep sewing my 10 mins each day.......
 A quick trip to the Home Patch and a sale saw me getting the setting triangle fabric for the churn dash quilt..(plus some other treasures)... So that is cut along with the corner stones.... Also cutting some bindings.......
But colour coordinated drinks is the go...... 
Catch you later.....

  1. Just make sure to leave plenty of time between consuming the liquid red & stitching the fabric red! What a relief for you to get a cooler day after all those hot ones.

  4. Good job, cutting is both the most important part and the most tedious one! Can't wait to see the finished top. Your 10 minutes is really working for you!

  20. You are achieving so much Chooky. I am trying to do 10 minutes in the sewing room each day too as I love the hand work on the couch so much that it is a chore to machine things.....and thus finish them. I have gone back to my Scandinavian Rose quilt and the last block is being pieced a little each day. Thanks for the motivation.
