Zoom Australia Day....

A little slow on the blogging front...... But I had another wonderful day zoom sewing....... Australia Day up bright and early to link up with the Canadians and Americans on the other side of the world catching them in their afternoon....... New Zealanders are often early too being a few hours ahead of me..... Sylvia in Germany is just in all sorts of hours...... Often going to bed and popping back up again to rejoin us....... 
Last zoom a few of us were discussing our zoom sewing project....... Some have been working on the same project each time. I have mostly worked on blue lanterns except for the last zoom. At that time I did decide I would try and make this epp project my zoom project.....It's mostly what I have sewn on zoom days......so that's where I started adding to the three pieces below.......... 
I added another 8 blocks to this section........ sorry no photo of that........but.....
This is what the quilt was up to prior to starting the sewing day...... 
This is what it looked like after...... I added that section I was working on in the morning to the bottom left side.....I also had another section together from previous sewing days and added it to the top right........ I can see heaps of progress on this quilt due to zoom sewing days.......well they are marathon sewing sessions usually for me........this time I sewed for 12 hrs......thanks for the encouragement girls.......
The only problem with the day is my power failed for a few hours...... But the girls hung in there and I finally got back on.......too dam hot a day for no power but nothing I could do about it...... 
Anyway it was another wonderful day connecting with my blog buddies.......
Til next time.....Stay safe........
Catch you later..........
Chookyblue........
PS be brave and join us next time.......

  12. It’s great to see how your lanterns have grown over the last few months. It was fun to pop in, if only for a little while. I agree with Denise, we need a catchy name.
