HAPPY NEW YEAR – and welcome to 2016 !!
As I was a having a cup of coffee with my charming husband this morning, I was contemplating the year 2016. Mr Benson headed back to work today after a lovely 12 days off with us, and this signalled to me, the Christmas season has definitely finished and life returns to “chaotic normal” for us. There are LOADS of adventures planned for the kids to enjoy before they head back to school in four weeks time….. and here at Sewn by Leanne it’s a matter of working around the kids timetable for another 4 weeks.
Then I quickly checked any emails that had come in over the weekend – and saw one from the Gnome Angel. I instantly thought – Oh no !! I haven’t caught up on all the Farmers Wife 1930s Quilt Blocks yet ! And another block is already ready to be presented tomorrow – Ahhh ! Well if I didn’t catch up today – I could see the light at the end of tunnel moving further away……
Cat, Malvina, Priscilla, Daffodil, Ava and Autumn were all placed in by WIP pile to do over the Christmas break. Life was far too frantic there for a while !!
This morning I was able to do 4 – Cat, Malvina, Priscilla and Daffodil. Ava and Autumn will be completed tonight.
Daffodil – 26
I found this one a joy to create.
Cat – 22
Love the effect of the Cat’s eyes !! I like the larger squares for the chance to fussy cut 😉
Malvina – 55
Love the colour effect of this dainty block !!
Priscilla – 86
Oh Priscilla !! I do like you now that I have finished you, but alas your VERY obtuse Y seams were tricky. Lol !!
Together these 4 look very smart !!
Once I have completed Ava and Autumn I will take a photo of the first 3 months completed. I am excited to see what the array will look like !! I can’t imagine how the Gnome Angel feels with the enormity of this project but when I read her email this morning and noted that there is still another 9 months to go – I was feeling Oh dear !! Now that I am only two behind, I as breathing normally again and can face my email inbox again !!
Until tomorrow when I will reveal Ava and Autumn and the whole collection !!
