It’s been quite a varied week on the sewing front around here, and given that we’ve been in single digit temperatures with lots of wind and rain, I’ve had plenty of time indoors to have a go at it!  I’ve been trying out dedicating one task to a certain day to try and avoid both time wasting and guilt tripping over the fact that I often think I should be doing something else instead!  Part of this has been allowing myself some time to play in exchange for some time dedicated to ‘other people’ sewing, so I spent Friday and Saturday’s sewing time on getting Part 1 of my My Small World quilt done (except for the main sky panel, still waiting in vain for that square die!).  Sunday was Quilt Now day for a good chunk of the day, and when I finished that project, I basted my Cotton + Steel mini ready for quilting, which I then got on with on Monday and Tuesday.  So far so good…  Although no progress on the grout, but I can live with that for a while ;o)

Finishes This Week:

I turned this lovely lot from Remnant Kings into my Quilt Now Issue 14 project:

In Progress This Week:

When you find yourself googling arrow aerodynamics so that you can work out how to quilt something, it may be time to call in the men in white coats, and yet I think it paid off, as I got the arrow sections of my mini quilted.  I’m also working through the other sections one weird chunk of quilting at a time!  This is pre-quilting, but the quilting is quite subtle:

This is where I’ve got to on My Small World.  I think this quilt may be ‘sunglasses optional’, but I’m having fun with it.  The sky will be different shades of Moda Grunge using the mainly white based ones (there’s surprisingly many of them!)

To Be Worked On This Week:

May’s Stitch Tease bee blocks (I was waiting on a Sizzix die in an effort to save time)
My mum’s birthday pressie

Hope you all have a great week!  Linking up with Lee and the gang:
