Loooong week

Well, I am glad to see the back of last week.  I worked a 49 hour week, on top of having Beccy at home not well for two days, Jenny with a severe chest infections resulting in steroids and antibiotics and a very long parents evening!  I get cross with my long weeks as I am just too tired to do anything by the time I get to the weekend. Hopefully the end of our ridiculously long working days is in sight!

I have managed to sit down for a couple of hours over the week and crack on with my ferris wheels

 I really like how this is turning out

I have also started making a quilt for the farleigh hospice sewing ladies.  I was given an old quilt cover to do something with. Its majorly uninspiring and I have had it for ages:

 I used some of the blue sheet from my stained quilt and turned out some blocks:

The quilt is not great to work from, it is very thin and the circles are not all the same size and shape, but once they are framed with the blue, I think they come out ok.  I will try and crack on with this too as it seems like an age since I did anything for this group!

Two weeks today and I will be in London: I sooooo can't wait. And the forecasters say that the weather will start to look up soon too - fingers crossed!


  1. Bring on London and be gone long work weeks.

  2. Oh boo to horrible long weeks and sick daughters. I do love your Ferris Wheels and good for you for creating something cool from that quilt cover!

  3. The blue certainly works with those circles! Great idea! Hope you have a less busy week next week. Jxo

  4. Sounds like a terrible week indeed!
    Hope this week is much better. Great progress on the Ferris wheels and the new blocks look interesting =D

  5. How tired must you be!!
    I spent tonight cutting the paper for my ferris wheel, it's going to be y holiday project so I am trying to be very organised about it.

  6. I think the framing of the circles makes them look modern and fun!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
