At the start of the week I was keeping up to date with my email in-tray. Then I got busy watering the garden and the allotment as well as allowing myself to be driven by a plan to push on with a couple more projects in my sewing room. I did put the final stitches in the binding of the remaining secret sewing project 🙂 The other secret sewing project got the big reveal in this post.

Weekend Projects. As I had to rearrange my sewing room to open out the gate-leg table to use as a surface for basting the small quilt I’m making I decided to take a leaf out of Laura’s book, basting a second quilt while the table was out. I have many more

How has your week been? On Friday we had a welcome change to our lock-down rut when we joined in with activities organised to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Neighbours in our Close rallied together to hold a doorstep tea party. Social distancing rules were observed as we decorated our houses with flags and bunting before moving tables and chairs into our front gardens. It was so cheering to see everyone, to chat and enjoy a complete change from the lock-down routine. I posted photos and some thoughts on VE Day in this post.

Have you made progress with any sewing projects through the past week? One of my secret sewing projects is finished and ready to be gifted – hopefully I’ll be able to share it with you very soon 🙂

I’m working on two secret sewing projects this weekend which doesn’t make for great ‘bring alongs’ but here goes… My first secret sewing project arrived home on Friday after a trip to long arm quilter Trudi Wood (on Instagram @trudi_wood). The quilting texture looks amazing! This quilt was just a bit too big for me to feel confident quilting it on my domestic machine and as it’s been made for a magazine I decided to hire Trudi’s skills. So glad I did!
