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!

Excitement reigns in my sewing room! I have a new machine: she’s Julie the Juki, my dream sewing machine. She has settled into my portable Sewezi drop-bed table with a brand new perspex insert specially cut for her. Julie and I are getting acquainted.

I’ve spent a lot of time in my sewing room and not so much time at my laptop (blog posts are stacked up in my inbox :-O). I got a bit obsessed with the Dear Dottie project, the need to have a finish under my belt has been a driver for me. My plan to chain piece the final 17 blocks worked well and it was very satisfying to get all the blocks arranged on my design wall.
