That meant I had to concentrate on the sewing. I am very good at procrastinating and having the main method of procrastination removed proves to make me far more productive. Scarily so. Not having to feed anyone else, or ferry anyone around, or provide entertainment also aids the productivity.
First I have the heart blocks for Caroline completed. I shall be posting these by the end of the week and fingers crossed that she has blocks pouring in from everyone now. It would be so nice if she got enough blocks to make several quilts.
Moving on swiftly, I made another reversible top. This one on a request of a friend for her daughter. I'll be paid. Exciting! I used two different weaves, a purple gingham and a soft green with a little bit of pink woven through as well. I don't think the green shows up as nice in the photos as it actually is. I will be handing this top over to its new owner on Friday.
Next I worked on the D9P that I found yesterday, but other than one little teaser photo I am not going to show you any more. I think I will save it for another post, for when I am on holiday. So this little bit of FMQ is it for now.

Time to face my worst enemy. The Zipper! I am going to make that long promised cushion. I said I would so time to

Sorry, this is a dull as dishwater post. Turns out I am really boring when left on my own too long, with no human interaction. Talking to the fish and swearing at the computer do not compensate for real live people. Have no fear, himself is on his way home as I type this. There is a bbq at the sailing club tonight. We're going. No idea what to expect. Hope there is talk other than sailing.
