Productive Weekend

I have been very lucky indeed ... a peaceful and productive weekend!

Yesterday while doing some serious blog catching up, I came across a 'Stay at Home Robin' on Kate's blog. Today I get to share my July block ... not just one but two of them. I decided to try and make two blocks each month so that I can have two finished wall hangings at the end of the journey.

Considering I've managed to piece the two blocks only the day after deciding to take part, I'm hoping that's a good sign that I can manage this twin project.

Remember this poor little log cabin block? Well actually there's 36 of them 14 1/2" x 14 1/2" and they recently came out of storage and are turning into .....

....... PAIRS! The front seems are machine sewn, the wadding whip stitched and the backing stitched by hand.

I have plenty of hand sewing to keep my hands busy at night.


  1. Hi Narelle, thanks for the comment on my blog. Looks like you have a good start for the SAHR too! I did two blocks as well but I'm only following with the one really. We'll see!
