During the holidays we have covered about 1500 miles (2200 km) and spent about 30 hours in total in the car so of course I had plenty of opportunities and time to hand sew! I progressed on a few EPP blocks which are almost ready to go. I worked on my Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Cross blocks for the I love Lucy Bee as I have some catch up to do. The bee started in November but I only received my templates early December and of course in the run up to Christmas I never started my blocks. So I have one red and white block nearly finished
one grey/black/taupe and yellow block in progress
I also finished my flowers for Chrys and these are heading to their new homes now.
And yesterday I picked up my belated Tea Cup blocks for Sew Euro Bee An for Di that have been waiting for a while. I am nearly done with them now, only the handles to add.
And although it was back to work, back to the routines, back to reality this week, I am very fortunate to have received a fantastic Christmas gift from my boss. I was so thrilled to open her beautifully wrapped package to find nothing less than the Liberty book of Home Sewing, a gorgeous book. I feel really touched as this is such a generous and thoughtful gift. A fantastic welcome back after the holidays I must say.
Linking to WOW, Needle and Thread Thursday, Whoop Whoop Friday.
And this Saturday I am planning to work on my Farmer's Wife blocks, will you join me?
