Instead of sewing today I’ve been…

messing with my blog. I hope you like the new look ;)

The template design is from Cute N Cool Blog Stuff and the header I worked out in Paintshop Pro with a lot assistance from DH. That part was a lot of trial and error.

I have been sewing this past week. Here is another Dear Jane block I j-3completed. J-3 Rick’s Volleyball Net I Hand appliquéd the center and then paper pieced the outer corners. Fabric is Colonies Brown II by Windham.

Gloria's quilt 2I’ve also been working on Gloria’s Quilt. I have sewn the blocks together for the top (left)and then decided to make a pieced backing (below right). Backing G Quilt

I have worked on my Clamshell project this past week though I’m not much further forward. It was a case of 3 seams forward and one back… in otherwords I did a lot of un-sewing with it. I’m not so sure I like the fabrics that I’ve chosen to work with..

That’s all for now, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Happy Sewing, Hugs Elly
