I last did an update on my Lucy quilt top a couple of weeks ago, on 11th September. There is a date that will live in infamy for a loooong time, so much in our world changed on that day.
And here she is today. I thought rather than clambering about pegging or pinning her over the top of the quilt in my hallway, I would spread her out on top of our bed.
Please do excuse the mess, I have way more interesting things to do than housework!
Though you can't see it in the above photo, I have turned another corner. I took a corner photo last time, but it wasn't quite complete.
This is how a finished corner should look. This was done in the same way that Lucy Boston made her corners. As you can also see I have used the same filler shapes that Lucy used along the edges of the border blocks, so a nice straight edge to work to. I still did not decide if I will stop here as Lucy did, or if I will add a border or two, just to make it a little bigger.
And while I was photographing the edges, this block caught my eye.
Unlike some, I didn't do much in the way of fussy cutting, but I think I got this one just right.
It's been a strange week, my poor Tony was made redundant again and has been home with me all week. It's been difficult to settle to anything, I've done no sewing and almost no study.
I did submit two completed papers and their completed observations, half of which is back and marked as complete and achieved.
Tony is spending a lot of time on the job search websites and talking to employment agencies. More news when we have it. Meanwhile my days are somewhat disrupted.
We have also spent some time in the garden , a little late this year, getting things cleaned up and planted.
I'm off work next week as I have been summoned for jury service again.
I hope I'm not selected and maybe, just maybe I'll get some sewing done.
A lot of my spare time has been spent on Pinterest.
I'm being bombarded with ideas for crochet temperature blankets.
