As you know, my progress on anything quilt and sewing related has been slowed considerably by the second and more intensive stage of my studies for work. Also plenty of extra shifts at work as my colleagues succumb to the virus that has so far left me alone. Those of us covering their absences are becoming tired and over worked. I did three extra shifts last week and have more rostered this week.
I was very happy, when on my one day off over the weekend, I discovered an invite from Chooky to zoom with her Chookshed Stitchers.
I had been very busy with domestics that had been neglected due to study and work so was more than happy to sit and sew for a while.
Poor Chooky has had the virus and is still coughing, so she muted her microphone and listened to the rest of us chattering as we all sewed. I didn't stay for the whole session as I still had more domestic duties to complete, but in the time I was there I made up some more of the edge blocks for Lucy Boston in Blue. Time I think to add a few more to the edge of the quilt, so that I have a better idea of how many more I might need.
Sunday I was off to work in the afternoon for one of those extra shifts, but not before I printed and cut out some of the new shapes I'll be needing for the edge treatments on Lucy.
These are just two of the four shapes required to complete the edges.
This morning I completed the biggest of the papers that are required for my stage two studies. I have gathered and submitted a bunch of evidence with it. Fingers crossed I get an achieved score and can put that one behind me. I had a look at the next paper and got myself all set up to begin work on that very soon. Not today though.
I may or may not make some progress of some sort with Lucy before work this afternoon or I may just make a cuppa and relax for a while.
Thanks for the invite Chooky and the discussions ladies. Always a great time and progress made when I spend time with you.
