a good weekend

I am a very lucky girl. I got to spend my birthday doing what I love- sewing!!- while my beautiful daughter and her boyfriend cooked me up a delicious dinner.

I also talked to my oldest son who lives interstate, and received some lovely gifts. Very spoilt!

bday1Having some concentrated time at the sewing machine meant I got this block finished:

This is the LAST block in the Lollipop Trees Quilt YAY!!! It was one that I did using a machine-applique method, and I actually started it very early in the process. I thought I would maybe use that method on quite a few blocks but only actually did this one. As it turned out, doing the rest by hand was more convenient because I could take them with me whenever I wanted a portable hand-sewn project or in front of the television at night.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I was interested to try the machine applique and I took some notes anlog the way on the tips I found, so I might write a post on that sometime this week.
