More playing ...

... does this woman ever do any housework/cooking/etc?  How come she gets to play so often?  That's what you're all wondering isn't it? Well the answer is that when you've got the builders in it's not worth doing things like dusting or vacuuming and it's best to plan meals for the slow cooker that do two days.

So, now we've sorted that out, let me show you what I've been doing. Yesterday was our monthly meeting of the Yorkshire Modern Quilt Group that both Scrappy and I belong to, and I decided to carry on with my ideas for the slice and insert block that I've been playing with lately.  This is what I came up with

By the way, they're not really all puckered, they're creased from where I had them all scrumpled up in my bag when I came home last night and I couldn't be bothered to iron them before taking the photos, sorry.  I'm not sure I like either of these versions, but I had to try them didn't I?

Oh, and Just in case you think I've given up on my free motion quilting, here's a little pile of sandwiches I've just made


  1. Housework is over rated anyway. :D

  2. I think you've made a wise choice to avoid the housework for the time being. It might be wise to consider having a house cleaner come in when construction is finished.

  3. these blocks are going to work well with the FMQ on, never mind the housework a little dust never harmed anyone.

  4. I've heard it said that no one will remember our clean houses after we are gone, but our quilts, on the other hand, will be treasures for generations.

  5. Cleaning-what is that, LOL! I didn't know we were supposed to do that-I mean afterall that is not fun! I love the orange a lot, I can imagine a quilt with that style of insert with each block another bright color!
