Final week of the 1 hour challenge

I have completed my last week of the Simply Needle & Thread 1 hour challenge. I've slipped a bit this week as I have clocked up 6.5 hours, just under the 1 hour per day average.

But I have managed a total of 28.5 hours for the month which is 7.125 hours per week, which is just over 1 hour per day on average - yay! I've met the challenge. Hmmm...need to treat myself.

This week I've gone back to my Morrell quilt to work on another hand pieced block. Lots of pieces in this one. I went to a 'Morell Sit and Sew Group' at Kaye's Needles and Pins in Warrandyte. It was great to get some handy hints from Kaye and to see different fabric and design choices - especially for the broderie perse blocks. If you need inspiration to finish your Morrell quilt you should come and join us.

Well, actually already treated myself with more fabric for the Morell quilt from The Stitchery in New Zealand which has sadly now closed.

The other hand sewing I did this week was to take up the hem on no. 1 son's new suit pants for a job interview (he got the job - Yay!!!)

Cheers, Carole
