Stll Stitching Away
I had been busy hand stitching shapes, old fashioned paper piercings hexagons still.
My aim has been to stitch about one line a day which makes me feel Ive achieved something.
I'm on different medication to help with my nerves now, so sitting down to stitch small areas is the ideal thing.
As you can guess Ive not been on the computer much as the computer just kept breaking down and crashing, poor Jim had to repair the computer over and over again staying up late for absolutely hours to try and get it mended.
Ive just been pleased to sit in a corner hand stitching away as the computer got fixed with Mr Fix It.... so fingers crossed no more breakdowns.
The nights are getting darker now and its colder.
My nephew who is like my little brother is in Afghanistan on duty along with hundreds of other troops.
I worry about Jonathan, and everyone else out there as the situation is not good.
I also wish there was peace and resolution for everybody.
About a month ago I got a stitching magazine showing blocks done by village afghan women hand stitching and quilting blocks through a charity.
My heart ached for the ladies and for everybody else out there too.
As I'm writing the heavens have decided to throw it down with rain.
Jim took me to the Local Quilters Guild to get some more fabrics and here is a photo showing what I got. The jelly rolls will be cut into squares and sewn together with the sewing machine much later on of course towards another coat or waistcoat.
I hope everyone else is having quilting fun I will go round and catch up on everyone s blog.
Take care all.
By the way Beena if you are reading this I just cannot get through to your block as it keeps saying only by invites.
