When I'm at home, Saturday's are the day I catch up on YouTube sewing - Midnight Quilter, Bonnie Hunter - QuiltCam, Missouri Quilts and Fibrecast - and cruising vlogs, currently my favourite is Sea Cruisers. After I'm YouTubed out I watch Netflix. I do this while I am sewing and catching up on my blogs. It is a ME day!! It was a habit I got into when working, as one needs at least one day a week to de-stress. Now that I'm not working it is still good to have a day to myself doing what I want (not what I should be doing). Today on Bonnie's it was really interesting, she was talking about the leader / enders quilt - REMINDER, I must sew all those blocks together - and so many other interesting and basic things. I really enjoyed it - even though Bonnie was having a bad day. It made me think about how Bonnie is 'sew' accurate (and I try to be) and Midnight Quilter is 'sew' stress free. So I aim for perfection, but certainly don't stress if the blocks aren't perfect. It is all about being happy.
I'm now in the fourth month of the fussy cutting hexie challenge, and I am learning a lot about fussy cutting. The theme for March was 'animals' - see above, and this month it is Spring. I guess the challenge is coming from the northern hemisphere 😇. While posting on Instagram I came across another hexie sewalong using 'new' hexies - so of course another challenge especially while traveling. The New Hexagon Book is an English paper piecing book with 52 different or new hexies. So here we go:
I'm not sure how I will put them together, or if I will make place mats, maybe? Any ideas will be gratefully accepted 💟.
