Sewing Sunday

I have had a productive day today...I think the overcast weather makes me more likely to sew...I would rather sit and read outside if it is sunny
..some interesting clouds happening here this morning ......

I made a zipper pouch this morning....read the instructions twice, measured, sewed and cut...and then realised I had done it the wrong way!!! Oh dear....oh well instead of a pouch that sits up and makes it easy to look inside I have one that wont!! Lol!! At least I got the fabric the right way up I suppose!!

I also made block 7 for the Charm Square Sampler Quilt...only two more to go....then comes the serious stuff....gulp!!

I have launched into another Aussie Hero quilt, the request was for blue, green, yellow, meditation and beach...I snuck some yellow on the sides.....and am planning to do lots of free range quilting along the black lines....fingers crossed it is liked.....

.....the supervisor, of course is near by for when he is needed!! I used the outdoor table to make the sandwich today and got it finished just before the rain started!
I am off to Eve's place tomorrow afternoon and then we head for Mount Gambier....then on to Kingston and the big lobster!! A few days of tiki touring around.
Happy sewing.

I hope the weather is better where you are headed for than here. My muscles are aching with the change. Love that block. So vibrant! The meditation quilt looks awesome. Great idea basting outside but probably best when warm and sunny rather than freezing your butt off hehehe. Have a great trip.

Your pouch looks good in the photo even if it doesn't sit up! I love that block with the rainbow of colours.

That was some quilt challenge but you nailed it. Love the multi colour block and as for the bag no one will ever know you did something wrong.... unless you tell them ;) Have fun on your road trip..... xxx
