Because I am happy.....

Hee hee!! I spent lots of time today unpacking tubs and finding homes for things but I had promised myself I would do some sewing today as well...my mission today was to do the 9th and final block of the Charm Square Sampler Quilt...'cos how long can one block take to make?? Well quite a while I found out when I sewed along happily and then had to unsew!! mmmmmm...but...
Ta da!!! Number 9 block finished......then I laid out the blocks on the desk..not really enough room but they looked good...
I am feeling pretty pleased with myself for getting the blocks done, so while feeling happy I decided to start on the sashings...even managed to put in some corner stones (new experience for me!!) only a couple of not quite right corners...
..and now this is as far as I got..have to stop now as black is hard to see at night and the light in the sewing room isn't too good..one more sashing strip to make and then the next row of blocks goes on...I have been sewing along with Shannon at Modern Tradition Quilts..all the block instructions are on her blog. I found her tutorials easy to follow. I am so happy!!! Hopefully I will do some more tomorrow.
Happy sewing.

Gosh that looks really stunning - love the colour combinations you have used. I find I cant make the gollies at night also because the black plays havoc with my eyesight.
