Happy day

I wrote myself a list this morning, of things I needed/wanted to do, and I am pleased to say it is all done, well if you can swap vacuuming for dusting, then it is done!! Might move the dust about tomorrow.
I have finished the sewing on the clamshells...yay!!! Now it is ready to get a backing sorted.
I had found several places where I must have snipped the applique thread on the clamshells while I was removing the gathering thread, hopefully they are all repaired now.

I made the teeny tiny hexies for the centre of Doing the Rounds, now I need to figure out how to get the card out of the fabric!


I have two of the shapes appliqued down so far

another heap of circles have been prepared ready to applique.
I have also done lots of washing today, is the perfect drying day, warm sunny and breezy, also cut the deadheads off the agapanthus plants...all in all a good day.
Happy sewing.

I do love your clamshells quilt.... so beautiful.... and your new one is going to be gorgeous... lovely colours...
Have you got a number of circle blocks you are going to do? You've got a goodly sum of them already.. Dust will still be there anytime.... it's good at waiting patiently

Okay smartie pants, how did you manage to baste those little hexies? Every time I get my little ones out I can't work out how to wrap the fabric around such a small area. They look lovely! It is coming together nicely.

Lost my first comment..... Glad the clam shells is stitched down...... Just slips something between the paper and the fabric.....
