On the weekend

some chatting and stitching happened, we had a catch up with a few of the Scrub Stitching girls, organised by Chooky
I didn't get a screen photo until some of the girls had said goodbye, but here we are chatting away.
I stitched some hearts while on the laptop, it was lovely to have the catch up.

the hearts got mixed in with some I did in the evening, you wouldn't think purple was my favourite colour would you!!

The next night a few more were done, I am using any scrappy bits of mainly batik I find around in the fabric stash.

The One Block Wednesday blocks have been joined together, I decided to do a random join and was very happy until I went to iron it and found two identical blocks next to each other. So some unsewing had to happen, followed by some more sewing!! Very happy with it now. Today I have joined what I thought was enough fabric for the backing, to another piece of fabric so I definitely have enough for the backing. Need to cut wadding now and then it is ready to be quilted.

I went to get some sticky fruit slice this morning....the two legged mice have been before me.

I spent and hour and a half here yesterday afternoon and another hour this morning...puzzle finished!! One piece missing again, black trousers right hand side for those who have to find it!! I knew there was one missing, this came from Jo, so she had noted it on the box. 
I have a collection of random photos saved from albums of my Dad's, so that might be the next thing to be doing on the dining table, sorting and putting into a scrap book.
Today I made another Anthology block
This one was paper pieced, so I managed to get it the right size!!
I am off to join some wadding pieces together for a little quilt.
Happy stitching.

It was so good to catch up again as I'm getting to know you better..
Loving those Hearts and it will be great to see them all sewn together..
Sew annoying when you discover two identical blocks together but lucky you weren't quilting it..
Oh a big mouse got to the slice...LOL.
Great puzzle and nice to know about the missing piece from Jo.

Glad you were able to have a catch up with your mates. You have doe loads of wonderful sewing again, love those hearts. The anthology block has wonderful colours. Sorry about those 2 legged mice eating your sticky slices away, it wasn't me! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

Wow! You have so many hearts! When I was a child, my mom used to say “two legged mice”. I haven’t heard that in awhile. You brought a smile to my face. The puzzle looks really fun.

Julierose said...

You have a lot of those lovely hearts made;)))
Puzzles always seem to have a piece that has gone AWOL somehow!!
I like your One Block piece a lot...great color combos...nice work
Stay safe ~ ~ ~ waving from afar Julierose

You had a great weekend. It was fun catching up with everyone on Saturday afternoon. The jigsaw looks like a fun one to do and you are making great progress with your hearts. You were much more productive than me while we chatted. You may have to show that two legged mouse how to bake the slice.

Your "one block Wednesday" quilt looks fabulous. And you've kept busy on lots of other projects too. Great work Sue... xox

Julie said...

We are so lucky with our technology to be able to stay in contact Sue. Your hearts are looking beautiful! I have the same two legged mice in my house!!

Lin said...

Pretty purple hearts and your one block quilt looks great - nice to have it all together I'm sure. Shame about the cake! xx

Very interesting post. Your blog has very cool content <3
I am following you and invite you to me

Fiona said...

great to have the zoom chats and messenger chats etc to keep us in touch.... I do love the look of your one block quilt.... now I am keen to put mine together...

Preeti said...

I am sure that you love your two-legged mice. I hate when they leave the empty tray for the mom to clean :-(
The puzzle must have been addictive fun. The missing piece makes me smile.
I'd love to see the completed top for the One-Block Wednesday blocks. Hope you are staying safe.

Michelle Ridgway said...

Lovely catch up for you all. That is a very pretty bundle of hearts there. Your quilt is beautiful! When it comes to home baking I am usually the little mouse lol!

Angie said...

What a fun puzzle. I think I would be grinning at it like an idiot the whole time - now that's what I call entertainment! (It doesn't take much to amuse me, can you tell?)

Raewyn said...

It was nice to catch up the other weekend wasn't it? Your hearts are looking gorgeous - and well done on the OBW top - wow - it's stunning :-) Fun puzzle too.
