Kick Starting My Sewjo

Just to remind you that I have 4 FQs to give away this week during the Sew Mama Sew Give Away week. Find it here.

With a lot of work to do around our property my Sewjo has been a bit supressed. I was happily pruning on Sunday morning and even contemplating not going along to my monthly quilting group that afternoon. But I am glad that I downed tools and hopped off the mower to get along.

Rainbow Patchwork owner Karen opens her back room on the first Sunday afternoon of each month. Last Sunday it was just Karen, Kirsten from Gemini Stitches and I. 

Karen was using a French General jelly roll to make a gorgeous table runner. Kirsten was sewing long strips of Denyse Schmidt together for her Scrappy Trip Along quilt. You can find Kirsten's SMS Give Away here.

I took along my Dr Seuss panels and fabrics to sew four more blocks together. Karen helped me to chose some solids to match my Dr Seuss prints. So I was happy to purchase those. I will post about them soon on Sunday Stash. It felt good to cut, sew and press again. And great to chat, drink tea and sew with two great women.

Linking up to WiP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. You've definitely got a lot on your plate with your little farm. Well, at least I picture it as a farm by now with those awesome trees, plants, the chicken and all that space. :)

    Looking forward to see more of the Polaroids.

  2. Your polaroids are great! I agree with Mareenchen - I love reading about your place, kind of like a chicken soap opera:-) Hope the bumblefoot is improving.

  3. I wish I had actual Polaroids that looked like your fabric ones! Such drama and intrigue: robots, green elephants and penguins!

  4. So glad you got your sewjo on! I really enjoy group - but I had a sick child and a working husband last Sunday. Oh Well - maybe next fortnight.
