Progress has been made on Bullseye - finished sewing the strip triangles on Saturday afternoon just before John and I went to see "Avatar" 3D (which we both enjoyed, although I had my eyes shut quite often).
Yesterday, after ironing etc, I sewed the triangles into squares and trimmed them.
The blocks are sewn together and some of the bullseyes have been machine blanket-stitched - haven't had a machine that sews blanket-stitch before and I love it. Tonight I'm hoping to finish sewing on the bullseyes and start on the borders - narrow black/white spot border and then lime green piano keys.
Our on-line group's first swap opening for 2010 was last Friday - the theme was Leanne Beasley. I was lucky because I received my beautiful present from Jenny when I arrived in Kingaroy. Jenny made me a basket liner (which I've always wanted) and there was another surprise when I arrived home - Jenny had sent me a basket.
Jenny liked the design so much she made one for herself.
My other partner was Bec and I combined two Leanne Beasley patterns to make her a block keeper - "Flowers for Erica" for the stitcheries and LB's block keeper pattern from Homespun No 28.
Finished stitching Block 3 of Tail Feathers last night
These blocks are so sweet - Baby Tail Feathers is due in 7 weeks.
