A Few Days Off Work

I've been sewing "Fresh" blocks over the last week.  This Thimble Blossoms design using Fig Tree fabrics - a favourite combination either way - has been cut out for 3 months or so.

 

4 blocks to make and the quilt top can be sewn together - after my least favourite job:  laying out the blocks. I've made one little change to the original design by adding coloured squares to the outer corners of each block rather than having a plain background piece.

I had 3 days off work last week - went way too fast.  Saw "Les Miserables" in Sydney on Wednesday night with Mum and my girls - would really love to see it again.  Dinner with a friend on Thursday night, a bit of shopping and lunch with friends on Friday, great local production of "Mary Poppins" on Saturday night and then visiting the family in Sydney yesterday.  A great few days.

All that socialising AND sewing time too! I'd say that was time very well spent! I'm wondering why laying out the blocks is your least favourite job? Is it all the agonising over placement, or is it hard on your back (that's my main complaint with that side of quilt making!)
