I took some hand sewing with me on my recent trip to Barcelona. Something to while away the time as I rested my feet after all the sight seeing and I managed to finish the quilting on my Hawaiian block.
When I got back I didn’t waste any time in making it into a cushion cover and it’s now resting on my favourite chair.
What do you think?
Looking at the photos has made me realise that I now have an Hawaiian cushion and a Welsh cushion on my chair – maybe it’s time for me to make an English paper pieced cushion 😉
I also took some sewing to do on the plane – these little framed hexies were started a while ago at my local quilting group – and it was good to get them finished and ready to sew together which, now I’m home, I’m in the process of doing.
My friends were surprised that I was allowed to sew on the plane (needles, pins and scissors being potential weapons, although my scissors were nail scissors so had tiny blades).
I’d be interested to know if anyone has had a problem with doing this on a flight? The flight assistants didn’t bat an eyelid as I stitched the hours away.
I’m linking this post up to Esther’s WiPs on Wednesdays, it’s Esther’s birthday so why not go and wish her a happy birthday!
Until next time,
