Last week before I gave my machine away I started a new project. I decided to do a small log cabin quilt.
Yes Nancy I can see you look in horror. I am paper piecing. I started with 1 inch strips and I am not the most accurate 1/4 inch sewer so I decided to go the paper piecing way. This project has been put away in the shipping boxes never to be seen again. Seriously I hope to see it again but who knows when the boxes will arrive and how long it will take to unpack my sewing stuff.
The movers arrive tomorrow. I am not looking forward to the next few days. I hope to post occasionally on our travels.

A long time ago Nancy gave Miss Nancy and I a block to stitch each. We did it and gave it to her. I then forgot all about it. Well my surprise was a wall hanging made with all 3 blocks- one stitched by each of us.
Isn't it great and the perfect present as it has something from each of us. Although I had to point out to them that this means that they made me work on my own present lol. I have had such a great time getting together with these 2 over the last 3 years.I will miss them although of course the Internet makes it a very small world.

I cut a piece of fleece the same size for the back, cut a 3 inch fringe on both pieces and tied them together. It looks great and she loves it.

But I did do something today. I made a travel pillow. We have shorter flights this time. Only 10 hours from Hawaii to Sydney instead of nearly 14 hours from LA to Sydney but I think they will come in handy. I bought this gorgeous fleece which is super soft. I love it and have enough to make one more. I was very good and only bought as much as I need. Now I wish I got more.
