Busy with life

Daughter and boyfriend have a new rental apartment, will be moving next week.  Sort of suggested she take the sewing machine there so as to catch up.  "Can't!" she says, "don't have an iron or an ironing board!"  Says has had no need!  A little questioning, and I discover that this is the same for most of her friends.  She says she thinks one friend may have an ironing board.   I love their confidence to defy convention!

Things have been crazy lately.  I decided to repeat the second half of the beginners French at our local Alliance Francais, and to speed it up, taking the 3-hour twice a week class.  That's Monday and Wednesday evening used up.   So sewing has almost ground to a halt.

I needed to make another 40cm block for our group quilt, as the first disappeared!

Actually, I think this one is better sewn, and was quicker to make.

Supernova Quilt-Along

On Friday we finished all he cutting and put the first of the 36 initial blocks together.  So far, so good!

Her grandmother has kindly loaned her Bernina, so that we can both sew.  Tonight she is sewing!
