Still sewing and by hand too!

I've been doing quilty things in between life things.

Kinda difficult with life being so busy.  Lots of things going on. 
I'm having to come to grips with some of my bff's leaving town, darn better opportunities and family being closer. 

To ease my pain I've been sewing on a few things, one of them is this hand stitched block.

Hand Stiching QAL Block 1

My fella told me it's so authentic!  And the fabric is from England.  Oh my - I'm spoiled rotten!

I'm thinking I'll turn this into something else and make another without wonky edges.  I do love my first hand pieced block. 

This is the first block of a new Quilt Along with Erin over at Why Not Sew? I'm behind but it doesn't bother me. :)  I'm not sure if I'll do all of these or not.  But having a new tool is helpful!

Hope that you all are doing grand and a bit more productive than I have been the last few weeks.


  1. Oh you are a far better woman than I hand sewing a block! Hope it helps keep your mind busy though, sorry about your friends

  2. Change is not always easy or fun...I hope that they all keep in contact and make the transition smoother!

    Love your block. Hope you have a nice week!

  3. Hey girl! I awarded your blog an award. Go check it out! http://mommyforreals.blogspot.com/2012/02/liebster-award.html

  4. Wow! Hand stitching your blocks - that is something I don't think I would be able to do. Change sucks - being married to someone in the military I have a hard time keeping up with who is leaving and who is arriving. Making friends is difficult - easier now though that we moved off the base and into a non-military community (people tend to stay put longer outside the military I have noticed). Hugs!
