Nothing like a visit from your bestie to add some much needed perspective - thank you Miss Lizzie - you always make it better :)

We spent the day yesterday loading up the long arm with a quilt that Liz is making for me - I feel so spoilt - it's a beautiful quilt - and there's going to be hand quilting as well - soooo looking forward to this one being finished and I can show it off in all its glory then....

While Liz was quilting, I actually got some Farmer's Wife blocks done - another 6 making a grand total of 93 complete - only 18 more to go - last time I did anything on this was about 3 months ago - so an attack of the miseries substantially increased my sewing output this last week....hopefully it continues (not the miseries, the output - I have an assignment due on Friday and my piece is still only at concept stage...)

blocks 88 - 93

....and here's me trying to get a good shot of my new top - some say it is a good shot because I cut off my  head  - and I will never win prizes for photography.......but, check out the shoes - these are so high I can only just about  stand in them - although the first time I wore them, at a wedding, I managed to do the 'Nutbush' without falling over - they are highly impractical but I love them..

Hope you have a good week


  1. Glad to hear you have your mojo back!!
    Looove your red and white Farmer's Wife blocks. Would love to see them all together.

    Great heels!!!!

  2. Fabulous shoes! Cannot wait to see the farmer finshed :)

  3. Begone the miseries. Continue the fab sewing mojo. And how on earth can you wear those shoes? I look like a three year old playing dress up when I try to wear heals!

  4. Love your shoes, I'm impressed you could do the nutbush in them, I'd be going just to stay upright. Love the red and white farmer's wife blocks, they're so fresh.
    Not sure if I've managed to get my email address sorted on "72 derwents" - I'm

  5. Oooh, the FW end is in sight, go Kay! Good luck with your assignment too :o)

  6. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - much appreciated. I do love the red and white blocks - I seem to have stalled as far as the Farmer's Wife is concerned - oh dear!

  7. How is your assignment going? Due today? I would love to see your farmers wife blocks they are looking fabulous. Awesome shoes, I would break my neck!! xo

  8. Great blocks.
    Sounds like you guys had a great day. Not surprised you're smiling.
    Love the shoes :)

  9. Your Farmer's Wife progress is admirable--so many blocks and now you are so close to being finished. Love those shoes. I can never put those kind on again--so I admire those who do. Fabulous top (what we can see of it) Always fun to visit your blog and see what you've been up to.
