Things have been awfully quiet here in my home this week. My sewing machine has been sitting dormant, there have been no loose threads attacking everyone's clothing and nobody has stepped on a pin. You see, I spent the first few days of the week either sitting in our local Emergency Department, or in a hospital ward wondering what on earth was going on with my insides! To cut a long story short - I had a pretty impressive pain in my abdomen from last Friday, and when I finally went to the GP on Monday afternoon, she sent me off to see if it was appendicitis. Hmmmm....... Ultimately, after spending one night in the ED and another night on the ward - it turns out they really couldn't figure it out, and didn't want to go exploring. Which suited me just fine! We shall now refer to those couple of days as "forced rest". On the plus side - I started The Hunger Games series of books, and had plenty of time to read!
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, and I really needed to sew. Nothing too big, just something to keep my hands busy. So I got on to this month's Wombat Stew Bee Blocks.
The lovely Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts designed her own Kimono paper pieced blocks, and asked us to choose either the front or back. I chose the front......
It came together sooooo quickly and was a wonderfully easy pattern to follow! So...... I decided I'd also make a back.....
Another very quick pattern to whip up!
And that my friends, is all I sewed this week! Well, I did just finish a dress tonight, but will save that for another day!
