Split 9 patch

This weekend my guild had a in-city retreat. One of the girls found a great new location with a big bright sunny room. I was not able to go both days but did manage to go for a big part of Saturday. It was a super fun day. I had to leave early as going out for supper for DH birthday (which will be this week) and had friends coming over for a games night. It was a long, but very enjoyable day.

I started by working on the little nine patches I shared last week. I made them into a mini split nine patch top. A while ago the group did this as an example of what you can do with a charm pack. I think you can tell which one is mine :) I love seeing how different fabric can make a pattern look.

I also worked on my guild BOM, but more about that next post.

Small projects

This last week I did manage to find some time to work on a small project. I am finding that I can get handwork done more easily than getting to the sewing room. I had made these small stickery in the evening while watching TV, and managed to make it into a wall hanging this week. I even tried to do the piecing while LM was in the hospital, but the lighting was bad and I still need to work on my hand piecing.. The pattern and buttons were a gift a couple of years ago. I think this is such a cute little wall hanging, its about 6 by 12 inch.

I also stated work on this nine patch project, these are from a charm pack and so far I am happy with how they are turning out. Hopefully you see whats happening to these nest week.

Little Miss update

LM got out of the hospital on Tuesday and was an out patient which meant 3 trips to the hospital a day. Luckily we were able to go the the closer hospital, but this was still tiring on all of us. Today we went for reassessment and she has a good report. She is onto oral medication and will be able to go back to daycare next week. So far she has made more fuss about taking the new medication than she did about having an IV.
Hopefully my blog will return to more quilting things next week.
