Friday Night Sew-In: Saturday Morning Report, June

A very quick report before I dash off to catch a train and see the Quilts 1700 - 2010 Exhibition at the VandA, my ticket is for 11 a.m.

I had a productive Friday Night Sew-In even though some of it was actually a Sew-Out.

1.  My quilting on the surprise quilt for July is now all unpicked and I'm ready to have another go.

2.  I cut a pile of 5" squares for a wavy four-patch quilt that will feature in a tutorial very soon.

3.  I shortened a maxi summer dress by 4" (I'm obviously less maxi than some girls - in a vertical direction anyway).  This was a nightmare, the lining is stretchy and the outer layer is flimsy chiffon, but it's done.  Bring on the summer sunshine!

4.  I ate some very delicious chocolate from Venezuela.

I hope you all had a wonderful sew-in, I'll be back soon with a report on Quilts 1700 - 2010.


  1. ?? why does this post say Friday 18th June at the top - it's Saturday 19th June and it's a very esrly 6.53 a.m. zzzzzzzzz

  2. Hope you had a good day at the V&A in spite of the early start. Is there a Saturday afternoon sew in out there? Too lazy after work to sew on Friday evening but got some postcards in progress this afternoon.

  3. LOL, fixed it! My settings were on GMT - 8 hours, Pacific Time for some unknown reason! I'm back on GMT now!!
