Fresh Sewing Day - finally!


Lily's Quilts

  
It's my first FSD post of 2012!!!  (And we're not quite halfway through the year, it's a miracle!)

Fresh Sewing Day with Lily's Quilts




I've spent most of the month piecing my Stained blocks, trying to work out how to stretch the leftovers far enough to make the backing blocks (still not sure it's going to work!) and preparing hexies...and taking lots and lots of photos of Archie!

(And I've finally managed to upload a photo directly from Flickr!  Not that it's hard, I just haven't got round to doing it before - I think I'm going to have to give in and go 'Pro' though...)


I have a feeling there's a couple of big things going on in the UK this weekend - I just can't quite remember what they are...I'm sure it'll come back to me!

Whatever you're up to, have a brilliant weekend (and wave a flag for me!)
