Been Cutting and Preping

It has been a while since I last posted.  I have been  busy cutting, what seems like gazillions of one and a half inch squares of fabric for my Insanity Quilt.

What appears like a gazillion one and a haf inch squares of cream fabric.

Also been cutting some one inch elongated hexies for Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses (the cream surrounding the centre blocks)

Think I have enough for the time being to get a heads up on sewing blocks together for Lucy, and mainly basting half inch hexies for the Insanity Quilt.  With the Lucy Boston quilt I have quiet  few centres awaiting the cream elongated hexies to be attached.

What I did do earlier today was make a batch of Pumpkin Cheesy  Puffs, I halved the recipe, just to make sure I would like them, they are absolutely yumbo.  The only trouble is I removed them from the oven straight away from being cooked and they sunk.  But I was concerned the oven may burn them, (yes I had the oven off), but also had another tray to bake.  But that is OK, will know better next time.

Thank you for taking time to stop by.

 Happy stitching.



  1. I love all the hand sewing you do, Sharon.
    You bake too?! I only do that when we have visitors (and then I often just pop out to the cake shop) or bananas start to turn black in the bowl (muffins). Maybe one day when I have grandkids to feed, it will inspire me to bake.

    1. The hand sewing is all I can do at present, had some surgey and have a limit of 5kg of lifting. Unfortunately, both sewing machines weigh greater than 5kg.

  2. Sharon just love your pieced blocks, love this design

    1. Thank you, Dawnie, I canot take credit for the design,, my Lucy blocks are from Shiralee Stitches, a BOM. But I am enjoying them immensely.
