WIP Week 18 - More Pinwheel Progress!
Finished all the pinwheel blocks for the centre panal. Wasn't sure about the white but I think its working now.
Now I have to cut out 2.5 x 5.5 inch rectangles for the boarder. The pattern says just a 5.5 inch block of plain for the corners but think I'll do 4 more pinwheels instead.
*sigh* Have been feeling really grumpy the last few days, I am turning into a yelling Mummy, which isn't an attractive look especially when you hear your 4 year old yell in the same manner and tone to your 2.5 year old. The kids skateboarding over the road in their driveway are sh*tting me with the noise, we live in a cul de sac so its usually pretty quiet. Think its a combination of Grace's partically challenging behaviour at the moment and a bit of PMT. We are going to try a star chart to see if we can at least fix that!
And also been having questioning debates with my self over the joy of sewing quilts for other people. I used to love doing it but lately, well I'm not feeling the joy of doing it, more like its expected of me? So after this one for Elliott and one more for a girl in my Mothers Group who is due in June, thats it. I'm starting to look around my house and think about what I could sew for my girls. Not like they need any more quilts but Grace hasn't got one for her big girls bed, only toodler bed sized. And our queen sized bed quilt..... still a WIP for 2 years, so plently to do here.
