An Easter of Stitching

I managed to organise myself well enough to have not one but two weeks of mid-semester break for Uni at the same time as the school holidays.  It took a lot of work, but it has been so nice to enjoy Easter with no assignments looming over me for the first time in four years!

What does a girl do with all that freedom?  She stitches, of course!  Well, she read books too but this was definitely the Easter of Stitching.  On the day we left to go away for five days I madly cut out material, fused fabric and traced stitching lines  I have managed to complete the embroidery for one block and have nearly completed the embroidery for the next one.  The FINAL one!  I may well finish the stitching in front of the telly this week, before Uni demands my attention again.

The pieces of each block will probably then be put aside to languish sullenly until the mid-year school holidays to be put together.  It is rather exciting to see the quilt top nearly done though.  I began this quilt before I began my degree, and at the rate I'm going the degree will be completed first.  Funny thing about deadlines I suppose.

looks good, and isn't it nice to take the time out and do something just for you?

I love your stitching and am so glad you've gotten a chance to do some! It seems like it's been a long time ...
