I DID MANAGE...

... some sewing today... I started with the April Postcard for the Congleton Quilt group swap..


this month is applique. I made a flower as a promise for summer x Ready to go in the post x

Then it was back to the half square triangles ...


...these are  the  blocks for the Brit Swap for April .. ready to go to Fiona xx Right in the middle of making the block with the spots my machine threw a fit and the tension KEPT going wrong!! I stuck with it and eventually it worked again .. I WISH I  knew what I did to fix it!!!!!!

Last block of the day was the April Stash Bee block for Kim...


not quite HST .. but close xx  The Post Office will be busy Monday morning xx

Lovely flower postcard and those blocks are really nice too. Your swap partners are going to be happy. Glad that you got your tension sorted.

Great blocks. And I got in about 15 minutes of sewing today unfortunately. Too many tax returns too priority. I hate tax season.

I would love to get the reaction of the postal service.

I always wonder what it is throws that tension off! Usually rethreading will sort it, but I recently had to tighten the screw on the bobbin race...

Lovely makes, again!
