Following up from my 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop post I was really interested to read how quilters get their dinners made. There were some who prepped ahead and made double batches for the freezer - mostly pasta sauces, lasagna and casseroles. There were those like me who end up at tea time with no idea what to cook, takeaways and ready bought meals also featured. What came as a surprise to me was how many many husbands do the cooking in a quilting household!!

April has gone very quickly indeed. Of course, 2 weeks were Easter holidays and it was strange getting into the rhythm of having the girls home every day - it just shows how quickly we adjust to new situations! I didn't get much time in the studio - I think I have been spoilt by having uninterrupted time whilst they are at school that I didn't want to make do with the odd 10 minutes here and there! I had one day sewing with a group of local ladies. We have only just recently started to meet and I have missed the last 3 months so it was such a pleasure to sit and sew and share food in wonderful company.
I learnt how to spin/pop seams aswell - which I have tried several times with no joy. I used this tutorial from Adrianne from On the Windy Side which I read about in Snowy Days Quilting. This was a new to me blog when I started the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers group and it's been wonderful getting to know Bobbi. And the resulting pinwheels ....
There is something very good for the soul to sew with others and make for others. x
