catching up

I've gotten behind with a Christmas sew along. Last week i tried to get to the machine to catch up & manged to get 2 lots of blocks done.
I wasn't happy with these blocks so this week completely remade them.These are version 2.

So many half square triangles. That was it for another week & i'm still so far behind.

During the week i started this stitchery

A new Christmas one by Natalie Bird.

During the evenings i've been working on Mischief. I end up with aching fingers due to my osteo & whilst sewing row 1 & 2 together i tried flat back stitching. It is a little slow going but my fingers don't ache like they do if i whip stitch pieces together.
Row 3 nearly done. I am getting faster at the flat back. :).

Wednesday i managed time at my machine but because i remade the pinwheel blocks only 1 set of blocks was caught up on.
Still 2 sets of blocks to make & the bow week was to be started this week. I'm hoping to catch up on Monday.
Yesterday afternoon i prepped 47 coffins for my quilt.

Happy Stitching,

what pretty blocks... I even like the ones before you remade them.
great stitchery too.
the little coffins look great, are you stash busting or are they a range of fabrics.
Happy sewing!
