Nothing big going on around here this weekend on the sewing front but there are some bits and pieces I can share.
First up is this fabulous Bee Blessed Antique Tile quilt top -
I've been piecing the donated blocks together for the Bee and I think it's so stunning. Of course, I have a penchant for blue and white quilts so this is right up my street, but I think you'll agree that this block looks great as a quilt. Thank you so much to all of you who contributed blocks - can you spot yours? If you don't see yours here, fear not, we have a second Antique Tile top in aquas/blues coming along with the remaining blocks that were sent to us so if yours isn't here, it'll likely be in there in due course.
September brought a return to hours of my week spent waiting poolside during swim training so I've been picking up my crochet again and the chevrons now look like this -
Would you believe me if I told you there's an hour's work in every chevron stripe? (Maybe I'm just slow!) This is soft and snuggly, and some days too warm to be working up in a stuffy swimming pool, but I am really enjoying making my waiting time productive again.
Also this week I finally got around to making a zippy cosmetic purse requested by my mum some time ago - bad daughter!
She likes angels, so while the rest of you are having heart attacks over the country angels in brown, I am happy that she will be okay with it!
And, I have finally reached the end of the 572 pieces I've been cutting from shirt scraps for my son's Squares and Strips bed quilt!
What's more, clever me already has 22 of the 88 eventual blocks completed? See ...

Is that cheating? In any case it means just 66 blocks left to make!
So what have you been up to this weekend?
