DWM Just a little bit

I did a lot of work and yet I don't have a lot to show as most of the work I've done is not quilting related. If you don't mind, I will share the little bit I did in the sewing room.

Two more nameless blocks that adorn my design wall.

Cut the fabric for about four more. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to sew them this week.

Hélène and I are better friends now. Hélène has a "knee pedal" and I am slowly learning how to "drive". LOL. In the picture is a new small project. Hopefully, I'll be able to show this one next Monday too.

A complete stranger but wonder person, sent me, via email, the manual for this particular Singer. She also sent me websites' addresses so I can learn everything there is to know about ALL my Singer machines. YEAH!!  She doesn't have a blog but I am so happy she read mine and took pity on me. :) Thank you so much Sandy.

I redid ten more 9 Patch and sew them into Double 9 Patch. 

AND ... Ellen from Little Jewel Quilts had a very generous giveaway about a month ago and I won this beautiful batik bundle. Isn't it GOOOORRRRGEOUS? !! ♫♪Happy dance♪♪♫. I don't know where I will use it ... it intimidates me. I am happy to just fondle it for now. :) Thank you again Ellen. ♥♥♥

That's it. Like I said, not much to show, just a little bit. I am joining Judy from Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world and that you are sewing more often than I.

Enjoy!  ;^)

P.S. I noticed that a lot of blogs have a "I'm not a robot" check. You don't have to play along to most of them. Write a comment and click publish. Completely ignore the robot thing. Works 99% of the time. Just thought I should share. So have a great day and post comments :)


  1. Love those double nine patches and the nameless blocks. Looks like you've not been a total slacker in the sewing room. ;-)

  2. great blocks and lovely win of those fabrics... how lovely to have been sent the manual for your new machine..

  3. C'est bien si vous arrivez "à vous entendre" avec Hélène !! LOL !
    En tout cas, tu as réalisé deux jolis nouveaux blocs et les batiks sont très beaux !! As-tu une idée de ce que tu vas faire avec ??
    Passe une bonne journée !

  4. Oh I think you have been quite busy! and with a manual to read as well. I am glad you were sent it so now maybe you are winding bobbins on Helene? xx

  5. Really pretty fabric and nice blocks. How fun to have the manual for your machine!

  6. It looks like you and Helene are getting along famously. Those batiks that you won are simply gorgeous - you'll have lots of fun with them.

  7. Your fabric win is lovely! Lucky you! I wonder why most machines use foot pedals now instead of the knee pedal? At least the knee pedal stays put and doesn't travel across the floor.

In the Shades

Yes, you've heard me complain about how hot it is at the moment in Canada but I want to finish the flannel quilt for my son.  Our emblem...
