Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Monday 27 June 2011

Design Wall Monday June 27

I have a confession to make. I went out to Best Buy the other night and picked up Season one of Star Trek, the Next Generation. Yes, I'm a Trekkie. There, I said it. And, while watching episodes 1 to 8, I prepped and glue basted My Tweets block for June. I am so enjoying doing this BOM. It is quite time intensive for the actual preparation of the blocks. But once they are prepared, they are the perfect take along project, needing only appropriate coloured embroidery floss, needle and a small pair of scissors. No pins to get stuck with, or drop all over at the most inconvenient time or place. Just pick it up and start sewing. It travels with me to work, and appointments and on car and camping trips. And it will be going to work with me this afternoon. After a break of 11 days, I'm back to work again. Why do days off always fly by so quickly? (sigh) To see more design walls, go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times Ther is always lots to see there. When I was there about 20 minutes ago, there were already 60 other walls to look at. Lots and lots of eye candy and inspiration.

Edit: LynCC from What a Hoot has asked that I link my BOM to her linky for BOM', so I've done that as well as linking with Judy


  1. I have not started Tweets yet as I am still working on Florabunda. Love your colors!! I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.

  2. hehe :) You are not alone in your Trekiness - we are currently in season 3 of TNG for our evening relaxations. We worked our way through all the Voyager seasons a while ago.

    I wondered if you'd be willing to also link up at my BOM's AWAY "party" - I'm so antsy to be able to start working on "My Tweets"! I need to get fabrics for it, though, and I am way too busy with other BOMs to start it before October. Here's my url: http://whatahootquilts.blogspot.com/2011/06/boms-away-7.html.

  3. I like Star Trek, too. I loved it as a little girl -- I can remember watching the old school version on TV in our living room, waiting for dad to get home from work. I've always like sci-fi stuff. We're so same-to-same! LOL! Your My Tweets block is darling! What kind of sewing doing you do on these, since their glue basted? Do you do a top stitching stitch? Have fun at work -- I hope it goes smoothly! :)

  4. THanks, Cathy :) She's so pretty!

  5. Lovely!

    One of things I love about applique is the "take alongness". Sometimes I think prepping and basting takes longer than sewing!

  6. I just love those Tweets blocks! I've been collecting them, but they're not on my schedule yet. Yours is lovely, keep us posted on the progress!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
