Something has been happening!

A little sewing time has been happening today...yay!
DD has been home for the weekend which has been lovely...all being well she will be finished uni in a month or so & then be on the lookout for work...maybe even off our payroll!
Cars have been washed, lawns mowed & lots of chat...keeping things calm prior to the start of DS exams this week...breathe slowly...we will survive...we just need to be there for him.
DD finished her mug bag to go with the apron for her friend's 21st present...
it looks really lovely.


I spent some time working on the Sue Ross BOM from MO...
I am pleased with it so far.


And there are so many things that can't be seen...

so here is a bit of a tease...my selvedge container...it is very full, so it may give some glimpses of what may be under construction at my place!

PS Our kiddos must be about the same ages. My daughter is 20, but will be 21 at the beginning of December, and my son is 18, but will be 19 in early November.

The apron and mug bag look great! I'm sure that Alissa will love them!! Are you hand piecing or machine piecing your bom?
