Work in Progress Wednesday

Unfortunately I have not been able to sew since the 13th July but I did manage to start cutting the fabric and counting hexy papers for my month, November, Get Your Hex On. I know it's early but I do have a habit of leaving things to the last minute.
Just three more to pack up.
I've had a lovely day playing with my youngest grandchild, then to the allotment for watering the green house and weeding.
I am now going to a get a little machine sewing done, I spent yesterday tidying my sewing room, I couldn't find anything. before.

Christmas QAL

I have only managed some basting of diamonds, so far today.  I am melting with the heat and now a thumping headache, I have just got back from watering the greenhouse and courgettes at the allotment. Plus a quick shop as it's going to be hot again tomorrow. My photos are not good enough to post, so I'll re do them in the morning.

Get Your Hex On July

I enjoyed making this months block for Get Your Hex On, pretty shades of blue. I think Erin's finished quilt will be stunning.

Halfway through the projects and looking forward to the next six. I still keep changing my mind when I see new fabrics.
I was very tempted by a sewing machine in a local shop, Seamstress is the only name I can see on it.
I'm not sure of it's age ( possibly 50's or 60's ), it does zig zag and you can drop the feed dogs. There is an instruction book but not many feet or tools, the electrics look good.
Perhaps if it is still there tomorrow I'll bring it home.
