So in between all the daily goings on that come with a family at home on a Sunday, I sat and sewed 60 pieces of material together to make the blocks that I need.
In the end I had to 'draw a plan' so that I knew where I was up to and what I was supposed to be sewing.
But I persevered and I now have a pile of blocks that should make 11 more stars.
And here is star number 2. Achieved in a calm manner, with time to think it all through and with no interruptions. I have come to the conclusion that quilting is best done during the week when I am on my own.
When there is time to sit quietly, enjoy the moment and have the added bonus of looking up to see these beautiful lilies that Mark bought for me.
