While activities in the sewing shed have been brief, we have... a green robot...
I spent some time with my Dad who came to visit for a few days - and realised that he is the perfect person to gift my Tokyo Subway quilt to (once it's finished) as he was always a bit of a train buff, as well as being an industrial electrician, and it has always reminded me a bit of a wiring diagram so it seemed like an ideal match. Before he left, I laid out the 23 blocks completed to see whether he liked it... how could he not??? It looks radiant! I was very happy to see that all the "tracks" lined up between blocks.
Little Miss Nadia got a sewing machine for Xmas. Of course, I needed to provide training and encouragement but she certainly had plenty of enthusiasm. As I don't have the greatest patience levels (especially with my own children) I wasn't sure how it was all going to go.

After a few short bursts we had a small piece all joined together... hmm, now is it going to become a cushion, bag or doll blanket? Nadia was right pleased with herself!
