Distractions!

A bit of a distracted weekend here in Wales. I had lots of good intentions, but ended up getting into the rugby - shame Wales lost. DH is a real rugby fan, he loves World Cup time, so there's a match on pretty much all of the time, and I just cant help getting sucked in to them.
I spent yesterday morning at my quilt group, which was nice. I took some hand sewing along with me, but it stayed in the box - whoops! I did take some photos of 1 of mine and a couple of the other ladies quilts made with charm packs. We are developing quite an addiction to these little packs of squares, but sometimes it's difficult to know what to do with them, so I am trying to create a little folder for the group with ideas in, which is why I was taking photos. Sadly, some of the photos didn't come out, so I'll have to do them again next time.
I have done a bit of stitching. I've been piecing the borders for my little confetti quilt, but they're not quite finished yet ( and now it's time for a glass of wine, so the machine/rotary cutter has gone away!) I should be able to show some progress in a day or two. The Four Seasons quilt is coming on as well - why does it take me ages to decide what I'm going to do - I just keep on changing my mind until time forces me into a decision!
I have also joined a little Round Robin. I have never done one of these before, always feeling a bit nervous about working on another person's quilt. But this is a little one - start with a 4.5 inch block and just have 3 rounds of 2.5 inch borders. Hopefully I shouldn't find it too stressful. This is my little centre block, I decided to go for scrappy as a theme.





I hope that you've had a good weekend too!

I've never done any Round Robins, but I have swapped a lot and it's nice to see what other people do. I think your starter block is great and it will be interesting to see what it looks like when you get it back. Best of luck with it!
