Yes I am still working on new stuff

But what is it.

I know that many of you say to me I don't know how you get so much done while you are travelling so much. Well, I get organised I make sure I have sewing in my bag all the time. Waiting for planes, on planes, in the car,  the hotel rooms when ever I can I will sew. That all adds up to alot of time which would otherwise be waisted.

I have fallen in love with little tumblers or thimbles as some people call them. I decided it was a must have quilt so I just had to get started. But, first of all I was not going to cut out all of those little tumblers with a pair of scissors. No way!!  And yes I know you are all expecting this to be an English Paper piecing variety but no not this time.

I am doing this with traditional hand piecing or you can use your machine if you must.

A template was the order of the day.

The finished size is 1/2" across the small side, 1 1/4" on the opposite side (bottom) 

So as soon as Sam (my very talented graphics girl) had cut the templates on our fabulous laser machine I was into it. Cutting lots of layers at a time and then sewing and it is going together very quickly.

So this is where I am up to.

Happy tumbling
