Sewing During Lockdown.

 Here in NZ we are now in day 10 of  Covid level 4 lockdown.

 Staying home the whole time has given me more incentive to get on with making my quilt, called "These are a Few of My Favourite Things.

 I have been using my Inktense pens to colour some black and white fabrics to make them more interesting for this particular project.
 I have been cutting out parts of fabrics ( fussy cutting ) to sew to background squares or strips. I had been through my fabric stash 3 times and was becoming a bit desperate what to use next. I mentioned it to my sister on the phone and she went through her fabric containers and popped some bits in the post.-  they got to me in less than 4 days.
 I am now probably going to break some of my self imposed rules. I don't really like cup cakes but I'll put them in anyway.
 I have drawn a few with my pens but they seem a bit pale. Otherwise it is coming along well. I think I may  be 75 % there now. That depends on the final size I decide on.
 Every night I sew more on while watching TV - cause that's not always very exciting.
 I missed the company of my Quilting friends today but made sure it was a sewing day for me.
 I hope you Kiwis are all well an doing as we are told.( for how much longer? )

What a lovely project to play with while you are stuck at home. I look forward to seeing how it evolves.

You have a great collection of favourite things there. Hopefully your lockdown will ease soon and the virus not spread.

I also find I'm focusing more on finishing quilt projects these last few crazy years. Had never heard of those pens - they seem to do a lovely job if that first flower is anything to go by. Will be watching to see the finished project!
