Still pleading Nearly Insanity :-)

Here are my Nearly Insane blocks, 43 in all.
43 of 98, so still many seams to go.

I am making NI my priority project for June and will see how far it will bring me.
Every seam is a step forward though and eventually they will all be done, right ? :-)

My beloved Janome 6600 machine had to go in for a service, so foundation paper piecing will be a good choice on my old Pfaff. The Pfaff and the Janome have a little difference in the seam allowance so I will not do any other piecing before the Janome is back home.
The bobbin winder gave up without any notice and a general service is good too, when it is in the shop.

I am blushing over all the lovely comments you have left for my Watermelon quilt - thank you a million times :-)
I am displaying it on a quilt rack I have in my living room, ready to use if someone need to wrap themselves in a quilt, and when it is hanging there I see it and enjoy it. It is folded in half length wise.

Someone asked about the block's name. I found it in Block Base by Barbara Brackman under the name King's Star (Nancy Cabot). I hope you are helped.

Since it is Friday night already and DH will like some company, I will stay with my stitchery tonight - another Bronwyn Hayes lady if you wondered.
I guess you did not, as you know me by now :-)
The old Pfaff is not exactly sewing silently, and I am sewing in a corner of my living room, so Friday night is handwork mostly.

Friday evening is TV evening here in my house, and I do enjoy the Friday evening crime / mystery program. Right now it is a program on with "old" music, from the stone ages, when I was young(er) - according to my DDs.
Don't even mention I am singing out loud when they are not here ;-)

Enjoy the rest of your Friday everyone :-)
