Sort of. I tried to post a couple of days ago, but the internet crashed, so I put it in the too hard basket. I’ve been catching up on all my quilting bee blocks for April.
These two for Katie. Loved doing these, and the improv piecing was just what i needed.
These two for Sudi-Laura. Cute !
And this one for Sarah. This was the most challenging one this month. The pattern was straight forward enough, I was careful with seam allowances, but still had to make 2 to get a half decent circle.
I got lovely mail. Did a swap with Christine in California, look at the gorgeous goods that came my way, a Jelly Roll of Romance by April Cornell, a charm pack to go with it, Heather Ross lightning Bug stripes, a FQ of Amy Butler and two prints from the Cogsmo range. Score !! It return I sent Christine a whole bunch of Bleeker Street FQ’s, Michael Millar Large whimsy and Art Gallery that I had. Swaps are great !
After starting a dish cloth months ago (maybe even a year), I was convinced to finish it. Even though I do profess to not being able to knit, that’s not strictly true. It only needed a few rows to finish it.
I might even make some more. I have cast on a hat for Cameron. It’s a really easy pattern called the noggin hat which I have knitted before, so I know it’s achievable. I though I better have some portable craft to take on holiday with me.
A friend who also crafts came to stay, it was awesome to be able to talk for hours with a like-minded crafty person. Cam also had a great time playing for 2 days with her wee boy, what a difference to playing with bigger siblings. I was also very lucky that my lovely friend made me this gorgeous messenger bag. It’s fab!!! It’s now my everyday bag. I love it! It’s reversible too. Such a clever sewer.
I’ve made 2 more blocks for the Pinwheel Party. I’m loving seeing these blocks in just the 2 colours. So fresh and modern!
You can expect to see a few more bigger finished projects soon. I’ve sold all the current quilts in the shop and most of the other goods too so I have given myself 2 months off to finish all my WIP quilts. I’m just finishing quilting an old hand pieced quilt for a friend, after that I plan to finish the big NZ quilt for our bed, hopefully before the next set of wintery weather sets in.
