Most of accomplishments in February were baby related.......I am writing this on 29th in readiness for Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day and as I type, it seems that my favourite daughter has kept her legs crossed to avoid a leap day baby - hooray!
Just missing out in my January makes was this pincushion for my sewing table - it is excellent, no pins lying about......
It's working well for me, and I love the scraps that I used - thoughtfully picked out and sent to me by Reene in the Brit cushion swap.
Next up was my zippy pouch for the Mouthy Stitches swap - sent this off last week to my secret partner, and am patiently (not) awaiting mine. This was a fun swap and pouches are dropping thro letterboxes all over the World!
In February I managed to finish the hexies, get them all sewn together and I have attached a first, narrow border.I am thinking a wider second border, first thought was white but moving towards grey, what do you think?
Oh, and in case you think I put a lot of thought into my work -lol, the narrow border was binding that I cut too narrow for my Peeps quilt - I did use a bit of the same fabric in the hexies so I think I can be forgiven..
My Pips quilt is pretty much done as far as quilting goes, all bound and awaiting the baby's arrival (if it's a boy) I have done a little machine embroidery (apples) on it and plan a bit more........
I intend calling this one Apple Pips as it is a hybrid of two charm packs, Sherbet Pips and Little Apples.
Next up is my Caribbean Creatures, an almost finished UFO, just the binding to hand stitch and I can add it to my Finish A Long projects - thanks Rhonda for keeping me motivated to finish stuff.
I fancy this one as a playmat for keeping in my own house and I added a bit of fun to it with words.
This might prove fun in years to come?
May I present to you, my first ever (and probably last ever) patchwork slippers! Ta da. These are for my sis, in Oz,,who spotted them online somewhere - turns out they are one of Ayumi's designs and I managed to track down and download the pattern here. It cost only $4.00 so pretty good value I reckon. As ever, I still have to stitch down the binding and then they will be done. And a big thank you to Christelle for giving me some grippy stuff for the soles, hard to track down in the UK.
And, lastly, I managed to whip up a block for Judith's Bee Blessed project. I have missed a couple of months for this good cause - sorry Judith. But, I had so much fun making this one, she looks a bit lopsided but hopefully will fit right in. If you would like to try this at home, go on over to Judith's blog - she has a great tutorial.
Maybe I should call her Pippi Pips.......
Some of you might have noticed that Monday Memories is missing this week - I am finding the weekly schedule a bit much just at the moment but it will be back soon, promise.
Does anyone ever feel like their head is going to burst, they have so many ideas and projects in there, just bursting to come out??
