Here's a sneaky peak of what I've been up to. As well as a lot of online Christmas shopping.
Top left is my Snowy Starry Night quilt, finished in September but finally revealed/ published this month in Fat Quarterly.
Top right - got my IGminiswap quilt all labelled and sent off. It should be with its recipient any day now so i will be able to share properly soon. Happily I remembered to take photos before I sent it!!
Middle left - boring but necessary pouch commission all done.
Middle right - the ever hilarious Hannah and I started and finished our Super Totes in two marathon sewing sessions. Post to come soon, I promise.
Bottom left - my faintly festive giant churn dash which still shamefully needs the binding sewing down.
Bottom right - November's STQB block for Nicky which I managed to procrastinate on till the last minute, most unlike me, I blame the partial seam!
And looking ahead to Deecember ...
1) STQB. It's my month. My block isn't made and my post isn't up. Watch this space, I have a plan I promise!
2) Faintly festive churn dash. The tree is up, the other Christmas quilt is on the sofa (and has already had a banana squashed on it today). That binding needs sewing down asap.
3) A whole ridiculously long list of pyjamas, dresses and tops that I would quite like to make for the girls, and possibly even for me. By Christmas. Ha.
4) My Christmas handwork project. We are away a lot over Christmas, which has its positives but I do feel very irked that I have lots of downtime but no ability to do my hobby when away from home. So I bought this at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show.
It's by Nicola Jarvis and is a crewel work kit. I think it's rather beautiful, as are all her designs. I haven't done embroidery for about 25 years and have never done crewel work ... I bought the smaller version mainly due to cost, but having inspected its teeny tiny-ness I am rather regretting that. Anyway, we will see!!
Linking up with Lynne at Lily's Quilts and Fresh Sewing Day AKA my monthly kick up the bum!
