February Fresh Sewing Day

Linking up with Lynne and the Fab Fresh Sewing crew today for a little recap of the month of January :-)


Fresh Sewing Day




Not a whole lot of sewing went down this month, I was mostly working on Paula's quilt, which I rambled on about here.


February Fresh Sewing Day
1. Paula's Quilt, 2. Paula's Quilt, 3. P1000626, 4. P1000615, 5. Mouthy stitches idea 3, 6. Tablet PC pouch for Granny, 7. Tablet PC pouch for Granny, 8. Zips Galore!, 9. Pieced!!!


I also went on a photography course, and took some fairly nice (if I do say so myself) pics of the countryside.


I made my granny a little Android tablet pouch thingy, and went a bit OTT with the perle. But I liked it anyway!


I placed my first order with Zipit, and reveled in the rainbow colours just a little bit too much.


I decided on a design for the Mouthy Stitches swap, now I just need to see if I can realize it. A 6" swoon block?! Am I mad??


And finally, or initially, depends how you look at it, I did my first successful bit of hand piecing and created a rose star. This will become a pillow/cushion soon for a birthday pressie. I'm thinking a linen background, and maybe some cerise or orange piping?


Make sure to check out what everyone else has been upto! Some in particular, have been super over achievers this month ;-)


(Jealous? Moi? Of course not...)

  3. Your quilts are so lovely. Nothing says HOME like a quilt. I tried my hand at a few some years ago and really enjoyed it but am so much better with yarn, hooks & knitting needles! I admire your talent. HAPPY STITCHING!

  9. I love the tree pic, it looks very professional. We obviously have different standards of "not much sewing" too - this looks like you've been very busy!
