Way back in January I wrote a list of sewing projects to do in the next three months... and about 3 days after I posted I was drafted in to the organising committee of Around the Table AND my 4 year old dropped her day sleep and needed constant supervision at lunchtime (without it she would put herself to bed, but then be up till all hours at night!) In one fell swoop my sewing time was reduced to virtually nothing *sob!*
In addition to all of this, my sewing machine slowly started playing up more and more and I gradually stopped trusting it to do a good job.
With these things in mind, please don't be too tough on me and my lack of progress.
The Sunshine Quilt
Progress has been made- but not too much!
The quilt has been basted and I am using this quilt to test and expand my FMQ skills. So far I have discovered that my machine is a thread snob and will only behave properly with expensive thread *sigh!*
|This was when I was still experimenting with different kinds of thread!|
I would say that the quilt is now about half quilted. I hope to finish it in the not too distant future and now that I have discovered how to get my machine to behave properly this aim may even me achievable!!!
The Sampler Quilt
When I posted about this quilt in January, I only had 5 blocks to make before completing the top. Now I only have three to go.. I know, I know, not great progress but at least there has been some...
Ummm, shall we move on quickly???
Done, dusted and sent to its owner who loves it! (Phew, at least I have one finished project to show for myself) I really love how this one turned out, especially as I was completely making it up as I went along!
Tutorial for my Box Bag
Still a random list of measurements I'm afraid, BUT I really want to get onto this one in the near future. Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon.
I'm really trying not to be too hard on myself, because this last quarter of a year has been BU-SY! I can't wait to get back behind my sewing machine in the not too distant future! Maybe I'll have more success next quarter!
Oh and with the help of my friends I have finished another king single sized quilt (so I have not been a complete sewing failure), but I'm not sharing any more details until it has been safely handed over!
Oh ...and there was the hexagon cushion too!
Maybe I was a bit more productive than I give myself credit for!!!
