I'm joining in on Kate's 15 minutes linky party again this week to report back on my progress. You can join in too . Just pop on over and pay Kate a visit at Life in Pieces for all the details!
I realised on Monday my holidays are half over and I haven't really done all that much in the sewing department so I decided to see if I could focus. And while not everything on my list from last week got ticked off I'm pretty happy with the results.
Aside from finishing my Merry Go round quilt (thankyou so much for your comments about my quilt - I feel very humbled by your kind words ) I also started and finished some other projects this week.
The zebra cushion became a pair . These are for Miss P who is positively potty about zebra anything.
The Christmas bunting is done . This would have been far more newsworthy if I had pulled off a finish BEFORE Christmas but I'm telling myself the late finish means I'm amazingly organised for Christmas 2012. I'll be pulling out that old chestnut again when I finally finish my Flurry quilt.
You know how I said I was going to try to take more interesting photographs this year . Above was one of my attempts. A photographer I am not. Bunting is incredibly hard to photograph.
Four more rainbow scrap blocks got added to the pile.
I came to the realisation that The Love Heart Applique quilt was NEVER going to be a quilt so I started making it into a cushion instead. It's backed in white chenille (have I mentioned lately how much I love chenille ?) so it's perfect for snuggling up to . It's a gift for a friend so I'm valiantly trying not to get too attached to it.
And I cut hexies for a rainbow scrap cushion I'm going to start this week. Im loving playing with my scraps. Colour makes me happy.
My Goals for this week
Pay some attention to my hourglass blocks
Finish 4 more blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Quilt
Start sewing hexies together for the scrappy cushion
Give one of the roadkill rescue footstools a makeover
Pyjamas for Brooke
Survive Babysitting Little P (the terrible two's have hit hard !)
