Today I am linking up with Lily's Quilts with a Blog Hop with a Fresh Sewing Day round up. I can't believe September is here already, as August went by in a blink of an eye ( and a splosh of a puddle).
Here at QD land things have been busy, with lots of little projects going on and a bit of planning of future creations. Feel free to visit Flickr to get a better look of the little pile of finished goodies. I was particularly pleased to complete of a small bright quilt, which I made for no particular purpose except that I fell in love with the fabrics, ( called "123 Play with me", by Victorian Textiles). I also had fun using up the orphans afterwards which I turned into some more pot holders for a train buddy. She saw the ones I had made for Number One Son and asked for some to give as a gift, which was very flattering.
I was pleased with how jolly they looked, so I can add them to the list of completed things for this month.
As with any "Fresh Sewing Day" post I must let you know of plans for the month to come and one of these makes me very very excited, but I will save that till last.
But..... plans are
- finish piecing "Happy Campers" for Pepper Ann
- Quilt " Autumn Shadows", a piece I worked on this month, in grey tones with a lovely bright orange contrast . The quilt is based on the long low shadows the sun produces in our part of the world at this time of the year. You will have to come back to see pictures of this one as I want to keep you in suspense...
- try my hand at the Jack Attack Quilt-A-Long at Lily's Quilts. I just couldn't resist even though I have loads to do
- and dah dahhhhh, I will receive my little bundle of treasures from Narcoleptic in the cupboard, who has organised a Japanese Charm swap. This is my first swap and I am very excited. The fabrics chosen are all up on Flickr if you want to pop by, and my word, they are brilliant. Archie the wonderdog tipped me the wink via her blog and as I haven't used Japanese fabrics before I couldn't resist that either ( you can see I have no will power when it comes to fabric can't you).
I have chosen this terrific "Robots and Cars " fabric from Kokka, but shopping for it was so tempting so I had to buy these brilliant owls and the hilarious "chemistry lab".
So pop by again next month when I check off the list and confess what did or didn't get done
