Fresh Sewing Day
Like September, much of October was spent sewing although looking at this mosaic I don`t feel like I accomplished as much as I wanted but isn`t that always the case?
Last month, I was pleased to get shot of a couple of UFOs in the shape of the Union Jack cushion, which I started back in February (I think) and absolutely love. I also finished the Marrakech Rose quilt.
Other highlights included being busy with the Scrappy Swap 2011 organized by Kat and which is now winding up. After the pink puffy pouch was rejected (by me for quality standardss - not my lovely partner who said she loved it), I sent her the Terrain fabric basket, some scraps and a couple of local items. They have a long way to travel and haven`t arrived yet. I hope she likes them.
I was also working on the fabulously fun Modern Tablerunner Swap being organized by Susan. Design done. Fabrics chosen. Just waiting on additional fabric ordered online for backing and binding. I`m lagging behind on this one but it will get done. Never fear.
I made a quilt top from Moroccan Mirage for the Duo QAL and it is basted and ready for quilting! On time on this one (after a massive catch up!)
What else? A fall tote bag made from fabric and pattern brought over by my lovely mum during her recent lurgy ridden visit, my second block and a remake of the first block for the Bloggers` BOM and now I have work to do for the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee. There`s my colour inspiration mosaic bottom left. My colours are purple (think deep amethyst and plum), orange and grey. No pink. When I saw the talent in this bee, there was an audible gulp. Have I got myself in too deep this time?
Linking up with Lynne over at Lily`s Quilts. Thanks as ever to Lynne for hosting this linky party. Hop over there and see the amazing talent out there. Lynne also hosts a Small Blog Meet Up every first day of the month so go and show your support to the smaller blogs and get following a few.
