Oh my, February was one frenetic month and was fairly selfless as nearly everything I made was for someone else - either one of the two swap makes (Mouthy Stitches and For the Love of Solids) or bee blocks (We Bee Modern Too and do.Good Stitches). There was definitely a green and yellow thing going on too!
The only thing I made for myself was the Gee`s Bend inspired mini, which I love. I made it as part of Jennifer`s super fun Modern Mini Challenge, the linky for which opens on Monday March 5. This is my entry. It has really inspired me to use solids more and to experiment with improv,piecing. The mini will hang in our kitchen and remind me that trying something new is fun!
I finally got my pouch finished for the Mouthy Stitches swap after the linen I needed finally arrived. It`s winging its way to my partner and I hope she likes it.
I`m really hoping that March will be more laid back. There were times last month when it was all beginning to feel like work (because vital supplies took an age to arrive which is all stress inducing believe me) and for me that`s not what it`s all about. So time for a breather.
Linking up with uber talented Lynne at Lily`s Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day. Do hop over and see what people have been up to the last 29 days and check out some great smaller blogs in the Small Blog Meet.
