Well I've settled into January. There's no cut backs for me this month, it's total hibernation time. I'm surrounded by Patchwork & Wool and maybe a sneaky Damson Gin too :) I don't know how it happens but my projects seem to spread around the living room, my poor suffering family. I doesn't help with the announcement from my youngest son "this house is getting way to girly". Sorry about that.
So I know Christmas seems so long ago but did you manage to get any projects started/finished. I must admit I did get some time to make & ponder new projects. I finished my Poncho, knitted a new hat (whilst watching Puss in Boots on Boxing Day), started on a new Poncho, finished a Patchwork cushion & started on our new "Sew Now" block of the month quilt. I'm very excited about this new project. It'll be a combination of Patchwork (EEP) and Appliqué. We'll also be quilting as we go. It's all very exciting. You can make this at the "Sew Now" sessions held at the Shop.
- This is a Bergere Pattern.
I bought the Wool from A Good Yarn -
My eldest son bought the Wool & Needles
for me for Christmas from Love Knitting
I had the front of my second patchwork cushion finished about 4 months ago. I finally got round to putting on the back!
I'm so pleased with the result of my UFO (un-finished objects).
A matching pair of handmade cushions.
(You can make your own at my sewing sessions)
This is the first quilt as you go square. A different block is made for each month. - Make this at the Sewing sessions -
There's also some lovely new fabrics for 2016.
I've added Blend Fabrics - Faraway Forest -
"a whimsical woodland collection by Lizzie Mackay. Charming critters, dainty flora, scenic views and her signature parade of animals set in a palette of soft, earth tone colours create the perfect canvas for your next sewing project".
I hope you've all enjoyed some creative time over these winter months.
