The months are flying by as they seem to do once you get over about 30...... As if there is enough sewing time without that happening???
Blogger has given me headaches this month but freed up my time for sewing when I couldn't get online or comment on my favourite blogs. I have missed not getting to (email & comment) talk to you all as much as usual but hopefully blogger is fixed so it will be all go for June. I need my inspiration & motivation by seeing all the amazing things you make & a laugh at your happy goings on.
I have been busy with sewing though & seem to have gone hexie flower crazy. My goal was 12 but it appears I have finished 40 this month. My dilema is that they do not go together & I haven't made a scrappy quilt so am feeling very unnerved at the thought of these 52 flowers being in 1 quilt.
I joined the WA Quilters Guild finally this year at the Quilt Show & last Friday went to the Guild Hexie &Crazy Quilt Club. Wow, some amazing talent there & crazy quilting is on the 'to do' list. They assured me that if I brought in a sheet, lots of pins & my flowers with me once all completed, we could put it on the wall & place them together and I would be very happy. Great idea.
This pic in the March Issue of Real Living Magazine helped too, the flowers are bigger & there are none of Leanne's beautiful stitchery hexies but the colours are bold & random and I still love it so there is hope for mine yet.
I finished my next two Tis The Season blocks for the online Stitch-a-long;
I have sewn my three reject TTS blocks in to a wall hanging but it is missing something so until I decide what, it isn't quite finished. Block 3 stitchery of the Retro Nine Patch is finished & I have almost finished another Life is Beautiful stitchery (will be completed later tonight).
I also made myself a sewing machine cover using quilt as you go. That was a new learning curve but if you don't look too hard at the back you can't tell it is slightly out of alignment. At least this project was my trial so I now know what to do & what not to do. I love the fabric & its been in my stash since the first quilt fair I went to about 6 years ago. It has the Brun cat seal of approval too.
I also made this little pillow for my little mate Megs whose family I spent Mothers Day with - such fun! It says 'The Value of a Mothers Love, Can Not Be Measured, Only Treasured'. Perfect for mummy Megs!
My two fur-boys are loving having the gas fire going at night & I am loving having them both closeby. Little old Brun's athritis is playing up in his back legs but we try to keep it at bay with doses of fish oil & his napping the day away on mums electric blanket.
Honey's favourite day bed is on his recliner with his blankie & his girlfriend. She's the strong, silent type but nice to cuddle up too.
Happy June to you all!
