Fresh Sewing Day

It's going to be my first year trying to blog every day due to BlogtoberFest, Shells in the bush is hosting this year,
This is how it works :-

Blogtoberfest is an annual blogging festival and a wonderful opportunity to:

* challenge yourself to blog every day for 31 days in October 2013
* discover kindred blogging spirits
* carve out a tiny slice of time each day to write and to read
* share any creative projects you have on the go
* host a giveaway, if you feel inclined to spread the love

This is not a blog hop, so whilst you do not have to visit everybody who joins it would be great to pop in and visit other bloggers and encourage them along the way!

NEW! Blogtoberfest 2013 daily/weekly prompts:

Monday: Mosaic Monday - make a photomasiac to show and write about

Tuesday: Talkative Tuesday - tell us about yourself

Wednesday: Wordless Wednesday - post a photo and no words

Thursday: Thankful Thursday - write about what you are thankful/grateful for, Throwback Thursday

Friday: Friends on Friday - write about another creative you admire, Flashback Friday

Saturday: Some/Six/Seven Thoughts on Saturday

Sunday: Sunday Snippets (started by {tinniegirl}) - My week in photos... A collection of photos from your week. No need for words. Let the pictures tell your story.

.... Well considering it's Talkative Tuesday, let's just say I generally talk lots but today isn't really the day for it :) but I will talk about what I achieved sewing wise in September.

Lily's QuiltsIt doesn't look a huge amount but I've got 2 secret sewing projects finished which will be revealed during October.  I spent loads of time sorting out patchwork club block of the months and searching for things we can do by hand and/or machine.  Lots of handwork as my back's been bad and one quilt not yet upto flimsy stage.
So 5 blocks, 2 pincushions and some Christmas embroidery. Oh and our definitive electricity finally got installed, so a fairly good month :)
