My mum and dad have kindly taken the kids for a sleepover this weekend, so I got time to do not much but order cross stitch stuff and get annoyed about car hire companies and how you need a credit card for the guarantee (that's another long winded story that probably isn't worth listening to but took 2 days to sort) but this morning is such a bright and cheerful day, after cleaning floors, windows and now after lunch i'm going to take the dog for a long muddy walk.
So probably not much sewing done.
But I have taken photo's of what I want to get finished this quarter. Most of these have languished in cupboards because I really can't be naffed or want to quilt them but not sure how, etc etc...
So No 1,
So needs bordering, quilting and binding.
My long suffering Lozanges need to be appliqued onto my sew mama sew background and made into a super long bolster pillow. It's going to be sitting on our spare room (once dh builds our room) bed and as it's red, grey and white in there, this will be perfect.
Not sure if I need to quilt it or not, what do you think???
This one has sat for I think over a year now, it needs quilting, it's not big I just need to get on and do it but I don't know how. *stumped*
Finally, the evil women that loiter on IG have got me going on the #economyblockalong and I don't want this going into the next quarter, so I have
17 more blocks to make and then it must be quilted and bound.... It's a super scrappy vomitty type quilt for DD, she chose the centre blocks so most are girly and then we just grabbed lots of stash and cut it into triangles. I'm not *choosing* the surrounds, just grabbing a triangle whatever colour or style, so it may be very bizarre by the end.
I think 6 things are quite enough to manage in the next few months, If I get two or three of them done it'll be an achievement. I'm hoping we'll be having lots of plastering to do, decorating and finishing of rooms. DD may finally get her bedroom in this quarter, I *might* get a finished frame room and there will be another bathroom to clean *sigh* but it's all good :)
Thanks to Katy for hosting this year and to fab sponsors.
