Bit late to Fresh sewing day party

Yes I'm late to May's sewing day
Lily's Quilts
and I'm even more shocked by what I've actually got done in May. I feel quite exhausted looking at it to be honest, no wonder June is going to be paperwork catch up and Fat Quarterly retreat prep. I'm also now 2 months behind on my cross stitch sampler so really need to find time to get that done and I'm  in a postcard swop that needs to go in the post by the 14th June at the very latest.

Two quilts were quilted and bound ready to take to UK and donate to Siblings together. There was a fun final Euro Siblings quilt block, It seems that it might be the last block we make for the bee, unless a group of us can get together with some other euro's to makeup the numbers, is anyone interested ??
I finally made my mind up on the selvedge cushion to be or not to be and teamed it with some New York Beauty blocks to make  a cute wallhanging for my sewing room, a FAL WIP too so double win :)
A complete gingerbread house was constructed, decorated, destroyed and consumed.
I made a cute little hexi bag which I must try and remember to blog about this week and a pen basket that was going to be a teachers gift but i'm really not sure about it, currently dossed in a cupboard lol 
My Nested churn dash quilt also just slips into May by the skin of it's teeth. It was made in a week from start to finish so a lovely end to May, which brought me into my 39th year.... I'm climbing up to the summit of that hill and will be rolling down it next year ;(

  1. you have been productive, re the siblings quilt we are doing them at the Leeds MQG,, unfortunately I will not be there though as it clashes with the Yorkshire MQG this month. Maybe you could link with is as I know you know some of us allready

  2. Well done you. What a lot you got.

  3. exhausted you must be, yes!
    What do you mean by "rolling down"? Things don't all go downhill once you're 40! Although it might seem that way from your point of view/side of the hill
    See ya soon!

  4. You have done loads. I seem to be behind on just about everything at the moment!!

  5. Congrats on all you have gotten done! That's a lot for one month!! Turning 40 isn't so bad as long as you don't overthink it :)

  6. Thanks for one's marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed

    bookmark your blog and will come back later in life.
