Good Morning, its been a busy weeks in my little sewing studio. I have been sewing lots and getting a few things made. Recently I have rediscovered my love of cross stitch, I used to to this years ago when my boys were little then I got bored and quilting kind of took over. You know how it is . Sometimes you need to move onto new things. Well I stitched this cute little design which is now waiting to be made up into a pear shape. It was such a fun project. I had forgotten though how slow cross stitch can be. What other hobbies did you have before you started quilting? I'd love to know.
I have started a new English paper piecing quilt, this one is called Smitten by Lucy Kingwell. Its a gorgeous design and I am very much enjoying making these blocks. My theme is red, white & blue.
Of course I had to have some new fabrics for my new quilt, (wink wink) I love these prints.
I also had to have the new Little Ruby Collection by Bonnie & Camille, this range is beautiful, No plans yet as to what I'll make but you can be sure I'll find something.
I have also been busy sewing christmas blocks for a new magazine project, its hard to think about Christmas when Easter is just around the corner and in 3 short weeks I'll be in the amazing USA on holidays. But I'm staying focused and trying to sew as much as I can.
Here is my new addition to my sewing room, I have been looking for a nice side board/cupboard for ages and finally found one. I wanted something i could sand back and then paint white, so last weekend we got to this stage, I can't wait to show it off next week all shiny and new.
And last but not least I designed and made this sewing machine cover for a class i will be teaching a bit later on, I love these Sweet water fabrics. So modern and fresh looking.
Ok, thats all my show and tell for this week, I hope you have a wonderful day and you find some sewing time, thankyou for stopping by.
