my list included
a christmas item- fail, though I did prepare a pile of stitcheries to make throughout the year and I also signed up for a Christmas swap, Will that count?
Block 5 Down in the garden
Well I am nearly half way through. I started off by stitching the same thing all way round, eg the centres of the flowers and it felt is wasn't progressing at all so I decided to start in a corner and work my way around. I feel it is growing much quicker.
Next on the list was my Swan Lake quilt....
I have a total of 26 dollies cut out ready to applique and have made 14 hexagon flowers. Just need to pluck up the courage to cut in to the 9 metres of backing fabric.... Maybe next holidays, in the meantime I will have to set some targets for some more dollies and flowers.
Jack and Jill was a big tick off my list as it was hand quilted and delivered to a very grateful recipient.
Lastly on my list was to make up the cross stitch kits I received for christmas.
Got a little excited there and have made 5 pincushions.
I had an issue with my first two when stitching up the 'stuffing hole' and Lisa (at the Quiltery) suggested that I put a seam in the back fabric of the pincushion so I gave it a try and they have a nicer shape. I also managed to hide the seam with a piece of trimming. Thanks for your tip Lisa.
There was also an unplanned January project..... Appliqueing and quilting this wall hanging for No 1 son to hang in his class room. Mum pieced the top and it looks pretty snazzy. He is very happy with his hanging and I am relieved it is done.
Not everything was achieved but there were those little distractions thrown in.
It all comes out in the wash...
Now to make a list for February!
