Slow Blogging + Fresh Sewing Day = not much to report!
Well, it’s taken me forever, but I’m beginning to have some more energy. This post is combining the wonderful Slow Blogger's linky over at Knotted Cotton with the equally wonderful Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing day:
It hasn't been a fab month really - what with hospital and pneumonia and concomitant steroid crazies - but this month I’ve managed my Designer Challenge for Christmas Fat Quarterly – I think I can give you a sneaky peek:
Other than that it’s just been EPP really … I’ve been slooooowly working on my gingham project and I’ve finally started to applique them to wonderfully soft medium weight dark grey linen …
Some of the blocks are Lynne@Lily'sQuilts wonderful Georgetown Carnival
… while others are just grandmother’s hexy flowers …
There are some square blocks and giant hexies too, but you’ll have to wait for them …
I also made myself a kindle sleeve in about 5 mins flat using some Echino and some gorgeous wool felt – exposed inside seams and everything, but it does the trick and looks great!
So much so that I started a few more for gifts … (but without the exposed seams this time!)
All in all not a tremendously productive month, considering this is usually my solid month for sewing, but I blame the steroids and antibiotics! They've pretty much rendered me useless other than very very slow hand sewing.
… go see what other more on it peeps have been freshly sewing here … or revel in some guilt free slow blogging here !
