Winter Stitching plans conclusion

28 Apr

Right time to review my list and see what I managed to achieve over the last 5 months encouraged by Sarah at Fairyface Designs.

1. Gift voucher for Pink Castle Fabrics duly spent (confession: I’ve not cut into any of the fabric I bought yet though).

Here are numbers 2, 3, 6 and 11 which I had completed by the mid term review back in January:

Number 4 on my list was to make a quilt for Leah, I had no idea at the time of writing that I would be able to proudly tick that off the list. I joined in the Oh My Stars quilt along late, it started in December and I discovered it mid January but jumped on board and got cutting. I finished the quilt just over a week ago and I am delighted with it:

5. Nintendo DS bag, little progress made on this, possibly due to the fact that it requires a fair bit of brain power!

6. Another tick, I bought Jeni’s drawstring bag pattern and have made a fair few of these, some for Tobi and some for me!

Lined drawstring bags - snack and tiny

7. Tutorial for flower brooch – scrapped for now.

8. Soft books made for Christmas presents:

So I feel I’ve done pretty well, I’ve done a few other things too!

I’ve joined in the Zakka Style sew along:
