March projects

31 Mar

March seemed to be a really long month, mostly very cold and draughty with some sewing!

I squeezed in some paper piecing before we ‘lost’ the dining room:

Kitchen Scales

Blog post about them here.

Just Spoolin' Around

I joined in the Orbit QAL and completed the whole quilt not just the top.  All made from wonderful vintage sheets.

I started and finished 2 other quilts, here’s a quick peek of one:

The other one I don’t have any photo’s of, it’s for Siblings Together.  More details on both to come.

I was able to attend the first Sewing Directory meet up which was a wonderful afternoon with a group of lovely ladies.  I’ve not blogged about it but Fiona, Kerry and Rachel have.  I don’t have a great deal to add to what they said, you had to be there really, but it was fun to sit and sew and chat, to catch up with friends and to meet some ladies in the flesh who I know online.  There will be a bit more about it in my next vintage sheet post.  It was truly great, so much so that Fiona is already onto organising the next one for Exeter in the Autumn.  If there is one you can get to then I’d highly recommend it, the next one is in London on 27th April.

I squeezed in a commission for a earbud pouch, it all happened so quick and was in the post before I could take a photo, so it looked like this but with a pink zip and a pink Sherbet Pips lining:

And I may just have started cutting up leftovers from my vintage sheet charm to make a Scrappy Trips quilt.

So despite the state of our house I feel like I’ve managed to achieve quite a lot this month, for those of you who don’t know it looks a bit like this:

We have no kitchen or dining room, so are living in the living room (with the dining room table, chairs and a cupboard), the 3 children are sharing a room and the newly vacated bedroom is our temporary kitchen.

Next month?  Who knows, but there is a Spring Quilt Festival next weekend which a few of us locals are planning to go to on Saturday, meeting up with Katy and showing her the sights of the south (or maybe just dinner!).  If you’re local too and fancy joining us please let me know.
