Made in August

1 Sep

School holidays and sunshine did not make it the most productive month, but still I found some time to sew:

Made in August

Most of the quilt top was made before August started but it’s definitely an August finish (on the top not the whole quilt!).  More paper piecing in the shape of a digger (pattern testing for Kristy) and the And Sew On BOM.  Some selfish sewing with pyjama bottoms for me, I joined in the Star Surround QAL and had fun with the Siblings Together Bee block.

It felt like much of the month was spent organising, sorting, carrying fabric downstairs and working out how to use my new space:

Sewing space - aerial

Then there was sewing of other ‘stuff’ that I’ve yet to blog about:



But my favourite creation this month even though no sewing was involved, is this:

New stairs - after decoration

Yes my vintage sheet stairs!  If you want to know more read this and there is even a little ‘how to’ if you want to do the same.

I’m hoping that with the return of the girls to school in a weeks time and the increase in hours of my boy at preschool I’ll have more time to sew or even paint the kitchen/sewing room/downstairs shower room!

Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day at Lynne’s for a peek at what everyone else has done with their summer.
