Goal for September

3 Sep

It’s September; my girls go back to school next week and my little boy starts school; part-time for a couple of weeks so my days will be a little bit disrupted but then full time by the end of the month.

In theory this should leave me a lot more time to sew but right now I have no idea if that will be the case. I have lists in my head of all the things that need doing in the house I don’t want to list them here for fear of being overwhelmed.  So I’m going to be gentle with myself for September.  I’ve done very little EPP (English Paper Piecing) preferring the speed of the machine, but as we’re on holiday for a week without my sewing machine I’ve decided to give it a go.

I’ve long admired this project in 1, 2, 3 Quilt by Ellen Luckett Baker:

So I’ve cut my fabric and my papers and I’m ready to go.

There are just 36 hexagons that I need to baste and sewn together, I don’t think that should be too difficult.  The rest of the bag is pretty straight forward and I’ve already got a pair of bamboo handles I bought from a charity shop a long while ago so I’m aiming to finish it this month!

  1. I have a list a mile long that I’ve told myself I’ll attack in the month I have off before the baby is due, I think I’m slightly delusional as to how long a month actually is, and god forbid this one comes early! Good luck with the bag but I have a feeling that the unseasonal nice weather we had in this part of the world last week might have curtailed your hand sewing time?
