July’s projects

1 Aug

It’s the first of August, summer, the promise of long, hot days relaxing in the garden – ok maybe not but I can dream!

It is definitely time for Lily’s Quilts Fresh Sewing Day though.

Lily's Quilts

I have no idea where July went, it seemed to zoom by in days of rain and exhausted children, but I do believe there was some sewing too and the sun did start to shine.

Most if not all of it was great fun, commissions, a pattern review, birthday and end of school year gifts and a sample for a quilt kit:

I also ran my first proper workshop/class, I’ve done informal sewing evenings before for charity, but this was proper paid work!  It was a purse frame workshop held at Arrietty a wonderful new shop in Exeter that is running a number of sewing and non sewing workshops including a ukulele workshop!  I really enjoyed doing it and all 6 students made gorgeous purses.

It’s the school summer holidays here now so it will be interesting to see if I have anything to show next month!

Go on over and check out what others have been sewing this month.

  1. Congrats for running a workshop! I really want to get into teaching someday. Everything in your mosaic is adorable! I love the wall letters!

  2. Busy bee Mary, you’ve made some fab things. Can’t be bad eh, proper paid work – well done. Enjoy August xx

  3. Lovely. I genuinely don’t know how you do it. But I’m inspired to get some sewing done today if it kills me (well, not quite that extreme!)

    I like the ball and the name bunting the best. How do you stop the edges on the name bunting from fraying? Can’t see how it could be sewed wrong-sides then turned round. Is it bondaweb or something similar?
