April goal completed – #ALYoF

29 Apr

Not that many blog posts ago (2 to be precise) I set out my goal for April, to make 7 more shirts for the All Shirt Swap.

By the time we were ready to go to London for the wedding (16th) I had made none, so the evening before we left I was in need of some sewing therapy and stitched one up:

Last week I found time to cut out some fabric and stitch 2 more:

I hadn’t really planned to make 2 but I liked these fabrics and as I had some left from making one decided to another ‘in reverse’.

I had a workshop to teach on Saturday and had been a little bit stressed/anxious about it as I’d not officially taught paper piecing before, it went well and as a wind down I spent some of Sunday paper piecing more shirts:

And there are my seven shirts that I set as my goal for the month. I could have made more as I have some more cut but I ran out of copies of the pattern!

I might have a new favourite, I might not be able to send them all away to be swapped, only time will tell!  I hope your managing to meet any goals you have set yourself this month.
