However, there are two very good reasons for that - distraction and convalescence! And I can assure you this mega-activity probably won't last once I'm back to work full time!
Finishes this month include:
- Sew Stitchy and Cherry Christmas reversible sewing machine cover - see it here
- Summersville Go Anywhere bag - that's here
- Summersville wallet - that will be over here
- Yet another Summersville bag - it's turning into a bit of an addiction, as this post shows - by the way doesn't the lining photo in that post remind you of a shark mouth...?
- and lastly a project for someone that I can't show you yet as it is destined for big things, but which more than tested my sewing superpowers, but I did win out in the end!
WIP's are mainly my raw circle applique quilt, which is coming along really nicely. Am loving the colours and enjoying hand quilting the free-style spirals (well, spiral-ish!). I've given this a plain red backing and I'm thinking of binding it in orange magic beans, but that's yet to be decided. And then there's my fabulous brown batik challenge that I need to get finished to show my friend Charlotte I can work with anything...

Plans in mind include something interesting to do with the Ruby Star Vinyl records, when I hopefully get some; making a start on my niece's third birthday quilt using the Sew Stitchy panel, some Heather Ross fabrics and whole load of other bits and pieces; joining in the Japanese Charm swap and working out my block and fabric requirements for my bee month in November - I want to do something similar to the block Megan showed on her blog although whether they'll turn out quite so gorgeous remains to be seen!
Lastly, a small matter of a paper pieced block to make before the next LMQG meeting on Sunday - for someone who professes to be a slow blogger, I don't half like leaving things to the last minute!
Linking up with Catherine at Knotted Cotton for the inaugural Slow Bloggers linky party & shamefully doubling up for Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day.
