Slowly hand quilting my hexies pillow, I think I am putting off finishing it b/c making a pillow is alien to me but my bloggy mates have assured me it's very easy! I am pleased to say I am nearly finished.
I have finished my first non square quilt top. I used a pattern from Quilt While you are Ahead which I came across in Sew Hip magazine.
I am busy making baby balls in preparation for a proposed Xmas Fair at my work so I really am doing smaller things at the moment in between orders.
My friend Sarah from Fairyface Designs and I did a tutorial swap. Sarah did a bunting tutorial (I so want to make bunting) .
and I did a tutorial on covering a button with fabric
For any Irish readers who are following/reading my blog you may be interested in the Sew Irish flickr group run by Sarah and myself. I am very pleased to say that our numbers are increasing. The only criteria are that you need to live in Ireland and sew. You can be a beginner / novice or expert. The more the merrier!
That's it for me winding down for a couple o' weeks holidays now so I won't be posting till September! Have a good couple of weeks everyone!
As usual I am linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday linky party, where you will find plenty of WIP's all very inspiring!
