So today I can blog because today I sewed something. A whole quilt top in fact!
I'd pulled the fabric for this from my stash and cut it into the strips needed over a month ago now. All the fabric came from my stash. I am on a fabric diet (not that I checked in last month. I didn't by fabric though!) so I had to shop my stash for this one and it worked out really well because it forced me to use some fabrics I'd sort of been hoarding. I used the instructions from here to make the blocks. I know I'm really behind jumping on this particular band waggon. I usually am behind with these things!
This is destined to be a present and I will back it that famous Ikea numbers print everyone uses and have a rummage in my stash for suitable binding.
I hope to try and stop by more often. And sew more often. Sometimes the niff naff and trivia of life gets in the way. There are some potentially life changing things happening over the next few months. It feels exciting and exhausting in equal measure. In the mean time I have wadding to cut for this quilt and backing to iron. I'm sort of on a deadline with this one. Hope you've all had a good Saturday too.
