|Husband's Birthday Cake (Carrot Cake)|
First of all, I have started work now on the Gail Pan BOM 'Wish You Well'. This is the project Gail has designed for 2020 for her i-stitch-club.
I really love the two blocks that have been released to date and have had a lot of fun using up some Tilda fabric scraps to complete them.
|January and February side by side|
I have also been excited to join in a Challenge set by Anne Brooke of H-anne-Made which is called 'sew4thesoulhannemade'.
|January's additions and stitching|
It is basically using up a scrap of batting (wadding) and adding scraps of fabrics, trims and anything else you would like and then adding texture using stitching.
|February's additions and stitching|
It is such a liberating thing to work on as you can just follow your heart and add fabric scraps and stitching to please just yourself. Here is a closer look.
I will probably make my piece of 'textile' into a bag of some sort. As I have just treated myself to Anne's new book 'Textile Wanderings' I may even use it as a book bag to keep it in!!
I am also awaiting news of a new arrival in the family. My second grandchild is expected any time now and I can't wait!! So, I have also been looking at ideas for a new baby quilt.
So far, I have made a trial QAYG (quilt as you go) block which I am very pleased with. So I shall have to get my skates on a make a few more!!
Thank you for visiting and until next time.....
