This year I have decided not to take on too much, so I am doing just one hand sewing BOM and one machine sewing BOM. That way hopefully, I shall be able to keep up to date with things. I am also in a sewing group Siblings Together 2…
and as you may know if you are a regular reader of this blog, I am apt to go off (frequently) on a tangent at the drop of a hat.
I have however finished Januarys BOM's.Firstly the hand appliqué Floral Impressions block,
designed by the lovely Deborah Kemball, using fabrics by Oakshott and they are absolutly gorgeous fabrics to use.
Secondly the 2014 TQS BOM designed by Janet Stone called A to Z for Ewe and Me using only fabrics from my stash, (some of which aren't so gorgeous).
No resolutions have been made for 2014, just a few hopes i.e. I just might be able to finish just one of my UFO's, and I shop out of my stash if I possibly can.
So far so good.
The Elfin Way quilt is residing on the dining room table. It is basted and all ready for quilting lines to be drawn. At the moment, there is a little indecision going on, hand or machine quilting? I will have to decide soon as the dining room table is out of commission at the moment.
We are having a lovely sunny day here in this part of the UK, so I might just go and do a little tidying up in the garden..
Keep safe and keep stitching…..Doti...
