Glad March has gone!

It wasn't the most fun month, we were ill and I've been exhausted. The highlights were my son's birthday and the fun of the Stale Stash Swap.
Yet again I'm surprised with what I've managed to make this month - really I say that every time!!

I have a suspicion that I'm starting to find my own style, this mosaic seems brighter and more fun to me than some I've done before. Maybe because there's more kid stuff in there! Here's what I got done in March:



This month I'd love to work on making more things I love, developing my style and getting things finished (Stained qal *ahem*).  I'm also joining in the Retro Flowers QAL and want to finally get round to machine paper piecing something!! Also I'm hoping to finally get round to making my first cushion attempts!

I've not been great at commenting on peoples blogs recently, I can only apologise and with the Easter holidays in full swing here I will try my best to keep up but kids must come first!!

Linking up to Fresh Sewing Day and Sew Modern Monday

  4. I seriously love your mosaic! If you've found your style, I have to say I like it :o)
    PS hope you are all feeling better. It's somehow transferred itself through the interwebs to the other side of the world - I have tonsillitis and the small peeps all have colds. Sigh.

  8. That mosaic is a lovely bright spot on what is a dark, wet, horrid day today. I love your hexagon park (I loved making mine) and embroidery in particular. I hope April is a better month!
