I have lists of lists


I've been busy doing family things as well as sewing whenever I get a chance. I have so many projects on the go it's hard to keep track, I seriously have a million lists right now. I crazily keep adding things I have to make because I love them/want them/need them, I want to try something new or because I need to gift things. I thought I was getting projects checked off but apparently not fast enough.

Anyway I've done some stuff...

All caught up on the How Far Will You Go? QAL:





I also let the little one loose on the scraps and she had fun gluing, talking about colours and making shapes. Fun game when you don't know what to do with those little extra bits!


One more Vintage Holiday QAL block done too:


I'm working on some things I can't show you yet but all in good time... ok maybe just a sneaky peek:


I'm joining in a couple of blog hops next month, click below to learn more! They are both going to be awesome:

Donktober                 

Stayed tuned for some great tutorials and projects!

I also joined another Bee, how could I not when it's being run by the fabulous Helen, Nicky and Sheila! There are a wonderful group of women in the Bee, all very talented and inspiring so I'm thrilled to be part of it. It's kicking off in January and, thanks to Nicky (who reminded me I will be giving birth that month) that's my month to chose a block, so thinking cap on and all suggestions welcome! Also really love the premise of the Bee's creation... that it's scrappy and UK based so I can save some pennies :)

Bee a Brit stingy


For spending on loveliness like this glittery Kokka text fabric from Pink Castle Fabrics I got recently (totally blaming Katy and her bloody What's New British/American Pussycat - where she lures us into sales and gorgeous new fabric lines from lovely online shops!!)


But it's so sparkly and pretty... and look it even has a message for me in it!!


Better lay off all those potato cakes, cheese and crisps then. Current craving is for jars of baby puddings... mostly fruit puree ones. Don't even ask, my husband thinks I'm totally bonkers!!

  3. Some lovely blocks there! Love the colours/fabrics you've chosen!

    My kids love playing with scraps too! I don't quite love the resulting clean up as much though.

  5. Those first blocks are beautiful - I wonder if I could catch up in that QAL?? I love the scrap art too - great idea! I'm in Katy and Laura's blog hop as well so have to get thinking cap on for that one. Off to ponder...

  6. Love the new star block :) I don't think you're bonkers, though. I keep those baby fruit purees knocking around for a healthy snack. The squeezy pouches are great when I'm travelling. I got the idea when I was in France - over there, the fruit purees are marketed to adults too!

  7. Love the blocks you've made! Seeing your Vintage Holiday blocks is making me want to start one of my own.

    And those lists are tricky. I really think they just rearrange themselves when we aren't looking to get bigger.

  13. Ohio I wanted that shiny text too, but then my shiny new sewing machine keeps looking at me reminding me that I can't buy anything!

  14. I carry an exercise book around at work so that I can add to my lists as I go :-( (yes, that makes me slightly sad!)
    Loving the blocks lately, and the text fabric is ace :-)

  16. Don't knock the baby food, our wee g/daughter is weaning and I am developing quite a taste for pureed butternut squash!
    Can't wait for the lumpy stuff.

  18. That Katy she's such an enabler, I'm kind of dreading sharing a room with her at Sewing Summit, I may end up bankrupt ;o)

    Anywho, love the blocks and the wee one's creations
