when we all say 'where did May go?'! I don't know but it was a good month of sewing...
Tiny Dancer quilt, 'bow tie' hair clip bag, oven glove, headband, English Paper Pieced pincushion, thread basket - I've done well making useful things this month!
As I was looking through my makes I realised there's been a couple of things I haven't blogged about...
I made a drawstring play mat for my son's best friend. He is using it to keep Lego in!
I used the fabulous pattern by Tickle and Hide. It really is a great pattern, full of wonderful tips and this came together so easily. I did add a popper to the sides that meet so the top would close and Lego wouldn't spill out! The fabric is from Terrys Fabrics and is home dec weight so it should withstand some wear and tear! I used Sail Stripe in Marine and Panama in Red.
For some reason I took pictures before I did the appliqué (I think I was excited!) but I did blanket stitch Lego on one side and needle turned a Lego head with embroidered eyes and mouth on the other.
I also completed an order for another custom personalised reward chart in pretty pinks:
Yesterday I got the amazing news that I have won a prize in the Hand Quilting category of the Blogger's Choice Festival for my Bees of a Feather Quilt. Many thanks to everyone that voted and congratulations to my bloggy friends that also won! It was a lot of fun seeing all the incredible talent and beautiful quilts in the festival. Thanks again to Amy for organising the event!
