July felt a bit meh to me. Loved what I've made but feel like I could have made more progress, though I probably always feel that way. I think there's a severe lack of actual quilts, I love small makes but it's not as satisfying as a quilt finish.
I finished a buggy bag for us to carry nappies etc in, a buggy liner for a friend, a tea towel for new neighbours and scrappy cards for anyone I think deserves one.
My favourite finish has to be my foot stool, every time I use it I smile:
I did manage a couple of other finishes this past couple of days, both commissions.
The first was on my FAL list, two sweet dresses made from Tula Pink fabric - which is just perfect!
An embroidered cushion, which was ordered by a returning customer - that's such a great feeling.
Then I finally got my July Bee a Brit Stingy bee blocks sent off to Charlotte today, made using her brilliant tutorial:
I hope she loves them, if not she can send them back to me because I do!
Actually writing this post has made me feel a little less meh. I think having 3 kids at home all the time (especially on a rainy day like today) means that when it gets to the evening I just feel like lying in a darkened room, alone and in silence. I may well do that but there's sewing to do and I'm working on whipping up some samples for classes I will be teaching. This is a fabric pull for a cushion I'm planning:
I'm excited about it and fingers crossed it works as I hope!
I have finished my rose star quilt top but between the kids and the rain I've not been able to get a proper photo yet, hopefully I can share it with you soon.
