I've been a bit quiet again but that's because I've been busy :) I'm busy crossing a few things off my Resolved to Sew 2012 list Yay!
First up I've delivered my first PIF gift at last, what a great feeling to have finally made a start on this. Rachael at Sew Ray Me is the first recipient and I'm relieved to say she loves her gifts.
Take a look at Rachael's blog post her to see what she thought. Myself and Rachael have chatted quite a bit by email and lately on Twitter. If you want a great tweeter to follow you really should follow Rachael, sometimes on twitter it really is like talking to yourself but Rachael always makes time to reply and have a wee natter.
I'm now almost finished my second PIF gift and I know exactly what I'm making for the third one so it's full steam ahead.
Inspired by how well the pin cushion was received I thought I'd rustle up a few for the shop since it's sadly neglected at the moment. I do have a few more things in the pipeline and once I get my photos sorted they'll be listed asap.
Onto another 2 things on my list, a swap and paper piecing. I posted this set of design options on the Mouthy Stitches group and option c got the thumbs up. Of course this design includes paper piecing which I've not actually done before ....hmmmm maybe not the most sensible idea then, especially when the blocks will be tiny. I had a trial run at it and if you ignore the fact that the centre piece is back to front (duh!) it came out ok. Please also ignore the fabric used here I really was just grabbing things out of the scrap box without any thought. So this is top priority this week as I'm feeling a bit stressed that so many people are already finished yikes! In addition to this I also need to finish some custom order zippy purses and a quote for cushions. I might have to bribe the older kids to watch Jamie for a bit to get any of this done as once again they are on holiday all week.
So there we go progress on 3 counts just need to find some more hours in the day to get some swooning done, think that'll have to wait another week unless I give up sleeping altogether.
Bye for now
