Brit Sewing Thursday Linky (17th October 2013)

Brit Sewing Thursday Linky (17th October 2013)

This week it feels like quite a lot has been achieved on the sewing front, but yet I have very few photos to share with you!

The Apple Day bunting is complete and fortunately it looks as though the weather may actually remain dry on Saturday for the event too. I was starting to have visions of my beautiful bunting out in the pouring rain! No photo of that because I’m saving the “reveal” till it gets used.

I’m also ploughing on with my Christmas quilt. Lots of cutting of fabric and nothing I can really share because it is a secret

I’ve also made progress with Carol’s block for the FQR Bee. Carol is making a quilt that has the theme ‘It’s A Wonderful World’ and she asked us Bee members to make a feature block on that theme and possibly a filler too. So I made my feature block but I wasn’t happy with it…. So now I’m making a new one…

Poor Carol even had to send me some more low volume fabric for the background – she probably wishes I’d just stuck with the brief!

I’ve also made the filler block too….

So it looks like Carol will get three blocks from me in the end! I really curse myself sometimes for my inability to walk away from a project before it’s right (I won’t say ‘perfect’ cause I never quite achieve that!)

You are not alone – I did a coaster swap recently and had to take apart the last one and remake the back because I wasn’t happy. The sad part happens when I fail to listen to the inner voice that tells me I don’t like something but force myself to complete the project – then everytime I look at it I am disappointed…

Beautiful blocks for Carol. I have opened the fabric packet and got absolutely no further.

Your bird is amazing. Sometimes we are too critical. Have a great weekend. Marie
