After the long festive break and all our secret sewing throughout December, welcome to the first sewing linky of 2014!
I did some thinking over Christmas about whether to continue with this linky and if so how to make it better. You may have noticed that I now keep it open all week and that will continue, meaning that you can join in on any day of the week not just Thursday, but are there other things I could do?
Are there ways we could spread the word and encourage more Brit sewers to join us? Do let me know. My head is in many places at the moment and it is entirely possible I may miss the obvious…
The first project to share with you this week is my completed doll quilt for DQS 14 on Flickr. It started out being called a “wonky windmill” quilt, but I have renamed it my “Can Can Mini Quilt” as when I look at it all I see now is high kicking legs! Maybe that’s just me?
This will be in the post to my partner at the end of the week along with some local chocolate (Montezumas!) a quilting magazine and something for the small person in her life. I’ll take a photo of it all together before I mail it.
I have also been playing catch up with my blocks for the FQR Bee. Currently working on Kathie’s December blocks, with Liz’s January log cabins next in line.
After the rush of Christmas if you have a lull in your sewing schedule, do consider entering the X Factor Pillow Swap on Flickr. My most favourite swap because you make what you want and get a pillow assigned based on the points yours scores (not anywhere nearly as scary as it sounds) the deadline is January 25th and some of the entries already are lovely!
