Hi all :) I can't believe it is June already. I I didn't even manage a single update last month!!! I shall be so glad when my 2 current tafe courses are finished. I find they are taking up a lot of time and don't leave me much time or motivativation for other sewing or blogging. I did manage to catch up on a couple of things though, one of which was sending out a dozen or so patterns of the finally named Baby Snug Seat to some ladies on the forum I belong to. A number of the ladies sent me gifts as a thank you; here are some of the things I received:
How spoilt am I?? Thank you so much, ladies. I feel very spoilt by your generosity.
Just recently the subject of UFO's came up on the forum and, like most of us in the quilting world, I have a number hidden away in a basket that I try to ignore. However, as I am not feeling up to either completing or starting any large projects due to the aforesaid tafe courses, I thought that it would be a good time to try and finish a couple of the smaller projects that were sitting around. I am pleased to say I have completed 2 small items, so I am feeling quite pleased with myself. The first was a tote bag ... my first, and it didn't turn out too bad, though larger than I was expecting.
I'm really happy with it because I can use really long pins and still not practice body piercing on myself. I couldn't decide what to stuff it with so I used a combination of sawdust, toy stuffing and rice.
