Patchwork Progress

One of the many reasons I returned to blogging was because posting about what I’m doing helps me notice my abandoned projects and makes me ask if I really want to complete them. One project that has been abandoned and I definitely want to finish is the quilt I started in April 2017.

The last time I posted about my progress on it was in May 2017. I’d just finished the middle section, attached a round of squares and had sewn two 12 patch blocks for the next round…

Project Progress – 25th April

Having cut out all the pieces for my quilt by 3rd April, progress ground to a halt as we went away for a long weekend followed by Easter at home with Family. I finally managed to start sewing the pieces together last Wednesday and have achieved my promised hour every day since then…

A new craft goal – and it’s not knitting

Several years ago LH was going to the market one Sunday morning when I asked him to get Mr Hicks a cheap fleece blanket. A couple of hours later he returned with this…

“My dog is NOT going to sleep on that!” said I, and I promptly shoved it at the back of a cupboard. Continue reading “A new craft goal – and it’s not knitting”
