September 2012


The six weeks school holiday disappeared so quickly, I didn’t get much of my own sewing done. Laura and I did a number of sewing projects together, she really likes all the Tilda Studio books and she made a list of bits she wanted to make, with help from Mum!!!


Laura also wanted a Rag doll – not a normal one but a ‘fashion’ one, that she could make modern and historical costumes for (mainly Tudor)!!! We had a look at a number of Rag Doll patterns but none where right, so I drew up one she wanted. The problem is I have also had to draw up the clothes patterns – so far she has PJ’s and dressing gown!!!!


During August and our trips away I did managed  to get all the fabric I wanted for the two teaching quilts. For the machine made blocks design I have gone for Stonehenge range – looks like stone – I got this in Quilt Essentials in Cromford Derbyshire. While there I also got some batiks for the floral quilt. The rest of the fabric I got in Log Cabin in Brentwood. Was really wanting to do the floral quilt in colours other than my favourites of pink/lilac and purple but I ended up with these colours – as usual!!!!


The Double Wedding ring quilt is machine quilted and just the hand quilted hearts to be add – might not be completely finished in time for our anniversary but it will be mostly done!!!
