Good morning. How are you all? Again it has taken me an age to post. Life seemed to get in the way again, no excuses.
You might want to get a tea or coffee for this post, it’s going to be a long one.
2 weeks ago I went to a sewing day with my mum. It was organised my quilt group. Mum and I have never been to one before so We didn’t know what to expect.
It was a long and exhausting day but we had so much fun. I picked mum up half way (she lives one hour and 40 minutes away) and we set off.
The room was spacious and we had a very large table for the two of us. We were given gifts, there was a tombola and a raffle. The raffle was great as we were given jelly roll strips and had to make a block. When we had finished our block, the block was our raffle prize for all the blocks!
Here is my block
And all the blocks together
We didn’t win and that doesn’t matter it was fun to take part.
I completed 2 pillows on the day
I ached so much after the day. I’m not used to sitting at a machine for the day. We had an exhausting journey back to take mum and I didn’t get in until 9.30pm.
I’m still plodding along in my 365 projects and I’m so close. I have lots to show you.
Here are some more ornaments I have finished.
I made some autumn mini pillows for my dough bowl. I just wrote the words and embroidered them, and sewed them on to some tweed scraps.
I made an autumn wreath
I painted a pen pot at pottery
I painted some Christmas lanterns. The green one is huge!
I made a crochet hoop for my hoop wall
I made 4 autumn cushions from a duvet cover that was already quilted. Vintage St Micheals
I made pincushions with scraps of the above fabric
I made some gnomes from scrap yarn and toilet rolls.
I made some fabric crackers to fill some gaps in my tree.
I went to crop and made 2 scrapbook pages
I made my Halloween house for my tiered tray.
I made a taggie for a friend
A custard cream pincushion
And finally (for this post anyway) I made some dishcloths.
I have so much more to show you but I will leave for another post.
We are going to Portsmouth this afternoon to have dinner with Jake and to pick up Joseph. Joseph went to stay with Jake for the weekend.
In the car I will have one hour and 15 minutes on the way there isn’t uninterrupted crochet time. I really need to finish a baby blanket (about 10 rows and the boarder) as the baby is due tomorrow! I have finished the hat and booties already.
I have been making plans for 2023 and I can promise I will not be doing another 365!
