There has been lots of sewing happening around here lately. I am still working through my gift list for christmas.
It should be getting much shorter but it doesn't seem to be - Maybe that's because I keep setting myself more tasks - Oh well no harm in aiming as high as you can. I will be taking a closer look at my list today as time is steadily running out until the fat man comes down the chimney.
I am up to Block 4 of the 6 blocks for Mia's teddy bear quilt - It is starting to look like a reality.
For those of you that were asking about my studio change around, here it is. I still have the shelves to tidy up and a bit more de-cluttering but it is slowly getting there.
The biggest problem is that I only have a very small space. My studio is only 3 metres square so not a large area but I have it all stuffed in pretty tight.
Bolts of fabric are now stacked on the floor to give me some more creating space.
I like storage containers and have lots of them - I just need to label them so I know what's inside.
I have to admit to my studio not being quite as tidy as the photo's show. I set myself a task this weekend of making Sam a new quilt for baby No 3 which is due to be born in February.
After lots of cutting out and chain piecing
Pinning and seam matching
The new quilt was born.......
Chenille is so lovely and cuddly but boy is it messy to work with. We had to vaccum most of the surfaces in the studio as they were all chenilled.......
I purchased the kit to make this quilt about 2 years ago at the Craft Fair. So even though it is not strictly a UFO because I never started it - It is a stash finish which I am pleased with. I only have about 7 more kits to start now - LOL
I also made Sam lots of Cotton Burp Cloths - I made her some when she had Maddie and she just loves using them.
So after a weekend of sewing I was able to wrap up more than just one present - Can't show you any more as I know that I have spies :)
How are you going with your christmas list?
