The need to sew has been strong recently, maybe its the nesting instincts kicking in?
I have this very strong need to start on the little monster and the belly monsters quilts…but I’m forcing myself to finish off a few WIP (work in progresses) first 🙂
So this weekend I have finished off these 2 projects that I’ve been working on for some time now:
These are coasters for and EPP swap – I need to post these off to my partner soon and will write up a more detailed post on them at some later point too.
This is a quilted table runner that is to be a gift, I’m not giving it until June – but it is very nice to have it finished (finally – its been a WIP for at least 2 months!)
I have also been preparing the last part of my necessary clutch so I am able to join in with Selfish Sewing Week this week 🙂
I’m not sure how many “selfish” projects I will work on, but finishing this project is a MUST (its been in progress since selfish sewing week in september 2013!)
Also to fix the sew-craving to start on those quilts I have been doing some maths (with hubby help – thanks honey 😀 )…
I’m going to make the belly monster an economy block cot quilt and up-cycle the little monsters woollen cot blanket and use it as the bating, so I have a set finished size that I need the quilt to be…hence all the mind bending maths 😛 (well mind bending for me – thanks again hubby, you make it much easier 🙂 )
I’d also like all the centres of each of the blocks to be mostly fussy cut so the quilt can have a sort of eye spy feel to it.
Now I just to decide on which size blocks to make, my choices are either 5″ or 7″ – do you have any suggestions?
By far the biggest accomplishment this weekend has been successfully moving the little monster into his big boy bedroom! The pocket pillow I made him certainly helped 🙂 And now work can begin on setting up the belly monsters room – not that many changes need to be made 😛
