I suspect that it is lack of organisation rather than just having too much on the go currently, but it does seem to be leaving me short of sewing time - bah!
I had wanted to finish the quilting on Mum's Quilt before this weekend as big sister Helen is visiting, and it is the first time that she has seen the quilt 'in the flesh' since we picked out the fabrics when she was last here in December.
I haven't completed the quilting though - but that did not stop us going back to the Cotton Patch to buy the fabric for the side pieces of this quilt, and it was a lovely day out all in all.
But just to show that I'm thinking about quilting even if I'm not actually doing it, here's a pic of some curtains that I bought in the charity shop the other day for £4.50. There's about 3m of cotton here - the linings are poly/cotton, but if I follow Donna's lead on the dressmaking front, I might try my hand and running up a blouse.
That's when I get a spare minute, obviously.
Summer, The Quilt - Julie of the The Crafty Quilter created this fun and smart quilt as a qal with tips and advice, and I joined in. I couldn't pass up this design; I love ...
