First up is the Mouthy Stitches Swap. My Mama has assigned me a brilliant partner. I've done a bit of stalking, had a good rummage in my stash and come up with this.
A little braided panel for the front of the tote bag. I've had some lovely feedback from the others in the group and I'll be quilting it soon and making up the bag :)
Next up I just couldn't help myself signing up to the Pillow Talk Swap again, and I'm so glad I did. Again my Mama has given me a fantastic partner, and I dived into my extra special bag of teeny tiny scraps, pulled on my big girl pants, and started on this
A New York Beauty block, using the brilliant tutorial by Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations. I've spent a lot of today piecing and now it looks like this
I've got a bit more to add and then I'm planning a bit of hand quilting using perle cotton.
Somehow these swaps have made me abandon everything and they're all I can think about! I'm going to tear myself away for a couple of hours and try to get the house presentable, and make some dinner before anybody realises I've spent every spare minute of the last couple of days sewing and ignoring everything else!
