This week has been mostly about...

...playing hooky catch-up! What with the move I'd fallen behind (by nearly a month at one point - eek!) but have now finished October and am starting on November. Yay!

But wowsers, those ends have gotten away from me again! There's going to have to be a lot of darning of ends done soon - I've got some long car journeys coming up when I think this will be the perfect activity! Hopefully I'll get some full blanket pictures for you (ends and all!) later in the week

...finishing up a patchwork cushion I'd started a little while ago with some scrappy binding. I'm really pleased with how this came out and am looking forward to doing a proper ta-da on it as I did go on a bit of a journey with it!

...starting another EPP project! I found patchwork really theraputic so with a small bundle of fabric that I'd picked up at the Knitting and Stitching Show and my new fabric glue pen (which is awesome!) I made a start on another project using Katy's Spring Carnival pattern

I cut and prepped some of the pieces on Thursday night and this is where I've got to so far. So much fun!

...having family fun on a day trip to Monmouth yesterday (one of my favourite places!) and another family walk today, enjoying the glorious sunshine that we've been having

I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend too, 


Todays sky ● beautifully blue

Your blanket is looking great! Good luck with the ends - they're never fun. Your patchwork is beautiful, I like the hexagons. Thank you for the tip about storing fabric deals. I had thought of keeping squares of fabric, but couldn't think how to attach the details to them - sticking them in a book is genius!!

Lovely pics of your WsIP! Can't wait to see your finished sky blanket! I just so love the fact that it's unpredictable and is dictated afresh every day! Your fabric glue pen sounds rather useful - does it replace basting? If so, what a dream for paper piecing! Enjoy! E x

You'll have to tell me how you get on with the scrap book - I love the idea of it and looking back in a few years. Would be a great history document! x

THe glue pen is fab E - it's by Sewline, replaces basting and is completely washable. And it goes on blue so that you can see which bits you've glues! Definitely helps with the paper piecing!!!
