The last few weeks have been mostly about.....

...working on my Siblings Together Bee quilts: I asked for scrappy trip blocks when it was my turn with any colours. It's quite an eclectic mix to be honest! Its pretty much all finished now, so hopefully a ta-dah picture soon!

...visiting Alice Caroline fabrics for the open day of their new shop: you need to phone in advance to check they're around but if you're in the Cheltenham/Tewkesbury area it's definitely worth a visit! I was quite restrained and restricted myself to rummaging through the scrap buckets to get these beauties!

...working on my handpieced mini swap: as you would guess, this has been all handpieced and those little curves have been pretty tricky (the radius is just 1"!!!) but I'm pretty pleased with how it's looking so far. I just hope my partner feels the same!


...making lots of teacher gifts: somehow I've managed to make a total of thirteen dumpling pouches this week and a pencil case too. Crazy!!!


...cake making: Boy 2 is soon to be 5yrs and requested a "minecraft cake please Mummy". A quick search on Pinterest found me a pixel plan of a creeper and using my (cleaned!) 6" square quilting ruler was able to bulk cut the squares out!!!!! He seemed pretty pleased with it which was the main thing!

What a crazy few weeks! School has finished now so I think there will be more hand-sewing going on as I try to squeeze some sewing in amongst the craziness that is the summer holidays!

Guess I'd better get cracking!
