January is always an unproductive month for me. I don't know why, but each year starts off with lots to do and no enthusiasm to do it. But after chopping up all that stash and making the shorts, I pulled myself together and got on with things that need to be done.
This little chappie has become my new best friend . Have you used an "Add A Quarter" ruler? It certainly makes Foundation Piecing easier, and the "Add and Eighth" is even better if you are working on a miniature.
Mini Mania Challenge is Pineapple Log Cabin. we are using the template from Little Mushroom Cap and the blocks finish at 3"
I also had another Foundation Pieced project on the back burner, so got that all printed and stitched while I was on a roll
The Add an Eighth does not work however, if you forget to fold your just added piece back before you cut!!
|not the only time I did this!|
And I made one of these! Magic Custard Cake - it really is magic how you pour a very runny mixture into the pan and out comes a three layer cake?!?!?
And - I have just one more round on my crochet blanket and that is another finish!!!
|my lovely bag (gifted in a swap ) ready for Crochet Club last Friday|
|Not particularly challenging, but they are pretty!|
Have you seen this quilt? I have been downloading the patterns and have sorted fabric, so I may have given myself something else to keep me busy!
Off to get that blanket finished so I can start on this pattern. I have had a look, and can't seem to get it started properly so need a clear run I think!
Oh - you remember the paint colour choices?
Well, we ( and when I say "we" I do mean Mr T!) have painted twice, and are off to get a third colour later in the week!
