I've bought some lovely things for friends and family this year which I'm very pleased with - they're going to be really well received and I'm mega excited to give them all out.
I'm wishing for some bits'n'bobs for my sewing endevours ........ hopefully includng a free-motion embroidery foot.
Since my last blog I have been keeping busy. My most recent project is this Amish Star block, as published in Sew Hip! magazine this month...
|Step 1 - cut out the fabric squares, 4 are a little bigger in size|
|Sewing the 1/4 inch seam|
|I had got the orientation of my heart fabric the wrong way round!|
|so I re-cut them|
|I sewed up the vertical rows first|
|... then the horizontal rows|
|two blocks finished|
|Adding a border|
|I am turning one of my blocks into a cushion cover - yet to be finished|
They're still yet to be finished so I'll update soon with more photos.
