Wednesday again?! Sheesh! I didn’t even have the excuse of running off to London to distract me this week… Still I did have some fun ventures :o)
Finishes This Week:
Framed purse and extra for the In The Frame Purse Swap:
My ‘No Sew’ project for Angela, but you’ll need to wait til later in the month for that, sorry!
In Progress This Week:
Remember the hexies from last week? Well I was at my gran’s on Saturday, and as her neighbour had kindly painted her deck (which I’d been expecting to do) I got to sit and chat with her instead while ripping all the basting stitches and papers out. It really does have to sit awhile now!
I’ve been developing my first pattern for a skirt at a pattern drafting class. I can’t wait to learn more about this:
I’ve got 1 7/8ths of Fiona’s bee blocks done. In case you’re wondering how you do 7/8ths of a bee block, that’s what you do when you miscalculate by a whopping 3″ x 1 1/2″ o.O Thankfully Fiona has more fabric, and I was seeing her tomorrow anyway! I’ll show these off when they’re all done…
I started a new series, Anatomy Of A Bear, which I would have said would be more polite than ASS Guru Sundays, but then I read the comments on part 1… ;o)
I also randomly started working on a My Precious quilt at about 11pm on Saturday, oh, but not the bubble ones, the Echo one. What do you mean, ‘What Echo one?’ I mentioned it, like, once, months ago, how could you have forgotten?! I’ll post more on that tomorrow.
To Be Worked On This Week:
TBB II series, part 2
Brit Bee blocks for Fiona
Pattern drafted skirt
Insert circle challenge prize
Linking up, as ever, to:
I'm off to read the comments on bear anatomy. I think it would be the right time of the day for a laugh. Meanwhile, stop making the rest of us look like slackers please.
Yeah do as Susan says and stop making us look like the bunch of slackers we are!
Hee hee x
LOL I had to go to read the Part 1 comments to see if they were thinking what I was thinking! 😀 I am glad you are doing that series! It is fun to see how the bears are made.
I love your frame purse, the pattern on the front is so pretty!
Your frame purse is absolutely adorable! Love it!
And how cool to be drafting a skirt pattern of your own? People who can write clothing patterns for clothes that actually fit amaze me!
Varied selection as always missus, including top shelf stuff it would seem.
sheesh. Overachiever… 😉
Will be looking forward to the updates on those projects! =D
Your frame purse has turned out really lovely. Your Zakka-style elephant is pretty sweet too!
Still laughing about the bear pieces though 🙂
It is so lovely – your partner will enjoy your purse greatly – specially if it's me! Haha!
Had to go back and check out the comments – of course! And yes! I agree with Hadley!
I'm getting old and I have forgotten the Echo one!!!!
That is one of the prettiest frame purses I have seen!!!
