Another week, another eclectic selection of activities in the Thistle Patch! Last night I was walking a 10k after work (as you do), and thankfully the downpour that was forecast held off until about 9:30, long after I was home again. We’re currently doing the IT Olympics at work, and I’m taking part in the step challenge (noting down how far our pedometers say we’ve walked in a day), the 10k (which a friend conned me into doing and then dropped out of!), climbing, and at some point I’m meant to be showing off my awesome jenga skills… On the crafty front I’ve meandered between quilt blocks, teddy bears, coasters, shirts and wiggly bags, so quite a normal week really ;o)
Finishes This Week:
Brit Bee Blocks for Fiona (more on these tomorrow)
Coasters for Angela (well they were technically done last week, but I couldn’t share a photo til this week ;o) )
Wiggly bags for Emily (go here to read more about this charity drive)
In Progress This Week:
TBB II – all the machine sewing is now done, I just need to hand stitch in his muzzle and foot pads
Shirt for me
Cutting fabric for my month as Miss August in Brit Bee – my hand is getting strangely claw like, and I have odd marks on my knuckles on my left hand from the templates…
To Be Worked On This Week:
Skirt and shirt for me (class on Saturday)
Secret Quilt for QAL (get together at Jo’s on Sunday)
Inset Circle Challenge prize
Finish cutting bee block fabric before I lose all sensation in my left hand and my right shoulder ends up somewhere up round my ear
Hope you all have a great week, linking up, as ever to:
Oh wow I love those coasters!!!!!!!
ooh is that a secret I'm actually going to be in on??!
Am totally in love with your bee quilt already.
Busy as usual, Katy!
Cute coasters! Love the little scooter inside. Did you applique the pieces or are they pieced?
Loving the coasters! Can't wait to see your bee blocks – the fabrics are fab!
Your bee fabrics look lovely, can't wait to see the blocks you have planned for everyone!! I've been eyeing up that abacus fabric for a while.
I've been out today to get some sewable velcro for a few wiggly bags. It a great idea. I love the monkey one@
Oooh the work Olympics sounds both like fun and totally crazy too.
Such cool looking projects! Loving that fabric stack. You could have let me cut it for you ;D
Cool coasters!! Im looking forward to seeing your shirt., it's so good you found a class that helps you draft a pattern.. Good on you for joining in the IT Olympics.
Those coasters are great! How did you make them?
Oh my gosh I LOVE those grays and aquas!!! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!
Your fabrics for the Brit Bee look lovely, hope your hand recovers soon or your jenga prowess might not be as impressive as it should be!
Busy as usual and still you find time to post. I can't believe you're showing fabric photos again. You know what happens when I see fabric. Drooling on the key board can't be good for it.
My, my, what we are learning about you from Jock – say Philadelphia. Giggle.
