Mind the Gap!
This small sample (just over 6" almost square) must have taken me about 8 hours to make. Each yo-yo (or Suffolk puff, if you are being posh) was drawn up around a 1p piece, so they finished quite small.
It was interesting. It was slightly too repetitive. I won't have to make another sample like this for my C&G course. I'm pleased that I've done it once!
Far quicker, on a relative scale, was this, the second of the kitchen bench cover-up quilts (thrown over the kitchen arm chair for this photo). As I'd make the top at the same time as the first one I just had the quilting to do.
Another tick on my 'to-do' list. In the last month I've managed 5 ticks, 3 half-ticks (projects started or moved forward significantly) and 5 more items still to start, let alone finish - most of which I'd like finished by the end of the month. Lucky that most of them are small projects, but not, I'm hoping, as time consuming as this weeks small project!
