Eek!  Is this all the sewing I've done this week?  I'm afraid so!

I'm in my last 'push' to try and complete my C&G patchwork and quilting course.  I'd love to get my work submitted in time for external verification this year - which means that it all has to be with my tutor by Friday.

Its been nip and tuck, but I think that I'm just going to scrape in by the skin of my teeth (mixed metaphors?  Me?).

So this has been a week of  finishing notes, reviewing samples (and adding the odd missing one, hence this blob with lots of curves to show off 'curved edges with bias binding'), and generally trying to dot the 'i's and cross the 't's (although for part of the week I seem to have been dotting the 't's and crossing the 'i's - you know how it goes sometimes!).

Perhaps I'll manage some 'real' sewing again after this.  I've still got a couple of quilts that I'd like to get made in good time for the end of the school year, as well as some projects that I'd like to do as part of my quilting group challenges.  As usual, a head full of ideas, a cupboard full (and overflowing) with fabric, but still time and energy challenges!


  1. Impressive curves - in a non-sexist sewing context I mean!

  2. Good luck with your deadline, I'm sure you'll get there, is this the end for you then?! Wow how exciting!! I'm making progress but not as fast as I would like and my finish is several years away!! Good luck with it all and I look forward to seeing what you make next :-)

  3. Catching up! Well done for keeping going with this! I think that blob is how I sleep - on my belly, arms up, one straight leg , one frogs leg!!!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
