Long Time Gone

It was amnesty week in the Long Time Gone sew along a few weeks back so I tried to play catch up as much as possible... I really don't want to fall behind as that will help not to fall in the UFO trap! It is so much more motivating to be sewing with others, even remotely!

So recently I made 2 more pineapple blocks to the ones I made at the end of June all shown here


the 2 remaining Flying Geese blocks


All the mini Churn Dash blocks that were missing (9)

to make them as the 2 units

And last Sunday I went to the Maker's Retreat with Cathy, which was such a great relaxing day. We even managed to sew and I made all the checkerboard blocks too!
And all in all that's 22 blocks for July already!

Q2 FAL review

The second quarter of the year is already over and it has been busy as welll as rich in memorable times. Busy family time, busy work time and a little sewing squeezed in of course, just to keep my sanity! I had a long list with 23 items this term and of course I won't cross them all off but at least there are a few that I will not dragging over the summer! 8 finishes, mainly in the dressmaking category. Admittedly, it is so much quicker to get a finish in dressmaking than in quilting. And I think I've been slightly bitten by the bug...

1. Blanche Bag for A - not started

2.  Quilt for E - HK QAL - all cut, it would be good to have it done for her birthday in April


3. Belle Bag for C - not started

4. Modern HST quilt - half of the blocks done




5. Super Mario quilt - a few blocks still needed 

6. Project 48 quilt/Solstice Challenge

7. Impromptu along - abandoned 3 years ago! 

8. Pumpkin Passport Cross stitch - finished



9. Sorbetto top - finished


10. Sorbetto top (crepe) - in progress


11. Dress for C - finished




12. Saunio cardigan - finished



13. Floral Supply Case Sew Along - not started


14. Shirt Dress
 (Darling) - finished

15. Bridgetown Dress - not started


16. Lizzie Skirt - not started


17. Gold pencil skirt - finished


18. Farmer's wife - first plan was to finish it by Mum's birthday but this is probably unrealistic now....
