January Furtle

Archie The Wonder Dog is kicking off a new link up this month to give those of us who still blog a place to share a monthly overview, and those who don't blog any more to get back to it. A little furtle through the month!

My sewing month looked a bit like this...


Heavy on the EPP as for half the month I was too huge and uncomfortable to sit at my sewing machine. I made massive progress on my Ice Cream Soda quilt. I finished the last few block, laid it out and put together the first five columns.

I made three Mandolin blocks, two blocks for Shark's Dinner block of the month, and the centre of the Alexandria quilt. Watch out for some blog posts on these in the next few days!


I also jumped on the Tiny Dresden Party bandwagon and made a tiny Dresden block using scraps from my Mandolin quilt. But now it's made, I'm not quite sure what to do with it... once I've decided I'll blog about that too!



After Joshua arrived, I managed to get back to my sewing machine, and I've pieced the low volume back of my Hidden Agenda quilt. Basting will be a challenge.


And for my birthday, I finished my Alison Glass Triangle cushion - my first finish of 2019.

Most of these projects require blog posts of their own to show them off, and ideally I should have done that before I post this overview of January. But that hasn't happened this month. Once I get the blog posts wrtten, I'll lin through to them and in February I'll try and blog as I go ready for next month's furtle!

Linking up with Archie the Wonder Dog's furtle!

You've already assembled five columns of the ice cream soda blocks? Good grief, woman, you've just had a baby!!! *impressed face* I've enjoyed reading your post and am looking forward to reading the posts about these finishes. Thank you very much for linking up and for spreading the word about furtling *waves pompoms*

Gorgeous colours in Dresden plate and cushion. Really let the sun in. Maybe I should give bold colours a try.
Congrats on the babt!

Seriously you achieved all of this and gave birth and are tending to a newborn all in one month? You deserve ALL of the gold medals!! Your projects are beautiful and bright - very happy makes. I wish you well this month and hope you can enjoy much snuggling with your new bundle of loveliness.

I can't believe you've done all that and had a baby!!
I love the hidden agenda backing and I want to steal your triangle cushion too!

That's a really productive month, especially considering your other 'big project'! I love your Ice Cream Soda blocks, that one is definitely on my long list of 'want to do's'.
