February Furtle

It's been quite the month! Having three kids seems to suit me. So far at least. I have loads of energy, the house is tidy and I'm sewing. Joshua is napping, and generally a happy, laid back baby, and the girls have accepted that he won't be going back in Mummy's tummy!


I finally finished Joshua's quilt; I completed the top of my Ice Cream Soda quilt ready for quilting; I made two more rainbow cushions for birthday gifts; I finished the long running Architextures and Botanics quilt; I finished my two-sided Hidden Agenda in Tula Pink fabrics and low volume. I finally bought a hoop to frame the owl embroidery I did back in January. And I started an embroidery.... more on that later this month as it deserves its own blog post.


I started a new quilt: the Cherish pattern and papers from Tales of Cloth, paired with Tabby Road by Tula Pink; I made a couple of blocks for the Summer Sampler 2018, I started the Coming Home quilt; made a few more Lisa the Unicorn blocks; kept going with my Mandolin quilt (and prepped a load more); kept up to date with the Sharks Dinner block of the month and pulled out the Down the Rabbit Hole quilt to make a start on the applique.

Linking up with Archie the Wonder Dog for this month's furtle.

Are you sure you have three children? How on earth do you manage them AND all of this in a short month to boot!! I suspect you must have superpowers that you aren't letting on about. Well, done on such a productive month!

You put the rest of us to shame with your productivity, hope you're managing to get some rest!

Super blog, super projects and especially super baby!

Blimey! I agree with everyone else--how the heck did you fit all that in around 3 children, one of whom is a neonate? You've got some amazing finishes in there, and I can see I'll pop back later to read about your ICS quilt and those amazing rainbow cushions! Brava!

Everything you do is so lovely, Jennie, but I especially adore those rainbow cushions! 💕

Good grief I’m exhausted!! What a month and a short one at that. I have 3 children as well and I only wish I did find it energising!! Fun and lively yes.... All your makes are beautiful but just love your ice cream soda quilt. As you say it must be very freeing to just use any fabrics you had and it all blends in perfectly. And just love that double border. That dark grey was inspired even if it was troublesome.

Loads of awesome projects !! I think you need to spread some of that sewing energy around 😂😂😂

You are the most productive new mum I know - is there any chance the bairns feed and dress themselves and that's why you're managing all these finishes? Or did Joshua's arrival entitle you to five extra hours a day?! Thanks for Furtling!
