Well it's safe to say that going back to work has made a serious dent in my sewing output! Inevitably. The thing I've found hardest has been to carve out time at the sewing machine. I'm still sewing nearly every evening, but it's hand sewing. Going into July I want to remedy that and try and spend more time at my machine. Not quite sure where that time will come from mind you!
Here's what I did achieve! Lots of EPP, including picking up my Pollinate quilt again: But here is a Brimfield block in De La Luna:
EPP Geo-Diamond - I've now got four blocks so I can play with layouts a bit!
A Hexie Shutterburst: I love the fabrics I picked, but the finished block surprised me a little: the aqua blends and the pink pops!
When I have been working on my machine, I've been piecing Summer Sampler blocks... I'm planning a blog post to talk about the Summer Sampler 2019 in more detail, but for now, here's my favourite block so far!
And I've made a few more blocks for the Summer Sampler 2018, including the one that held me up last year!
I had a couple of finishes: both embroidery: the February embroidery
And the Bloom Hoop.
And I made a scrap quilt!
I haven't kept up with everything though: not all the Dear Jen blocks have been completed: two are done, two are in progress and two haven't been started. And my Coming Home quilt, whilst I've definitely made progress, I also definitely haven't finished all the applique for last month.
But we have done lot of non-sewing things: I've backed some cakes and done some gardening. We've had a few days out as a family, and last weekend, Joshua was christened. I think it's safe to say that June has left me pretty exhausted.
Linking up with Mini Archie's furtling!
