SewConnected3 - May

The May month of SewConnected3 was again another double month.

SunnyNole decided upon a bird theme, and sent everybody a selection of fabrics she's been collecting for a while. My pack contained a couple of really cute owl fabrics.

I struggled a bit on making the block big enough from what was sent, but luckily some scraps I had left over from Sew-do-I's blocks co-ordinated nicely.

Can you see who I added to compliment the main owl?

Once that was finished I moved on to my block for Quayandco.

We were sent a selection of 2 1/2" strips in browns, creams and reds to make into a scrappy log cabin block.

I found this pretty easy and even had just (and I mean down to the last mm!!) enough fabric to make a second block.

Craft Clearout

Sorry I haven't been on much lately - I have been busy with bits and pieces (some will be blogged about in the next few days) - but after 2 years of trying we have managed to find a buyer for our house!! Well not technically a buyer - as we're part exchanging it for a new build.

As I've been sorting and packing up the house I've come upon a pile of craft magazines - mostly Patchwork and Quilting ones but they do include 3 issues of Sew Hip! - and I've put them on Ebay.

You should easily guess my user ID !!
