Not too much to share this week! After a mad rush of sewing to get gifts finished for Mother's Day and birthdays and then a mini holiday last weekend, sewing is on the lighter side at the moment!
I have however added at least two blocks to my Red Herring collection. Two blocks! Impressive, no? Here's how they are looking so far:
I added the grey block - which I am loving the butterflies on:
And this orange block, which seems to read as more red in the top photo but is definitely an orange. I am a diehard orange-hater (sorry, orange lovers, it just doesn't do it for me) but... I actually quite like this block. I know, shocking, right? Maybe it's the cute scissors!
So while we're talking blocks... all of my Bee blocks from April have arrived! Woohoo! Though I am going to miss seeing those fun squishy parcels arrive in the mail! Here's a photo I took before the last package arrived. So imagine this with two more purple blocks added to it.
I will need to add another two more blocks to the mix, maybe another red and yellow. What do you think? I'm planning to get this sewn up soon. Planning for it to be a lap rug size quilt. It'll be donated to Angels for the Forgotten who work with kids in foster care. Great cause.
And the last thing I have in the works is something for the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop being run by Beth of Plum and June.
Such a great idea to get to know bloggers who started blogging either last year or this year. My day is June 5th but I'm getting organised and planning what little item I'm going to make with novelty fabric! Here's a peek.
So really - not a lot of progress this week, but I think I managed to make it look like more by adding extra photos. Sneaky, sneaky. I do have to get busy though sewing up a little soft owl toy for Little Miss's 2nd birthday this weekend. She has youngest child syndrome happening where she feels like she's missing out as her brother got an owl toy for his birthday last year and of course lords it over her. Aren't kids fun?
And before I go - one last link. You'll like this one. My gorgeous friend Fiona over at Finding Fifth is having a giveaway to celebrate reaching 100 followers! Quite an achievement! Worth popping over to see what she has up for grabs :)
Linking up with WiP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
