I’m slowly getting over this rotten bronchitis, but my sewjo is very slow to return. I did make a little cushion for my son’s best friend for his birthday this weekend. Not without hassles and problems and not loving it along the way.
What started as a cool idea of a personalised patchwork pillow ended up with a reverse applique initial pillow. And much frustration in between.
I’m happy with the result though and am happy to actually gift this one – rather than hide it and buy Lego instead (though I will get a little bit of Lego to go with this!). My son picked the colours – and importantly he’s happy with the result.
But other than that, there really has not been much sewing going on around my place. It’s a sad state of affairs. I’m hoping that my sewjo will return soon – then I get back to a few WiPs for Christmas.
Both are paper pieced projects using my own patterns (you can find them in my Craftsy store if you’re so inclined). Maybe I need some paper piecing to get me back into the swing of things!
For those who've been making LEGO Star Wars quilts - I just added the very last block I designed to my shop. One more bad guy for the collection - General Grevious. He's free like the rest of the LEGO Star Wars patterns :)
And on that note… just a little reminder to those who were joining in the And Sew On Bom – there’s only one day left to link up your project made with one of the blocks. With 10 prizes on offer, there’s a pretty good chance at winning something Pop over here and have a look.
Here’s looking forward to a bit more progress next week!
