Well I forgot to post my TUSAL, so here it is for all to see.....

A mad idea!

First of all go and visit Terrie's blog she's having a fantastic and generous giveaway, which of course I would love to win.

I've finally managed to finish February by LHN, it's taken me what seems like forever to finish, but it's now all done and is looking good if I do say so myself. I've also made good progress on March, I just love the little sheep it's so cute.

I've been busying buying some more stash. I bought CCN Part 1 of the "Summer Seascape" series and Blue Ribbon Designs "Schoolgirl Samplings", I'm still waiting for the fabric to arrive for this though. What do people think, do I just do the sampler or do I make the whole box and smalls? (Sorry about the picture quality)
I've also joined my first BOTM from Leanne's House "Down in the Garden". You can see picture's of it on the side bar. I'm sure you'll agree that the fabrics and threads for the first block are lovely, but there's a problem - I've never actually made a quilt before, (and that's the mad idea) I'm sure that I will eventually figure it out or if anyone has any helpful suggestions it would be greatly appreciated, but don't hold your breath for regular updates.
Well I think that's all for now, I need to go and feed the boys their tea. Take care of yourselves and I'll see you all soon.

Hi again!

I can't believe that it's been so long since I last posted. I guess life gets busy and things get in the way, I've kept saying to myself that I'll post but then I get distracted. I've gone back to work after maternity leave and because I'm so tired I've not done that much stitching.
First of all here is my TUSAL about 3 weeks late, you can compare it with the picture in the post below.
I've finished the main part of the 'Traveling Stitcher' but I've still have to finish the small design. I've read that the Impie, Hattie & Bea project keeper may be released again later in the year so I'm not going to finish it off quite yet as I'd like to buy the original.
I'm going to try and give myself some small goals to complete this month.

  1. Finish the February ornament by LHN

  2. Stitch and finish the March ornament by LHN

  3. Stitch and finsish parts 2 & 3 of Spring Social by CCN 

  4. Anything else will be a bonus.
I think these are doable and hopefully I'll feel like I accomplished something. Next time I'll have some pictures of stash that I've bought. Happy stitching.
