Another month gone

Hi all,

So what have I been doing this month? I can't believe how quickly it has flown by! Looking back through my photos I realize that I have been busier than I thought ....I will try to get back into blogging more regularly, maybe that will help my bloggy mojo to kick in. I have felt a little flat about blogging for the last couple of months but anyway let's get on with the show shall we?!

I got to pattern test the awesome wallet pattern by Erin from Dog Under My Desk. I really loved making this and I would highly recommend the pattern when it is available!

My local patchwork shop Sew This and That have a monthly embroidery club that I have signed up for this year, I have "inherited" a lovely embroidery machine and want to learn how to operate her. This month we made 'Foot Flickers' to keep our feet organised....

And I had a little practice with a design from Urban Threads.

I also caught up with my blocks for the Ausmod Bee that I am in. There was some AMH feathers for November (yes November).

And some butterfly blocks for January.

What else... Oh and I made another book bag for school.

I think that is enough for now!

See you soon, Jess

Midnight at the Oasis

Hi everyone,

The Midnight at the Oasis QAL is coming to an end so I thought I would do a progress update.

Last night I finished the appliqué border, yay! Now I need to find another appliqué WIP that I can work on at night while we watch our episode of Star Trek.

I have started piecing the churn dash blocks for the next border. I have 10 made, 10 half made and the rest are prep'd ready to go.

I plan to keep working away on this one, I love how each border changes to look of the quilt!

Bye for now, Jess :)
