My monthly check in on the goals I set here at the beginning of the year. February has been another good month for me. I finally finished work and am really enjoying being on maternity leave. This month seemed to involve receiving a lot of lovely handmade gifts made by talented friends and family which I have blogged about here and here.
However I have managed to get some things made myself this month. Unsurprisingly they are all baby related - sorry!
And I've made a little progress on some of my WIPs too.
The sewing room transformation into nursery is now almost complete - I will bore you all with some photos of the finished room with all its handmade bits soon! I am managing quite well with my stash being stored in a cupboard in our bedroom and the machine set up downstairs. It's making me be a lot tidier for sure!
This month I've managed to use up 14 yards and only added 4 to my stash so that a net use of 10 for February - so far so good this year! (In case you were wondering why my stash use is so big for not a lot of makes I count something as used when it is finished and the bunting and quilt were heavy on the stash!)
I've managed to keep up with blogging this month and have been trying to focus on taking slightly better photos of my projects (being home in daylight hours certainly helps!).
I've also done a new blog header which I'm rather pleased with. I am usually not very technical at all but I followed That Girl That Quilt's tutorial and it all seems to work ok. Click through and let me know what you think!
I'm not making any big plans for next month - having a baby will be quite sufficient! I expect that I will keep sewing a few little projects though to keep me occupied while I wait!
