What I'm working on right now .....

I'm enjoying being back in this space and recording all my missed makes.  And in doing so I have been thinking some more about why I stepped away from it.  A couple of things stood out.  Firstly I don't have as much time to create anymore so I didn't have as many finished things to blog and so I simply blogged less often.  Secondly because of this, the blog just became a record of things I had made without any mention of the process, decision making, and fun involved in making them.  My efforts to simply just have a record of what I made had led to a very depersonalised account and when I read back over it it just didn't seem to reflect who I was.  I've also been sorting through my online photos and realising how many things I do that I don't record.  So with that in mind this post is simply as stated - a look back at what I worked on (but didn't necessarily finish) in January and a look forward to what I'm working on in February.

I have been working on these Quilt As You Go blocks for my sister's 30th forever (don't ask how old she is now!)  Finally I have completed 42 of them and sewn them all together.  I now just need to pin a back on, add some quilting lines and bind it.

There has also been some knitting: 

A lot of coffee drinking:

Some organising of the new sewing loft:

And exploring of the new house:

Next month should see some more work on the quilt and the cowl (which to me sounds like the title of my ideal craft book).  And hopefully starting a birthday present project for James with this lovely fabric:

And hopefully (please I desperately hope) the first house renovation project should also get completed.


  1. Your sister's quilt is gorgeous! Good luck with the renovation!

  2. Every hair artist needs and perfectly matched shear to create beautiful hair styles, but this isn’t as easy as it seems. The skill of the professional hairdresser cannot shine if they are working with a substandard shear. The efficiency and comfort of the professional is on the line
