There has been a little sewing done in the past few days.
- the backing and quilting have finally been done on Mr J's shirt quilt, (I have only had the top completed and waiting since August 2014) the binding has been attached and just needs to be hand stitched down now. Normally, I don't mind hand stitching, only the quilt is quite heavy and it so hot here, that is it not a pleasant experience. With a completion date required by the end January, I must get it done (This is my main 2015 Finish-a-long - Q1 project)
- prepping a hand sewing project to take away - my first time doing English paper piecing, Apparently you can glue instead of basting the fabric to the templates - has anyone tried this, and would you recommend it?
- another paper piecing project - so much for a break from it - these ballet slippers will be turned into a pillow. Pattern from Tartankiwi. Working towards making handmade gifts for my nieces, this is also a Q1 finish-a-long project
