Hello and welcome back to the first Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE of 2018.
Here in New Zealand, we have been experiencing a record hot summer, which has at times, made sewing or hand sewing feel like a chore.
Nevertheless I have been stitching away on my Solstice Dream blocks and have finished another one. I love the how the hedgehog block turned out and am so pleased I and managed to find just the right scrap of Liberty fabric for the flower and all the threads I had on hand.
That moment you realised you used felt from the offcuts bag, not the project bag. Half an inch too short. I posted it on the Solstice Dreams facebook page, and both Kerry Green and my sister suggested adding a strip of felt to the block and embellishing it, I figured I had nothing to lose, cos if it didn't work I still had to do a new block. This is what I came up with. I think that once it is properly quilted, that will hopefully help disguise that extra seam too.(tell me that will work please Leeanne
Guess this is the impetus needed to clean up my sewing room, and put the offcuts away.
And I'm finishing off with a little sewing room cuteness, Meeka has obviously decided that unused quilt blocks and an almost empty pincushion make a great bed.
Now it's your turn to share, it doesn't matter if it's embroidery, a quilt, applique or epp, or some other stitched or sewn project, It can be a start, a finish or just a wip. All we ask is that you follow these guidelines when linking up:
