This and that
Just wanted to share a few things with you - firstly, if you haven't already - do drop by my cousin's craft website and check out her knitted beanies. Here is the link. Bets is a homeschooling mum of two gorgeous children, do support her if you can or spread the word.
Went to my second quilting class on Tuesday. We started our first block - Ohio Star. However to make sure we learn all the basics, we are hand sewing this block. I was surprised at how strong the hand sewn square was. I do need to work on my cutting!!
Drawing lines on the fabric is now much easier thanks to this ceramic pencil - it glides across the fabric whereas the lead pencil was just too hard as it snagged on the fabric. A few of my new tools - my 1/4inch spacer and my inches ruler (for those in the US, we usually use metric, but as most quilting instructions are in inches all the equipment we use are also inches).
Almost finished a black lined pinafore (jumper) - hoping to have this finished by the weekend then will share it with you.
My new pile of books waiting to be read - I can't wait to get started. A few more on their way - plenty to keep me busy.
Last day of July - August on Friday. I just wish it would slow down just a little !
