Project 365 week 10

Sunday

Spent the evening yesterday seeking out pinterest pictures to use for my applique, printed them off and cut them out, then laminated them. Spent my break cutting them out to use as templates. Seemed like a lot of work at the time but if I am going to be making any more than one of each then will be worthwhile. Slotted them into poly pockets to keep them together.









Monday

The day I take Bob to gymnastics, normally sit in the library but is now light enough to be going walks up the country estate again. So Lilly hubby and I had a pleasant walk. The Spring flowers are coming along nicely.






Tuesday

Another walk. Spotted masses of frog spawn in the flooded part of the field.Sadly the water had receded round these ones but there were more than enough in the water that the frog population in the area will not miss them.









Wednesday

Doing holiday cover this week. Will be grateful for it come payday but wanted to play with my sewing.  Love the display of crocuses that come up every year.





Thursday

Going to be making up a few samples so people can choose what they fancy. A lot of  time  goes into them and if it was not for the charity I would not be making and selling them at the price I am, but all for a good cause. This one is probably eight hours.







Friday

Back to the optician as the eyes are not improving much, they seem to for a few days then right back to square one. This has been since beginning of December. He and I both now think it is more allergy related than infection. So given me something to help, I hope.
A spot of babysitting, was bedtime for the twins so I did stories and then took Spud down and gave her something to eat. This is one sleepy Minky.




Saturday


Got my official paperwork through during the week. You can find my profile here and I will be sharing pictures of my completed work.

  1. I'm loving the quilting, how much are you selling them for and what charity? can you reply on fb or twitter please? Hope you manage to get to the bottom of the problem with your eyes, it can't help much with the sewing. Lovely picture of the crocus

  5. It sounds like a good idea to get organised with your patterns, even if it takes a lot of time at first. I love your sample hedgehog. I can totally believe it took eight hours!
    It's great to see spring flowers, isn't it?

  6. The hedgehog is just so cute. You could make and sell these as pillows and I bet they'd be so popular!

    1. organised from the start is often the best way, time will tell whether it was worth it or not.
