Sew Many Plans - September 2013

My long list of stitching plans for August went swimmingly well, in no small part due to the fact that I had two glorious weeks of holidays to free up lots of lovely "me time".

Results, I'd say!

Moving into September I have a new commitment to fess up to.   I have joined the Modern Stitching Bee and will start this month by making Leanne's requested blocks.  Her block plans are fab, I just have to pull it off.

Bee Blessed picks up again after a much needed (by me) summer break and there is always plenty to keep us all busy there, not to mention the giant star quilt top that needs some attention too.

hipBees starts its 2nd year this month and I am kicking off as Queen Bee. I have already made my blocks in advance for the instructions sent to the others, but I do have a backing to piece for my first quilt so I'd love to be able to make some progress with that one.

Class - I'm also going back to class as a totally self-indulgent treat to socialise and make a pixellated heart quilt over a six week period.  I am really looking forward to that as it's been a while since I've been able to attend and they are always loads of fun!

Maybe one or two little things might work their way through the sewing room as the month progresses. Who knows?  Still some WIPs and UFOs that could use my attention, but this month I am definitely all about NOT stressing, so we'll see how it goes.

So, looks like I have a plan.  What about you?


  1. I went to sit and sew today and finished my Simply Woven, pattern by Jessica at Sewcrafty Jess. I used two jelly rolls from Simply Colour, it s gorgeous. Did two blocks for Bee Blessed, and one coaster from Patchwork Please by Ayumi, You can tell there weren't many at class,little talking, lots sewing. will try to finish Farmers Wife next.....

  2. Sounds like a very good plan. Especially getting back into class and hanging out with fellow sewing type people.

  3. It's a good plan, my plans are always seriously over optimistic. I am so glad you are in my bee and making a block for me.

  4. Looking forward to seeing your block for Leanne (and having you back in class of course!). jxo

  5. you are certainly very organised I should take a leaf out of your book as I do not seem to have any system apart from completing my CQJP block each month, seem to wander aimlessly from one thing to another! Mind you I am getting on in years so do not work, maybe that makes a difference, not the age but living on my own and having all the time in the world to do what I want to do.
