September has been a hectic, stressful month with the return from summer break to full on schedule of activities and routines again. On top of that, I seem to have spent much of it in advocacy for CT's pre-school provision. So, I'm a little surprised that I have anything stitchy to show for September at all, and not really surprised that what there is to show is a little bit all over the place (rather like my head).
Before my wee brain got super stretched I managed to exercise it a little in working out how to make a rather large sleeping bag for CT. It's been well tested now and I'm pleased to report is doing the job nicely.
I finished my 'perfect pairs' block into a cushion which was such a pleasure once I'd decided which border fabric to use. I just love this.
While I didn't actually do any stitching for my EPP Hexie Diamonds quilt in September, I did gather all the diamonds to play layout and then spent a couple of evenings figuring out a design to help frame and finish the diamonds centre panel. Let's just say it's going to take a lot more hexies!!
The re-emergence of this Christmas project WIP did encourage me to progress it a little this month. Not a lot of sewing admittedly - I completed the embroidered panel and then spent time at the ironing board setting bondawebbed numbers on the squares for the next stage. A little progress is still progress.
So, that was my September in stitches. What about you?
