Update on my Birdie BOM.....

I finally finished both May and June Birdie blocks,just in time for July's block coming out at the end of this week LOL.I think I'm cutting it a bit fine but with work,uni assignments and life I'm lucky to get any stitching done unless I make a concentrated effort to sit down and tune out the world for a little bit with my's been my sanity saver this past six months :)

Something new.....

As usual I just can't resist starting something new and with the weather being decidedly cooler where I am I thought I'd start on another crocheted ripple blanket in pink and cream.This one will be for me when it's done.I'm enjoying making a few things for me especially in crochet.

What I've been working on.....

In-between uni assignments which I just put one in and received another to work on in exchange LOL I've been knitting and trying to keep up with a few BOM blocks I'm doing this year.I still don't know where I find the time to fit everything in but I do know that if I at least squeeze in five or ten minutes of stitching/knitting or crocheting I'm a much happier,relaxed person to be around.....thank goodness for my craft is all I can say.

The heart blocks are from the "twelve of hearts" BOM I'm stitching this year,all up to date now and the dishcloths are finishes for OPAM.

I'm halfway through my first year of my uni course and I only have another year and a half and fingers crossed I'll have my diploma at the end of next year to make it all worth while!

More finishes for OPAM.......

This long weekend I finally finished of some projects that have been sitting on my sewing table.I've had two of these draw-string bags cut out for about a month and decided to try and get them done over this long weekend as a reward for finally finishing my uni assignment due this Wednesday.The brown draw string bag I made to use in conjunction with my uni asssignment.I love how thay've all turned out.

I also finished the June block for the "Home sweet home" BOM that I'm working to finish June's block for the "12 of hearts" BOM I'm doing as well.There just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I would love to do but today I spent a bit of time in my sewing room clearing of my tables and I can now say I can see the tops of them again LOL but in doing so I dicovered even more projects I've started and not finished or patterns set aside with the fabric needed for them all bagged and ready to start on..... it's never ending but I honestly wouldn't have it any other way.

I'll try and post some more pic's soon of some of the things I've been working on in the evenings when I have a spare moment or two.

June blocks done and dusted.....

I've finally finished my June blocks in-between uni assignments,work and life getting in the way.I've also traced out my July blocks ready to start stitching over the school holidays which are fast approaching.I love how all the diferent blocks are looking,so individual and so special,I may just have to make another of these quilts but in a different colour.....but not just yet maybe over the Christmas break??
