I'm in two swaps on Instagram. The first featuring Anna Maria Horner fabric (like I could resist that!)
My partner is not a fan of anything too bright, she prefers more muted colours (fluro is not her friend) so I started with this hexie/half-hexie configuration ...
It was starting to look more dull than muted to me so I've decide to add a bit more colour to help this mini bloom.
Here's hoping I'm on the right track!
The second Instagram swap I'm in is all about Lizzy House fabrics, fun right?!
I flipped/flopped with a few ideas for this swap and just couldn't settle on a design. Then I spied that my partner is getting hitched soon so I thought it might be fun to do a double wedding ring mini (disclaimer: of some sort lol).
Turns out Lizzy House fabrics are really fun to fussy cut and I think the added selvedges are a nice touch for a mini focusing on a single fabric designer ... even if I do say so myself :)
I'm hoping to have these minis ready to quilt soon so that I can quilt them at the same time as Hubby's half hexie flimsy ... I don't like having to change feet on my machine ... lazy bones.
May has also brought with it many other M's ...
We've ... Moved house
|Sewing room (lol)|
We held a My Little Pony birthday party for Miss 5 ... two days after we moved (madness)
|I made 26 of these pool noodle ponies for the birthday party - such fun!|
We had a magical Mother's Day
|We took some silly selfies as Daddy is away visiting his mum (aka Nanny London) in the Mother Country|
and we've been helping Master Monty settle into our new home ...
|He seems to be coping just fine ...|
My goodness it's been a momentous month so far! I might just join Master Monty next time he flops on the couch.
