We trimmed the blocks.
Played with the layout, but it seems the blocks had their own idea.
Not paying close enough attention!
There was plenty of unsewing happening!
Now we've got it the right way.
And by midnight we had pairs.
Oopsie inspecting in the light of day.

The beginning of my Flat Nat designed by the talented Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches.
Some quilting on my pinwheel blocks from the quilt a long.
A warm and fluffy beanie finished for the cool windy weather we are currently experiencing.
Progress on my purple version of the textured vest pattern in a '90's magazine.

So I played in the pincushion challenge over at Pins and Needles.
The rules were quite clear about only using what you had to hand - well there really wasn't a problem with that - Plenty of resources in the warehouse - so I decided to play with the scrap basket.
Now I have a new friend in the sewing room.
Look mum tippie toes.

A new friend to take on stitchy outings.
Well she will be when I make her, I chose the fabric today and maybe I will start tomorrow?
I have wanted this pattern since I first saw her on Natalies blog - now it has come to live at my house - Yay.
Now the pincushion for the challenge over at Pins and Needles has a mind of its own -
Let's just she wheelie is a challenge.
Slowly she emerges from her safe place...
Need to focus - as I deadline is Monday.
Hope you have time for creative activity.

Whilst I am unaware of the age or origin of this thimble I consider it a treasure.
As you can see it is quite well used and it fits perfectly so it is a very useful addition to my sewing kit.

Today was a cold rainy day here, lucky for me it was not a work day -
perfect for spending time in the sewing room.
I spent a large part of today playing with my sewing machine and I have a finish.
My version of the Sample Scarf designed by Jodie of Ric Rac.

This is the remainder of the picture for the patchwork scarf.
Oooh - now I get to play with my sewing machine, which has been feeling neglected of late, there may even be a finish soon??
Having some daylight for crafting certainly aids productivity in my space.

A whole day at home and I think I can achieve amazing things in the sewing room -
So I started
playing with some scraps and this is what I have so far, small parts which will become a pincushion for the challenge that I am participating in over at Pins and Needles.
And a new stitchery from the lovely Jodie @ Ric-Rac which is part of a patchwork scarf pattern we received at the Daylesford Craft Experience last month.
I did not complete quilting the wall hanging - the next target date is in 18 days -
I plan to do some each day to get if finished!
