Final May Finishes

Rainy day plus sewing machine makes a perfect match ... not so great for taking photos indoors. I completed the stitching on the 'Seasons Of' block last night and this morning was able to add the borders to finish off. Thanks Wendy and Dawn ... they're such sweet little blocks.

Next I worked on the 2nd bundle of 100 x 2" charms from the first Postage Stamp Charm Swap. As I sew each set together I have another bundle of squares on hand to act as leaders and enders so that I can chain sew and not mess up my layout. Not only did I get the 100 block finished, I also managed to join the next bundle into pairs. I love how all those random fabrics come together in the end.

I seem to be in a knitting mood at the moment and finally made a start on a sock!  Photos when I have a little more progress to share but I will say that after the 3rd start (pulled it out twice) I am learning heaps.

Here is how my list of May goals went.

BISS BOM ~ I'll get there eventually :)
TTS ~ Chilly Penguin
1 Xmas Item ~ Knitted Wash Cloth

Cut Fabric ready for workshop

Happy Sewing, Knitting, Creating
