Reading my most recent posts you would think that I have turned into a travel blogger and not been doing any stitching. One thing about being able to be out and about is that my stitching time is reduced. However, I have still been getting some done.
I was a bit frustrated by my Janome sewing machine needing a service. Finally, once lockdown had been lifted I was able to take it and Mick's Mum's Elna in to the shop that arranges services. I hadn't used this person before. I was delighted to have them back in just a few days and my Janome is running like a dream again. It was fine using my Mum's Elna, but I do appreciate needle up and needle down, as well as the knee lift.
Let's see how my goals for the month went.
Firstly, I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in last month's draw, being the recipient of a $25 voucher to the Fat Quarter Shop. Thanks Patty for drawing out my name.
My goal this month was to fill a post pack with Santa Sacks to send down to Jan Mac in Melbourne for children in need.
I managed to make fifteen, which I am happy about.
This month I planned to work on another donation quilt.
3. CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
I didn't make any progress on a project with my redwork stitcheries - still procrastinating. I did start a secret project but no pic - it's secret.
4. MAKE A DONATION PROJECT
The first two projects are for donations, which is nice.
It was fun to join in.
I think fifteen Santa sacks will count.
7. ZOOM SEWING
This didn't end up happening, but there is always next time.
8. MY LAUNDRY BASKET MYSTERY QUILT
I wasn't sure how far I would get with this quilt. I managed to add the borders and have it to my quilting fairy fairly early in the month. I think the borders ended up suiting it really well.
I like to thank the girls who arrange the challenges I join in. They make stitching such fun.
The month isn't over yet, so I may get to sneak in a little more, but there are other plans afoots, so we'll see how we go.
