New Year sewing

I have been doing a lot of sewing recently and I have been having a lot of fun pottering around with fabric and ideas. The downside is that some of the sewing is secret so I can't show you all of what I have been doing just yet.

I have been doing my bee blocks…

These beautiful butterfly blocks are for Lucy in the Bee a Brit Stingy. Lucy gave us an easy block to do and also a more difficult blockm if we wanted to do it. I chickened out and did two of the easier blocks.

Lucy is going to make a butterfly quilt for her middle daughter. I think that it will be the perfect quilt for a little girl.

In the HipBees, Collette has sent us fabric to make an off centre log cabin block. I sewed this up as enders and leaders whilst sewing a secret project this afternoon. It was a quick way to do two projects at once!

One little project that I can show you, is a book cover that I made for my niece as part of her Christmas present. I forgot to show you this at the time.
Once I have my secret sewing completed and in the post I will reveal all.

  1. Great to see you again on Saturday. Aren't you a secret squirrel! Some fab looking blocks you've been working on, enjoy your sewing...

  2. So many secrets in blog land -sigh. Your blocks are very pretty, esp the wee butterflies. Glad you've been happily stitching away.

  3. The butterflies will look lovey all together very pretty.
