Looking back on March!

Last month the end of February passed me by in a blur and March was half way through before I realised where I was!

March was a steady jog of sewing, teaching and running 2 Scout groups... I learnt that I don't do evenings very well - getting in the car and going off to teach at 5.30pm after a long day working and looking after the kids is hard!

But I did have lots of fun sewing!


Looking back I have been a bit cushion crazy!

I love the mix of colours and fabrics I have been working with. They are all so pretty! I really enjoyed embroidery too!

Plus I have been developing blocks for the bi-monthly block club at Prema Arts, Uley which starts in July.

March was fun!

April is going to manic! I have lots of one day courses booked in, which means lots of paperwork to organise!

  2. Ooooh my favourite is cushion number six. The colors are lovely!! Did you piece that exquisite central square or is that the fabric's pattern? It looks beautiful against the linen background. I'm not surprised you're tired! What a schedule! :-)
