.. I certainly haven't been sitting on my laurels!
March is often a busy month in our house including DS's birthday - he was 17 last week which means he can now start learning to drive!
I have managed some stitching time though. The applique circles from last time are going well. I haven't started on the Charisma fabric yet - still practising, but I'm really pleased with how they're turning out.
I have also been making a swap quilt for the Teeny Tiny Squares swap. My partner is like me and loves all quilts it seems, so I decided on scrappy. This hasn't been an easy swap though. My first idea was a disaster, with a 9-patch of 1 inch squares inside a paper-pieced star. Usually I can do foundation piecing pretty well, but not this one! I had to unpick several times, and when I'd finished the block it was awful! Then I thought I'd try something simpler. No dice! This was unpicked and remade a few times too. However, it has turned out pretty well in the end. I've machine quilted it with some hand quilted focus areas and I think it's not bad.
Here's a couple of sneak peaks of the top before quilting, just in case my partner is looking
I've been busy in the kitchen too - made my very first ever batch of marmalade. It took hours and hours, but was well worth it as it's yummy!
