Well! I never expected to get to number 10 so quickly, but it's great, because having a weekly project to blog about is really making sure I actually sit down and do some sewing - maybe not on a weeknight when I'm knackered, but I do at least try and get something done at the weekend.
So far this week I haven't managed to do any sewing for myself, but I did go to my friend Natalie's house and help her with a project. I say helped. I got a bit overtired and ended up cutting the fabric wrong. I felt pretty bad about that, but I'll make it up somehow. At least it was only a couple of bits.
Anyway, I'm teaching Nat how to make quilts, bit by bit, and she's getting the hang of it. Natalie's a jewellery designer and she also sells vintage costume jewellery so she's got the ideas and designing side of things and just needs help with learning how to put it into practice.
The first project I did with her was making a cushion cover. We designed it together, using simple piecing to create her initial and border it with lots of lovely fabrics... Here's the photo.. It turned out pretty nice didn't it?
