Monthly makes – June

June was a great month for me and it feels like I’ve barely put my sewing needles down.

My daughter gained a Cath Kidston-inspired ric rac skirt which looks great with the iron on Cath Kidston letter I added to her tshirt. A brand new updated outfit for pennies!

I tried something new with an EPP feather, a bang on trend craft kit which came with the latest issue of love patchwork and quilting. The issue also has a pattern for an adorable liquorice allsort quilt which I have put aside for a rainy day.

I completed the patchwork part of my union flag quilt so have been busy removing all my basting stitches and pieces of paper. I’ve spent a good few hours trying to decide what fabrics to finish it off with and think I have made a decision. Hopefully I will get a chance to order them over the weekend as I really want to finish the quilt off and make a start on something else.

June saw me attend my first Blogtacular and get up at silly o’clock to go on the photowalk with Xanthe Berkeley. I crafted with the lovely ladies from Seeds and Stitches over lunch and got to play around with more Annie Sloan paint.

I spent a happy hour at the flagship Paperchase store on Tottenham Court Road, crafting with pipe cleaners and looking at their new AW15 collection. I read All Points Patchwork from cover to cover and made a new case for my sewing machine. Not bad for June!
