Under the Pressure Foot #29

A little bit of pressure can be helpful to get a job done in time. A deadline for projects and jobs can be very helpful for me. Sometimes I have it in my head I have plenty of time the deadline is two months away and so on. Then 2 weeks before the deadline I hit panic mode because I am not close enough to finishing.
I have a couple of projects with deadlines. Not that it seems to be helping me at the moment.
The first one is my version of the Gypsy Wife BOM. I set myself a deadline of May Project Uninterrupted session. I don't think I will make it.  You can still sign up for my Gypsy Wife Block of the Block on my website.  Just remember if you are overseas the postage will be more depending where you are in the world.  So far one block has been made.

The second one is my Scrappy Flower block for a Row Along in a group I am part of on Facebook. I will be sharing my blocks here on my blog next week so you will be able to get my pattern, you just won't be able to collect the other blocks. My block will make a lovely scrappy row and help you use up some of your scraps. I can see me making a quilt using my blocks so if you see me making more of these blocks in the near future you know what I am up to. This is the test block I have made a little adjustment to the pattern thanks to my block tester Lynne.

Also I had someone ask me had I received my signature blocks yet?  Not yet but they are on their way they have a long trip to get to me. So you will have to wait a little longer for that post.

April's One Monthly Goal Finish

After March's failure to finish, April has seen that project completed with time to spare.

I can't believe I did it this month as it has been just as busy as March and it is not looking like it will ease up soon.

One Handmade- Lucky quilt finished.

This will give me time to consider next month goal's and organise myself for May.

Until Next Time

New workshops have been added

I have been busy adding new workshops to our calendar. You can check it anytime here on the blog under the Event/Workshop tab. I will do a post like this when I add new events and workshops to that page. So if you haven't looked in awhile you will still be alerted that something new has been added. There is still a couple of place open in our Sands of Time Hourglass workshop on the 13th May. The class sample has just come back from being quilted by Valerie of the House of Valerie. The plans is to bind it and take to the Laura Folk Fair but time is short one week left. Lots of other preparation still to be done.

There is 3 new workshops added to the calendar this week.

On the 29th of June I will be running the How to make Wool Felt Workshop. There is a choice of two projects to make, a scarf and a pin cushion. Both are easy project.

On the 8th of July we have the Piping and Zipper Cushion Workshop. This is a technique workshop for you to learn how to make piping and insert a zip while you make your cushion or two.

On the 12th August there is the Stars! The English Paper Pieced Way Workshop. Learn how to English Paper Piece a star and turn it into a simple cushion or wall hanging.

You can find all the details for these up coming workshops on our Event and Workshop page. If you have a workshop suggestions let me know what you would like to learn, that way we can tailor the workshops around what you would like to learn.
