July is here, and I am signing on for No Buy July…. the tagline on Instagram is #itstimetostopbuyingandstartsewing
I wanted to share my pledge and to-do list with you, so that I can keep track of how the sewing part is going…
There are 4 quilt tops from the Simply Retro Challenge awaiting quilting, as well as the July choice. More on that another day.
I am working on a couple more secret presents for people, that obviously I can’t share the details of here. We will call them Squirrel 1 and Squirrel 2 and Squirrel 3
There is always my Aussie Modern Instabee blocks, June has been posted but July is still to be made.
I have joined a new swap, The Quilty Sisters Instabee, so I need to get started on that for July as well. What was I thinking?
Then there is always the pile of dressmaking fabrics and patterns that I picked up over the last few months, with great dreams of sewing myself a summer wardrobe. Winter is probably the best time to start, right?
On the urgent list is a new dog-bed for Coco. I have bought some fabulous fabric and some poly batting, I will document the process and hopefully make a tutorial out of it!
Also rather urgent is the Candy Ripples quilt which is still laid out on the lounge room floor. I haven’t quite had the sewing energy this past week and it’s been taunting me every time I walk past!
If I get completely bored, I have to learn paper piecing too….
Well, I think that’s enough for one month’s sewing, right? So who’s coming to cook us dinner every night, because I think I’m going to be sewing 18 hours a day just to get through that list!!
