Making not missing...

So I've been just a bit lax on the blogging side, but I haven't been idle...

I bought the Noodlehead basket pattern to make for my partner for the Sewing Room Swap, then I wished I had the social tote pattern instead.
So I forged ahead and made my own version of a project carry tote for carting various sewing projects far as the lounge while watching Sherlock or Elementary, my usual Sunday night treat before the week begins in earnest! I based it on the tote I made for this swap earlier in the year.

This is what I ended up making for my partner in that swap...I had a hard time parting with this sewing machine cover for the, but it went to a home where it's loved to bits  ..."linda lawsons place".

I had promised myself that I'd do two "block of the months" this year (surely I could find two days a month to sew...ha ha ha ha ha, what was I thinking?)  I've only managed to get two Doctor Who paper pieced blocks made...The T.A.R.D.I.S.
and The Time Lord

I'd really like to get caught up with these by the end of the year...(see above laugh!)

The Great Big stitched Postcard Swap is back for round #6. The theme is celebrate and I've made the cutest little bunting...the card size is just over 6" x 4" so the bunting is fairly tiny. Next post I'll run a few tutorial pictures so you can make your know, just in case you get the urge to make miniature, cutesy bunting of your own!
