Lily's Quilts

It's Fresh Sewing Day over at Lily's Quilts, which gives us all a chance to reflect on the last month and start planning the next, sewing-wise. And, let's face it, spend as much time as we can checking out the loveliness that others have created.

So here's my October in finishes:

which equates to one quilt (for the lovely little Alex), three sets of Bee blocks, one swap tote (and key fob which I failed to capture as a photo - sorry) and a gift bag for my 3 year old niece's birthday.  I could have sworn it was more than that but on reflection, I've also started 2 baby quilts, one Swap based cushion cover, 4 purses for Christmas gifts and a skirt for my sister so not bad in the month when I started teaching again for the first time in 18 months.  Yep, I'll take that!

This time last year, the wee man asked if he could join in with Movember and so he did, raising over £300 for the charity (beating his grandad in donations!)....

"really mum?"
We're in negotiations about this year's hirsute attempt :)  Watch this space!

Oh and it's voting time for the BQF Fall 2012 over at Amy's place.... (ahem... # 275...ahem....)


  1. Yay I'm going for the thought of quality not quantity this month! Well done.

  2. You have done all this and returned to work? Not to shabby, I would say. Di x

  3. I love the Movember pics, so cute!

  4. Some great finishes there! Happy Movember!

  5. That tote is fabulous! I think your little guy wears a mustache very well. He's quite a cutie!

  6. Fab tote- love the colours. And who wouldn't love a muzzy like any of those on your wee man!! : ) Ange
