But after a little emotional blackmail from my daughter ("Mummy you never make me anything anymore" in response to the 2 finishes for her sister in January!) I did start (and finish) an Economy Block Pillow for her bed. I couldn't justify starting another full quilt as my WIP pile is so large, but as I wanted to try the economy block out, and she was beside herself at me removing the Christmas pillow from her bed, I figured I could kill 2 birds with one stone.
There was a special request for Hello Kitty and Minnie Mouse fabrics to be used, and as I didn't have much in my stash I found a seller on Ebay who was selling 10 inch squares of several different designs, and figured it was a good way to get some variety into it. I went with the standard 5 inch finished size, and 15 blocks later, the little project was all finished, and C was delighted with the result.
And now as I have 4 weeks (tomorrow) until daughter number 2 is due, I have a few things I would like to get finished/done for her arrival, so this month I will be working on making some fabric baskets for the nursery, some burp cloths, and if I'm feeling up to it, tackling the Weekender Bag I took apart last year- it needs to be adjusted so the sides and base loop fit together better, and would also be another thing off of my FAL list, fingers crossed!
I could also do with a few pot holders and worktop savers for my new kitchen, which should make for reasonably quick finishes
Wish me luck!!!
