July Month in Review

The end of July.  The seventh month of 2013 complete and now the eighth begins.  Shocked I am...  Wild how the time is evaporating!  I think the anticipation of Fat Quarterly Retreat made the month zoom by very quickly!!

 So what did I make in July?

I've been busy making things for swaps - QAYG Nesting Fabric bowls, a QAYG pillow,  tea pot and mouse pincushions, + mug rug and a Journal Clutch.  For myself I made a Bucket Bag in black and white with grey lining.  

My favourite 'make' had to be the Tea Pot Pincushion.  After three attempts and 2 hours of my life wasted on making just the itty bitty tea pot handle, I finally got the handle made and attached!  The rest was easy compared to that!  Fun to make though - and so was the Red Mouse pincushion!


 
August looks set to be busy as well!  I shall be making and posting some swap things to a variety of different countries, making bee blocks and working on my WiP list - and make a Christmas present or two :)  Here is my X and + glasses flexi-frame pouch made at FQR:



Hope you had a good month.  Happy sewing.

Your teapot is fantastic. And I could understand that it took time to make that handle.
Your fabric baskets got me inspired to make me some from my fabric scraps.
Thanks for sharing your creativity
