17 June 2012, VERY late TUSAL & WIPocalypse

Oh, look, late again!  Evidently I can’t keep a date for anything.

Here’s my ORT bag:

 Mostly browns and greens, because I’ve been working almost exclusively on Forest Walk:

 I’m really pleased with how this is coming along, although I was in such a hurry to start that apparently I didn’t measure my fabric properly, and will now have to add on another 6 inches or so at the bottom.  I’ll let you know how that goes when I’ve done it.  Boo.

I haven’t stitched on any other WIPocalypse pieces at all this month, but I have done some significant stash enhancement.  ‘Cos, you know, I really didn’t have enough stuff.

I stocked up on DMC colours while we were in the US:

And The Silk Mill just had an awesome 10 year anniversary sale, where I got these lovelies:

I also had a busy crafty day yesterday, and finally finished my 144th scale dolls house (the pen is for scale, so you can get an idea of just how small it is):

I also completed a patchwork square, Quartered Star, that I also got while we were in Jo-Ann’s in the US.  I have another square to make up, and a couple of fat quarters of matching fabric, and some bias tape.  I haven’t decided yet what to make with them – they’re actually from a quilt of the month thing – maybe a bag or a cushion.  Actually, probably a bag…who knows?  We’ll see what takes my fancy.  It was as much to see how I did with machine piecing as much as anything else.

Well, that’s all for now, I think.  Happy stitching!
