    Thanks :) I’m slowly getting better. I quite the methodical process and the little thrill when all the points match up! The pinwheels were fun.

    Thanks, me too! :)

    I like the pale fabric borders around each block you’ve done. The I Spy patchwork quilts I made for nieces beds had 400 pieces to each quilt, using 9 patch blocks. If I ever do another one, I think I will put pale borders around each block like yours.

    My first attempt at Pyrography , the red ink ran when I varnished them it was supposed to be permanent marker.
    There are a lot of mistakes that you can not see in the pictures , they are for 2 of my Great Grandchildren for Easter
    instead of chocolate , they are boxes with small toys inside .

    Thank you but no real talent involved , I used a rubber stamp for the images and just followed the lines with the pyrography tool
    and there are a lot of mistakes that you can not see on the pictures , but I did enjoy doing them.

    No :( I've been snowed under lately but the end is in sight thank goodness. I've got a quilt planned for my mum's birthday and then will have a go at doing some more collars - I want to learn to do fabric ones as I've only done ribbon so far :)

    I've just made my first proper fabric one today, I'm not very good with fabric. But have some lovely Disney fat quarters so made this one for Jasper.

    Followed a YouTube tutorial and used hemming tape to make it easier to hold together before sewing.

    That's really good! Can you remember which youtube tutorial you followed?

    Thanks for the tip about the hemming tape! Will definitely try that.

    I followed this one.

    Watched quite a few different videos but I liked the look of sewing the webbing to the rough edge and then folding and using the hemming tape looked the easiest with my wonky sewing skills! :)

    I’ve been doing a few quilt blocks just to improve my skills. I love the snowflake but not such a fan of the heart or Celtic cross. (I just use scraps from my stash, hence the random fabric choices!)

    I think they're lovely, all of them. You are very clever.
    I'm really struggling with sewing even a straight line with my sewing machine, I just keep practicing on scrap pieces of fabric, I guess I'm getting a little better but it's not great.
    I've never owned a sewing machine before and I think I'm a little afraid of it! Or maybe afraid of breaking it.
