Hello Sun February Block

I’m a little late posting this.┬áJust a few days but still……

I have no excuse, other than the fact that I finished this project a week or two ago and then happily tucked it away in it’s protective envelope SO pleased with how it turned out.

Then Lil Miss P grabbed my attention and I got on with being a Mummy and then flitted off to start my next project and forgot all about posting an update.

What kind of blogger am I? I hang my head in shame.


Anyway, I’m here now. And so is this!

Hello Sun January Block

It’s begun!

The very first project of my 2014 Craft Project List has been started.

It’s taken me a few weeks to get going on my list. For some strange reason as soon as I published it I thought up a whole heap of other craft projects that I wanted to do. I mentioned in the 2014 Craft Project List post that I knew I would end up doing plenty of other things, not on the list. But I didn’t expect them to all come tumbling into my mind the minute I committed to a set list of projects to tackle.

There’s probably some weird psychological reason for that but I never ended up studying psychology like I planned to so I don’t know what it is.

All I know is that I finally started my first official 2014 project, which is exciting.

I decided to start by doing one of the items on my list which I’ve wanted to do for ages.

The Hello Sun Quilt blocks.

Hello Sun QuiltThese block designs were originally published by April Mae Designs as a block of the month quilt along. I couldn’t take part in the quilt along at the time but I knew that I would eventually want to make my own Hello Sun Quilt so I stashed the patterns away for a rainy day, and in the middle of a Southern Summer (which to be fair has been quite rainy) I finally got them back out and with quilt shop vouchers I got for Christmas, I went fabric shopping.
