So many thing to do, so little time:
The 100 Days Project (started 22nd Feb), IG Quilt Fest (March), Me Made March (instead of May, possibly warmer for us in the southern hemisphere)
100 Days Project: quilting every day? Sow at least one seam, if not several?
What if I committed to do one quilting thing a day, even if it's only sow a single seam? Obviously, some things need a little more than one seam to be finished. But I can do those things when I have time.
I kind of wish I'd started up the 100 Days Project on my Restless Hands quilt, which is going nowhere very rapidly.
So I completed a dress during the week - the Tea House Dress by Sew House Seven - it took me two and a half years, if not more, but it's finally done. I think I won that pattern at a previous Frocktails (2018? 2019?) and I finished it in time for the Blue Mountains Frocktails 2023 event!
I think I'll make a few more of these, they're pretty comfortable and nice and light and casual. I wonder how good it would be in something a little softer and thicker, not quite a nightdress fleece.
I ended up wearing another Sicily Slip because it looked really good with my back tattoo.
The Blue Mountains Frocktails event was heaps of fun - great to meet fellow sewists, to sit and talk with a few people that I knew and got to know better, and also to better link names to faces...
Didn't win anything, but bought some fabric at Minerva's Bower on the way home.
There's also this dress still to make – the pattern I won at the last Frocktails:
Today, this afternoon, I'm going to sew together the striped binding for the last (couple of) quilt(s) that need binding for this collection. This year, I just really want to finish these quilts and get them out the door.
I think I've worked out the balance of blocks for The Spare - a.k.a.”Harry of Windsor” which is entirely made up of the 'spare' blocks of various quilts that I've made through the years.
If I actually manage to finish it in time, it could go for the Sydney Quilt Show, perhaps?
