And Sew On... Something for me!

One of my new year resolutions was to make more things for myself when my husband pointed out that everything I make it for family and friends.

This Block of the Month project caught my eye. It would involve me learning paper piecing and at the end of 9 months, I'll have a fantastic sewing themed wall hanging to go above my desk. Some of the blocks look rather complicated, so it's going to be a real challenge!

I've now completed the first block and I'm rather pleased with it! It's not perfect, but as it's for me, who cares?!

Some of the other people taking part had fantastic tape measure fabric, but I had to make do with some slightly wonky hand embroidery. I really enjoyed choosing the fabrics, although the raised shiny pattern on the solid red fabric doesn't show up well in the picture.

I can't wait for February's block! I'll be posting a picture when it's finished.

Happy Stitching!
