I hate the first of the month :(

Everywhere I look, people are putting up huge lists of everything they have achieved this month. My list is always so small in comparison. So I have a choice, either put up my meagre list and be embarrassed, or don't put up a list and feel left out.

So here goes nothing!

Binkies on broadway quilt

Bag made with fabrics from Malta

241 bag for my mum

Melody Miller Coffee set

Bead bags for Beads of Courage

  1. Hey! Don't be so down on yourself, you have achieved loads this month!! I know just how hard it is to juggle 'life' with quilting!! You reminded me, I forgot to include the Father's Day Card I made, although strictly speaking it wasn't sewing, but still cute. Oh well, too late now. The main thing is you are having fun with it all, so just enjoy!!

  2. I think you did great! That should be a respectable list of finishes in anyone's book. I totally gave up crafting, sewing, quilting, and most everything else until a my youngest child started driving. I had honestly forgotten how much I enjoyed these things. The only thing I made during most of that time was costumes for the girls' various shows. Now that I don't have kids at home, I can spend my time doing things I enjoy (and thankfully, not so much time spent in the car!)

    I love your Binkies on Broadway quilt. It's adorable!

  3. Forget what everyone else has finished, just be proud of what you have finished! You've made some great things there! Smile! Be happy! =D

  4. Hi Libby. You are doing great!! I tell myself this, "It's a community not a contest". We all have different things going on at different times. I have been waiting years to finally have some time to myself to quilt and sew. Be proud of yourself!!

  5. I think you have accomplished loads this month, my little mosaic only had 4 items in it. It's just nice to be involved and be sharing. FYI every time your name shows up in my rss feeder I start singing, I love that song!

  6. I don't think there is any reason to be embarrassed! There is more to life than sewing, and you have to attend to it! And you've made some really cute stuff--I love that Father's Day card.

    If you're still feeling down, you can hop over to my blog and check out my June finishes, which are less numerous than yours. ;)

  7. Hey girl - go ahead and click over to my site and see what I got done, it'll make you feel a lot better, LOL! I just do what I can, when I can. It's all about enjoying what you are doing. I wish I had more time to sew, but I work full time and I can't change that, so whatayagonnado. I also really like to read, so a spend quite a bit of time doing that when I could be quilting! You got a LOT done, seriously! And your binkies on broadway quilt looks so impressive - really nice work!!

  8. I don't think you need to feel bad about anything. It's not a competition : ) Just enjoy yourself, and we will enjoy seeing your work. Happy stitching.

  9. You have made great accomplishments. Your projects are wonderful. Making beads of courage bags is something to be proud of. Keep up the great job.

  10. That's loads, I didn't do much more in 3 months :)

  11. that's a fair whack of stuff. Love love love your MM coffee set

  12. I think you did very well... maybe the folks who post lots dont have a lot of anything else to do xx

  13. You seem to have achieved a lot to me!! Love that bunny blanket

  14. I'd be happy with those, they're lovely! I didn't even do my June fresh sewing day - almost nothing got done here!
