Looking forward in September 2014


Wow, August went by in a flash, didn't it? For me, it was a whirlwind of holidays and a big build up to leaving work, with only a tiny bit of time for sewing (self drafted top and fabric strawberries, shown above). I didn't get anything done to my quilts in progress, but I hope to rectify that this month.

So, what have I got lined up for September?

Patchwork/Quilting
I am determined to finish the chevron quilt that I started a few months ago, but first I need to figure out how the heck to sew a Y seam - any tips would be greatly appreciated! I need to get this one finished as I have been given a layer cake of the beautiful Winter's Lane by Katie & Birdie as part of my leaving gift from work, and I have already mapped out the quilt pattern on Quiltography (this is such a useful app). 

Shop
I have neglected my Folksy and Etsy shops this year and they are in desperate need of a refresh, and as I have time on my hands (when I am not applying for jobs) this is my big plan for September. 

Baking
For the whole of August, I have been without an oven as it needed a repair. Now it is fixed, and with a renewed interest in baking with the Great British Bake Off back on the screens, I am planning lots of lovely cakes. Albert has requested an Oreo Cake for his birthday on the 11th, have you tried an oreo cake recipe that you could recommend? I would love to hear from you if you have. 

I am linking up with Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day - do pop on over there and have a look and see what everyone else got up to in August.
