Is it just the change in the weather, or the influence of Great British Bake Off that has made me bake so much this last month? Probably a bit of both!
Here is a quick recap of my makes in September:
- I started my Winters Lane 8 point star quilt. I am currently six blocks in and I am now having a bit of a break from it. However, my overall goal for it is that it will be complete by the beginning of December. If you like the look of the block, I created a tutorial here.
- Low fat Carrot & Sultana cake from Hairy Dieters.
- The cross stitched heart was my entry for September Le Challenge.
- An oilcloth peg bag tutorial
- Last week, I shared some recipes for what to make with a glut of cooking apples, including this lovely chutney, apple & blackberry traybake and crumble.
- Finally, the Oreo cake that I made my 17 year old for his birthday!
So, with World Card Making Day on October 4th, I really must get going with my handmade Christmas cards. I have already drafted up my design, but in order to get ahead, the production line needs to start soon. It is something that I love doing and if I skip it one year, I really regret it.
I have just completed a quilt top for October's Le Challenge which is on the theme Mix, so I am hoping to have finished the quilting and binding in time. Check back mid October to see the finished article.
If you read my last post, you will see that I picked up some lovely map fabric from my trip to the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycraft show. I am pretty sure that I will make some cushions with it, with some contrast piping. Also, with winter round the corner, I am hoping to make at least one draught excluder this month.
As usual, I am linking up with Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day. What have you got planned for October?
