Brit Sewing Thursday Linky - 6 March 2014

Just Sew Sue

Thursday came around very quickly this week. Today should see the judging of the 700 entries for the Needlework section of the Jersey Eisteddfod completed. Philippa Naylor is now onto the adult quilts which is slower so yesterday I was able to hand sew the binding of what was meant to be a sewing machine cover from Quilty Fun by Lori Holt.
However when I tried it for size on my machine, it is petite, so will become a sewing machine mat with pockets for my sewing room swap partner. I just need to purchase a mailing box and I will be ready to post next week.

I also completed my spools block for the Quilty Fun sew along yesterday morning. A nice simple block for a busy week.  My Bee in my Bonnet row along quilt will be judged later this morning. I wonder if I should leave the room at that point? We are using aliases for our work so that the judge isn't aware that the maker is in the room amongst the helpers. So far my pieces have attracted two golds, I think.
What have you been up to?

That's a good idea to turn it into a sewing machine mat. I keep meaning to make myself one...just not enough hours in the day. Sounds like you are doing great at the Eisteddfod and Philippa is going to be exhausted by the end of it!

What a brilliant idea for a machine mat, especially with pockets! I can never find anything I need when I'm sewing!!
