Trusting my Instincts!

Despite some warm Summer weather and a busy (for us!) social calendar,

I have made some progress on my swap sewing!

My totally silent partner in the zipper pouch swap will be receiving this design....


based entirely on her mosaic!

Zipper is ready and a lining possibility being auditioned too?


I hope to have this finished soon!

My FLQS partner is into solids so I have modified the original 'Spiderweb' 

block...


to look like this!

And here is an idea of how the whole mini might look!

The colours are a little 'off' in this photo!

It is almost entirely made from solids, which is challenging me somewhat!

(I just wish I had access to a better range of fabrics.)

Never mind, I intend to forge ahead and trust my instincts!

Happy sewing!
