March Making Madness

Happy “National Craft Month”! I’m not entirely sure which nation this celebration belongs to, but I’m claiming it as my own! Any excuse to celebrate the art of making is a good excuse!

I started the month of making strong! I ventured into my community for a bit of a sewing bee for the local preschool!

Hard at work! And yes, those boxes were full of gorgeous fabric!

Six lovely ladies came together to sew cushion covers, tutus, capes and skirts! We were lucky to have several boxes of gorgeous fabrics donated to us to assist in this adventure! Honestly, we had a better selection of fabric to work with than what you would find in my cupboard right now!

Sew, sew, sew!

So thank you to Tammi for organizing and Caroline, Dea, Denae and Jodie for coming out to sew! Twas a good morning (and a very productive one at that!)

This is what we achieved in just under 2 hours. Capes, Cushion covers, skirts, tutus, fabric play squares.

I currently have two quilts spread out all over my living room. One is for a friend, and will be gifted later this month, so you will have to wait a little longer to see that one! I have taught myself so many new things with this quilt!

A sneak peak of the quilt current;y taking up most of my time! It’s not all dinosaurs…

The other is for the local playgroup. I wandered off with an armful of pre-cut squares after the sewing bee, and have been spending 5 mins here and there putting it together. It will become a floor quilt for children to sit on to read stories etc. I absolutely love making quilts that will be used.

I grabbed enough pre-cuts to make another couple of quilts for the school!

So I’m pretty much set for projects for the next few weeks!

What are you working on?

Have a creative week!
