Fortnight round up

Life seems to have (again) got in the way of making and blogging, but her is a bit of a round up of the last couple of weeks . . .

 

We held a crafty church special and had a bunting production line - and made 35 yards/metres red white and blue bunting

 
The next day the girls and I walked / ran / walked 5k (about 3 miles) for cancer research - if anyone would like to sponsor us just zap me a message and I'll send you the link

 

(I *just* survived!)

 
That afternoon we had Kids Crafty Church - these two awesome girls learnt how to use a hand crank singer and made another 8 yards/metres of bunting

 

I made some more at home, and this is the finished 80 yards/metres around the village green for the queen's birthday

(Actually it's red white blue AND green - all the fabric was recycled from shirts, dresses and donated fabrics!)
I spent some money and have organised my threads
 
And I bodged some replacement candle holders for my garden candelabra

 

I've stitched, pressed and cut more blocks for my planned zig zag quilt

 

And practiced some screen printing for a class

 

Phew! Not too shabby as I'm working 40 hour weeks!!!!!
