About Swaps

This year i haven't had a lot of chance to get together with my sewing machine. Various personal reasons apart...the only thing that is keeping the needle in my hand these days are swaps. The mini quilt swaps mean i could easily juggle my other priorities with sewing. I began with the Home Sweet home Mini swap for which i made an embroidered mini quilt for my partner.

My mini quilt with all the goodies that i sent my partner!

The ease of the project along with the creativity encouraged me so much that i signed up for a few more swaps. So all i will be posting henceforth are my swap items. I really love these swaps on Instagram. What an absolutely lovely way to keep creating and make friends in turn!!

On being an intermittent quilter...

I am, at this moment feeling very smart. I have coined a new phrase for my infrequent quilting related activities. I will now call myself an 'Intermittent Quilter'. Other things like work, the kid and general stuff keeps popping up in my life regularly to dissuade me from hooking up with the machine. 2015 began with a resolution to sew something every might notice i didn't give myself a very unattainable goal. The God of fate and resolutions didn't really like my decision. So i had loads of work coming in....which is good....the kid suddenly demanding a 'something interesting to eat' for every meal and social engagements popping up with alarming frequency. Well, all this justification for just one project in the past 2 months. 

This isn't a's a bedspread. I made it for my cousin who got married in February.
