I have emptied (some) of the scarp baskets and cut the fabrics into 2.5"scraps. The daughters sewed the squares into blocks for me. This was too random for me I have decided to add some cross or X type blocks to get over the random. I hope to get some more done but the weather has been too good to stay indoors and do much sewing.

|New set up with two machines|
I have made painfully little progress this month. The Girls have been off school since 4/7 and I have managed to make a dress. I can't show you pictures because the daughter has worn it and it is in the laundry basket.
I have however finally gotten round to getting my little Pfaff serviced. It was sewing forward fine but backwards no thank you. It needed a new step motor. Not a cheap repair I can tell you but cheaper than a new machine. I thought it would be worth it as in 2015 the eldest will go up to senior school and sewing is part of the curriculum.
There also leftovers from other quilts. Lets just say that there is a lot. Never ending as far as I can tell.
Well better get back to being a peace keeper. The amount of squabbles pre teen girls can have is amazing. If the UN want to come and practice they are welcome.
I am linking to Lily's Quilts small blog meet. Fingers crossed more will get done in August.

After much uhming and ahing I have decided to make a log cabin quilt out of some lovely Rowan fabrics. Again if I had a design wall and not a floor the colours might have looked better on this photo.
So all in all I'll be quite busy. Fingers crossed there will be a Friday finish but I don't think there will be.
I am linking to WIP wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

Abakhan fabrics. This was bought for this quilt but here in the UK the ground is hardly ever dry enough to get a way without the waterproof-ness.
Now to make myself a dress. Have a good weekend.
Edit: Forgot say I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Friday Finish.

The other finishes were a pleated skirt for me and quilting the nine year old's nine patch. She claims that as her finish though...

I have a few finishes.
Daughter 1's drawstring bag.
Bunting for my birthday.
The fabrics a maybe a little Kidstonque for my liking but the daughters told me I had to make it like that.
My new WIP. I think I need to change the layout. There maybe some seem ripping going on later.
