Spring is here…….

Spring has arrived and I am so delighted.  The sun is shining and the days are warmer.  It is time to reflect on my sewing for August.

August Collage

I can honestly say that there hasn’t been a lot of big ticket items finished this month.  I have had fun participating in the fussy square swap hosted by the lovely Amanda at What the Bobbin.  This swap has renewed my love of paper piecing so I completed my Harlequin Star, made some fabric and enjoyed sewing my cushion and hexy’s!   Most of all I have had fun…….reading blogs, getting feedback, participating in linky parties and sewing happily!  Whenever I feel that I haven’t achieved much I am reminded that “Big jobs are progressed one piece at a time”.  This quote was said to me by  a work colleague.  Funny how we remember things people say to us.  It is like the light bulb switch just went on.

I trust you have enjoyed August, summer for many of you, and you are looking forward to the days ahead.

I am linking this post up at a Fresh Sewing Day at Lily’s Quilts.  Stop by and say hi.

Wherever you are in the world have a fantastic day.  Thank you for stopping by!

Can see you were busy in august some lovely pieces, tried the winding ways but mine was not successful and still to learn foundation piecing, have a friend who lives in London and she is going to show me when she comes to visit.
