March going into April

I have managed to get lost somewhere and forgot to update my web diary.  Work, life and craft group commitments have kept me very busy.

I finished number 4 of my #makeninechallenge on Instagram, what I call my hippy pants, wide legged, fitted high waist and so comfortable to wear.  Body length still needs a slight adjustment but that is for next time.  Fabric is soft furnishing from Spotlight.  Very Easy Vogue Pattern V9320.
Back, I used an invisible zipper.

Front, truly showing my age here.

February 2019

This month I finished three of my "Make Nine Challenge" items.  A lot of time at the sewing machine and not much in the way of home care, only seems dirty after you have cleaned, never seems to get any worse.
Cropped Shirt

Pattern used.


Used the bodice from this pattern,
Quilt top (Charity Quilt)

January 2019

I had some time this month and have started and finished a couple of sewing projects.  For some crazy and unknown reason I joined in the MakeNineChallenge , this is what got me going and now I have to finish these nine projects.
My Nine.
1. Use this fabric from the stash.
2. Sew the Tamsyn Top
3. Sew the Factory Dress
4. Complete the Temperature Quilt
5. Finish this knitted pullover
6. Stitch these quilt blocks together (most likely will end up being a charity quilt).
7. Sew the long trousers
8. Knit the yellow socks
9. Another pair of trousers.
