of the kinky kind!
I have just got back from a week away at my in-laws with the kidlet. I love these little breaks as the Grandparents are always happy to babysit, whilst I turn their living room upside down with all my sewing crap.
I had a little list of things to finish/put together which all got shelved in favour of my Kinky bee quilt. My bee month was July and I asked for a 19" circle block using a pile of my rainbow scraps, my fellow kinky's did not let me down!

I bought this Angela Walters quilting course on Craftsy, which encouraged me to try a bit more than wonky wavy lines with the quilting. I was so glad I did, the quilting took about 15 hours and I went through 20 bobbins but I am thrilled with how it turned out. Now just have to decide on binding, though I am leaning towards Summersville Weave in charcoal.
I managed a few other sewing bits and bobs as well last week, but will save them for another post. I also got my Mouthy Stitches tote in the post today and nearly wet myself with excitement, but that is also story for tomorrow ;-)
