Hand Quilt Along – 18/08/19

Hello everyone!

I almost forgot but I didn’t! Here is my update on my english paper piecing and I have some progress yet again. It’s a bit hard to tell but I’ve added a lot on the sides so that most of the width is done.

I actually have been crafting a lot more recently too, I’m slowly but surely getting my crojo back and it sure feels good! I’ve been a lot more active on Instagram in the last few weeks and I’m planning on doing a big blog post soon with all my recent finishes.

I hope you’ve all been wonderful, and until next time!

Hand Quilt Along – 28/07/19

Hello everyone!

I am still there! I’m so sorry that I missed so many updates, but what can I say? Having an active little bub has been really crazy and doesn’t leave much time for sewing or for anything else. I have made some progress on my EPP though (in the last few months 😂) so here it is!

Since last time, I was able pin the layers together and it has helped a lot. I hope that everyone has been well and hopefully I’m able to make the next update!

Hand Quilt Along – 14/04/19

Hello everyone!

It is time again for an update on my EPP. I have done quite a lot of quilting in 3 weeks and I think it is just about time as it’s starting to get cold here and I’m sure baby Clark could do with a warmer blanket.

I have decided to quilt around each “heart” shape and I love how it looks. I’ve taken my progress picture from the back so that you can see the quilting better.

I’ve probably already quilted about 1/4 so hopefully this won’t take too much longer before I can cut it back to size and bind it.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful 3 weeks!

Hand Quilt Along – 24/03/19

Hello everyone!

I did it! My EPP quilt top is finished! I’m feeling very proud of this accomplishment and I’ve even started quilting it (sorry I didn’t take any pictures of the start of the quilting but I will for next time).

I had lots of fun choosing the colour of the thread for the quilting and went with a yellow, as I think it will compliment the colours I have on the top quite well. It just started to get colder here as well so it’s nice to sit under the quilt and work on it in the evenings. I’m sorry that I still haven’t been back to regular posting but it would seem that life with a 6 months old is no calmer than life with a newborn!

Hand Quilt Along – 03/03/19

Hello everyone!

I’m a bit late again with my hand quilt along post but better late than never right? I was back at work on Monday and had to make sure everything was ready for Clark and I!

It was slow progress on my EPP this time but still some progress.

It’s official I only have the top 3 rows to finish! It can only mean one thing, it’s time for me to go to the craft store and buy a big quilting hoop!

I hope you’ve all been great.

Hello readers!

It seems that I’ve been caught up in life again and forgot all about my blog but at least I’ve made some progress on my EPP! If in the mean time you are interested in my other projects on the go, I’ve been posting a couple pictures on my instagram account (my username is EmmaCraftsDesign).

Mr Clark has been a handful too, we’ve been busy going to the pool, to the gym and visiting his little friends and he is loving life!

Here is the progress on my EPP.

I think I might have a finish by next time! Hope you have all been great and that I’ll be able to catch up on some blogging.

Happy Sunday and Happy New Year!

I cannot believe that I have neglected my blog so much over the past month! Christmas has been a crazy time in our household with people visiting from all over but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t done any crafting, on the contrary.

I actually have quite a lot of progress to show you with my EPP and I am planning on having a regular craft update coming soon, as well as reporting how my 18 for 2018 challenge went.

Here is my progress shot!

Only a little to go before I start the quilting, how exciting!

Please don’t forget to check on everyone’s progress and I’ll be back soon with goals updates 😀

Hello everyone!

Here is our update for our quilt along and I do have some progress to show on my EPP! This is very exciting as there was no progress last time.

I am not sure how much will get done over Christmas with all the family we have visiting but I’m happy with progress!

Please don’t forget to check out what the others have been up to, there are some wonderful projects!

Happy Monday!

Wow I can’t believe I actually haven’t blogged in 3 weeks. Time has just flown by and my hands have been very full with Mr Clark. I haven’t done much work on my EPP over the last few weeks (or much craft at all) but I guess that was to be expected with a newborn!

As promised though, here is a picture of my little progress (can you spot it?) with Clark on the blanket!

Happy Sunday!

I’m happy to report I have done some sewing despite the love overload and interrupted nights I’m currently receiving from baby Clark. Which means that his EPP blanket top is getting closer and closer from being finished.

So that’s another decent portion added and one happy Emma!
