365 Challenge

Hi friends,

it has been such a long time since I posted some news on my blog. Lots have happened meanwhile. I managed to go on with my project and only stopped for 2 weeks while my son was visiting the island. After that I chatched up and we already passed half way.
I won't post pictures of all the past weeks...only a few and the first six month work.

When we changed from the 3" blocks to the 6" it was quite difficult, they took a lot of time. Now we are back to the 3* babies and it is very relaxing!! Here new 3" blocks.
The challenge is still fun and I enjoy it very much. Hugs.

365 Challenge progress

Hi friends,

as I promised im my last post every Monday is showing day.
Here are my first 7 blocks.

And here blocks 8 to 11, plus bonus block of 1st January. 
They are really starting taking shape. For the moment all the blocks are very easy and it takes more to chose the fabric as to sew the block. But I'm enjoing it and wait every day for the next one.
Have a great week and see you next Monday.

Hi friends,

First I wish a Happy New Year to all of you! New Year and interesting news. 1st of January I started a new project that I will introduce to you. Perhaps some of my readers are already participating too, or maibe others will be interested.

This is the finished project! Its name is 365 Challenge and you can find all information about it HERE. Every day you get an email with the directions for the daily block. I hope I will be able to follow it during the year.

Here are my fabrics. I will do it all in neutrals, to give it a more modern look.

And here you see my first three blocks.


So far it is easy and fun to sew, but later on we will have some more difficult blocks.

Have a nice week-end.
Hugs. PINK
