Still I cannot totally ignore the blogosphere for too long, even though I may not comment, I am still around. Here are some of my favourite projects!
Anna Maria Homer is counting the days to the publication of her new book on Needlework and so am I!! You can see some pictures from her book on her blog - it is full of colours and beautiful patterns. Everything that you could expect from AMH but dedicated to needlework projects this time! You can pre-order here.
Because everyone needs at least one more QAL, you should join the Pervalong QAL organised by Charlotte at Displacement Activity - it is modern, it is fresh and the quilt will make a great statement piece in anyone's hallway. I will be doing it, however I am not sure whether I will get a chance to make it at everyone else's pace. I am starting a maternity leave to do list, so this will probably be high on it!
I had to mention Rashida Coleman-Hale again. No, I am not obsessed, she just happens to make the most amazing projects ever. Look at that clutch she made using her Clouds fabric! Aren't you jealous?? I am - the fact that I am not going out at all at the moment (and probably for the next year) is irrelevant. I want a super fashionable clutch as well!
A bit out there on the colours, but I could see myself making this PomPom collar in white or black or navy blue. I am thinking I need a new style for my life 'after work' and pompoms should definitely feature in it!
Finally there is this cute free embroidery pattern from the Sometimes Crafter that would make me smile every time I would look at it. Possibly another project for when I am on maternity leave (still waiting for the baby to come!).
Finally my new favourite group is Theordore, Gabriel and Paul - a French group singing in English. Check out Silent Night.
So what were your September highlights? What are you working on (come on I know most of you have got some Halloween project going on - let's hear them!). Blog is resuming tomorrow as normal and I have a bit of progress to show you...
I am linking up to Lynne's Small Blog Meet today!
