Seeing how successful the last 2 weeks have been, I’ll do an encore of the focus projects :-)
Since it is vacation time and time away from home ahead I have picked 2 hand sewing projects this time.
Moving along from the last 2 weeks is the Sunshine Frolics BOM - now lacking 2,5 blocks of stitchery - and piecing of the last 4 blocks. The piecing will be done by machine though.
Second is the Blomstereng BOM - hexagons, hexagons and more hexagons, by hand.
My goal for the hexagons is to be on schedule when I receive the last package, so I can sign up for the next BOM at New Year without any backlog.
Lappemakeriet always has the very best BOMs, and yes, I am ever so biased :-))
Have you noticed both these focus projects in fact are BOMs ?
I do have a soft spot for good BOMs, but except or the BOMs from Lappemakeriet I must say I am not to fond of BOM kits.
I have noticed that several shops overseas now sell BOMs as pattern only - I like that!
I have my eyes on a new BOM, pattern only, from overseas, but will not order it in 2009. If I still have the urge for it in 2010 I will think about it again.
