More free-motion fun! I started with the aqua sashing, just a wave, then did the doodle-y flower meander in the big strips. Then I did the loops in the brown sashing. Not perfect, but fun to try anyway.


The Pregnancy Care Centre Sew-Along is nearly finished - the deadline for entries in the Flickr group is the last day of February. My friend Berritt of Birdiful Stitches has generously donated some pdf pattern packages for me to give away to those who have sewn along! 
Berritt has a great selection of digital sewing patterns, ranging from patterns for soft toys and cloth diapers, to camera accessories, e-reader and tablet covers and carriers, and children's clothing. I've used some of her patterns myself before, such as the Sophia Holiday Party Dress twice, several sets of luggage tags, an Ipad messenger bag, and quite a few Fattycakes diapers.
