Fresh Sewing Day - August Round Up!

I think this is only the third time I've done a monthly round up, and I must say - it's really great to do!  I look back at all I've sewn and try to work out how on earth I did it????  But - I did!  August - Oh what a month.....

I had both of these quilt tops finished end of July, but received my SWOON back from the quilter and finished quilting and binding the CIRCA!  I'm still in love with both of them.  The Swoon sits happily on the end of my bed and the Circa is still for sale on my FB Page.

The PINK POSY cot quilt will be up for sale at The Handmade Library's Pretty In Pink Showcase on the 11th of September.  And the Wonky Star cot quilt will be hand delivered to my gorgeous BFF on Thursday - Ssshhhhhhh......

This darling T CUSHION was gifted to a very dear little seven year old.  The big One Direction fan was over the moon!

An iPad cover for my beloved - which was too small because of the hard case he has attached to it.  My first ever mug rug for the Mother In Law was received happily and August's Wombat Stew Queen Alyce will have the two Kimono blocks very soon!

I made a spur of the moment fabric purchase (Ummmm, hello - aren't all fabric purchases done that way?) and bought five yards of Ghastlies (as you do).  Ms Chelsea was thrilled with her dress and thankfully my customers were too!  I've just finished a second one today, and have another two orders to get through.

August was a frock kind of month!  These four were all for gifts.

And this darling Spring frock is for sale in the Spring Fling Showcase, which ends tomorrow night.  If it hasn't sold by then, I'll pop it up on my page.  I think Ms Chloe is quietly hoping it doesn't, so she can steal it!

Soooo, what did you get up to in August?  Are you as exhausted as I am?

I'm linking up (late) with Fresh Sewing Day - You can too!
