Index cards and....well, that's it really

It's been two weeks since my last blog post and I don't have a lot to report...seem to have lost my sewing mojo somewhere. Anyone seen it?

But I have continued with the ICAD Challenge and here's a few of my favourite recent cards:

Maybe normal service will resume soon.

Checkin in with the Challenges

Another ring added to my Hexalong project:

10 rings of hexies
10 rings close-up

That's 331 hexagons stitched together. Phew.

And, yes, I've been continuing with the ICAD Challenge:

icad september #6icad september #7icad september #8icad september #10icad september #12

As you can see, I haven't really stuck to much of a theme with these ones and I did (shock horror!) even miss one day, though still on track to complete 25 for September :-)

Now all I need to do is start on something for the Christmas Through the Year Challenge for September. I am feeling a bit uninspired :-(

Seeing Red

I've gone with a red theme for my most recent index cards:

icad september #2icad september #3icad september #4icad september #5

I did prep 7 index cards with red acrylic paint, thinking I would do a week's worth of red cards, but I feel all red-ed out now so maybe I'll save them for later.

I thought I'd better share a bit of sewing, just in case you thought I'd forgotten this was meant to be a sewing blog. Here are a couple more blocks for my Liberated Wife quilt:

Linoleum
waste not

I love the "Waste Not" block but not so keen on Linoleum...I think it's the colour of the solid I used. It's just a bit too pinky pink. Meh.

I am still beavering away at my hexagon charm quilt, I have about 6 or 7 more hexagons until I have completed the next light coloured round. I have had to raid my mum's stash tho, cos running short of light colours, so not sure what I will do when I get to the next round! Maybe a white/cream charm pack..?

That's all, folks.
