July Focus


It is a rainy and blustery day, and it is perfect to spend some time in the sewing room. 

This month's focus project in the Chookshed Stitchers Challenge is #1 - and I was already done with #1 in January. 
I've just went through my challenge project list, and I found that I do not have anything there that I am drawn to finishing in July. 
Therefore I picked an Ufo from about 1 year ago. 

I promised my dear daughter #1 a set of placemats..... 
She needs at least 5. 2 are partly done, 3 are not yet started - perfect focus project for this month. They will finish circular and will have bindings. 
Perfect for mindless binding sewing later this month 😁

We are just back from a week on the south coast. Dear husband is going back to work tomorrow, so with a bit of focus I should be able to move both the placemats and these socks forward.
I am shrinking my yarn stash too 😁

💖Wishing you a good day where you are💖



  1. The flying geese add some zing to the placemats. Those socks looks so comfy, perfect for next winter. Happy stitching!

  2. I really like the placement of the flying geese in the placemats. Something inspiring to lead me forward.

  3. Cute socks and yes the placemats are a great fill in project.

  4. Good luck with your UFO challenge for the month. Love the socks! xx
