Mini Archie's February Furtle Around The Blogosphere

Archie The Wonder Dog

Hello!  I hope you haven't been blown away or had the beck perilously close to your front door this month? It's definitely been a bit wild out there at times...

...and you'd think that would mean loads of sewing, wouldn't you?  Not exactly!

I've made another three LV blocks:

And I've made progress on my jeans: I've cut out the legs and a makeshift yoke and waistband and pocket linings in canvas, tacked them all together, and have had a fitting session with a friend.  I'm now ready to undo all that, cut out the remaining pieces in denim and make a start on the front.  All of the adjustments seem to be on the back, so I'm going to make up the front and then tack the back back on to see if things like having a zip in (rather than being pinned into them) make any difference before I make any of the adjustments.  A bit more work, yes, but worth it to get a pair of jeans which fit!  Having said all that, when I was in them the other day, they were already more comfortable and looked better than the pair I'm wearing, so all the work is well worth it.

And that's it for progress this month.  I know! I've made good progress on my sewing room sort out - there'll be a post on my instagram about that on 1st March if you're interested.

There has been a parcel delivered and this one is for Billy!  Here's them checking for pirates.  The rest will be on Mini Archie's instagram soon - you won't want to miss what's inside, it's a beauty!!!
Sorry, we can't stop to chat, we has important Mandatory Pirate Checks to carry out!! *serious face*

Linking up to the February Furtle 

If you're linking up, please add a link (one per person, please) to your blog post, which could contain: a mosaic of all you've made in the month, something you've made/started/worked on, a goal which you'd like to achieve in the next month (and then in next month's post you can reflect on that goal and set yourself another one - I find this particularly handy if I'm in the midst of a big project and finding the making of hundreds of blocks to be interminable), anything crafty you'd like to share. This isn't just for sewing or quilting, but is for all crafts so if you knit, make lace, make clothes, do anything which could come under the heading of 'craft', then please link up. Please visit the link immediately before and after you and leave an encouraging comment, and more if you can manage it - we all know that comments create joy, so let's spread some around. Also, please treat all the linked posts and their authors with respect - I want this to be an inclusive space for all crafters and crafts and all are welcome. If you're not sure if you're welcome or you belong, you do - this is by no means a closed space and if you want to join, then you are most welcome. If you need help linking up, please leave a comment and I will do my best to help. Please add the Furtling button to your blog post: copy the code below and paste it into your blog post - it should then magically appear when you publish your blog post (I'll do my best to help if you have any problems) and it will help people find the Furtling page with all the details of the link up.

To link up, go to the link at the bottom of this page and click on 'link up' (it's a blue button) and then add your link (website URL), a title (this could be your blog name but could also be something interesting to draw people to it (keep it clean!) if you prefer), and your email. This last one doesn't appear on the link (I will have access to it - I won't use it unless there's a problem and I need to contact you) so don't worry that you're about to share your email address with the world (or the handful of people who find this link), you're not! The link will remain open until 14th March; if you're seeing this post after this date, I'm afraid you can't link up to the February Furtle, but you can link next month if you like.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
