Stitching News

Rose was super excited to have made her sandwich because now she gets to quilt this beautiful project. She has a few ideas... and you know Rose great ideas!!

Lorna also came for Sandwich Saturday... she pinned a bit and shopped a bit then pinned some more then shopped some more... I'm not going to apologize for having so much wonderful, and evidently irresistible, fabric!!

Jenny is quite a recent fabric collector and finds herself already an addict to quilting... I see no problem there! She used some very strange stuff for her sandwich, I think it was some sort of upholstery wadding, already backed? Each to his/her own.

Tadaaaa and toot toot toot for this fabulous and finished... Made by New Sue, brand new, almost antique quilt... it's been stored and forgotten about... waiting for the perfect amount of time to pass before it's turn to be quilted... and that time has now arrived!!!

Gail finished her very posh cushion/pillow. Doesn't it look great!!
Toot toot toot Gail, It's a fabulous and finished project and it's given me an idea!!

Krafty Karen has started a new project... Beautiful Batik fabrics look sooooo good in applique, Karen's been inspired by Princess Jackie's work for a long time, now she gets to play too.

Gail is using surplus strips to make a top secret project...
PM Pam started it all off with a yellow one... so blame her!
There's going to be a Cushion Bombing fiasco soon!!!

Fabulous And Finished

Sheila made this cushion for an elderly lady who lives in a home. She had given a pile of little triangles already folded to Sheila, knowing that she does Patchwork, and now that lucky lady, Betty, can have them all back... what a fabulous gifting circle!!! Toot toot toot Sheila.

Luna Twerly has finished all four of her quilted cushions... making a full set, along with the fabulous quilt she recently made. Toot toot toot toot Luna, one toot for each fabulous and finished cushion with concealed zips in the back of every one.

Fiona Too made this little quilt for her baby granddaughter... It 's one of the About A Boy panels from Henry Glass... you know... girls love all the things in these pictures too... maybe they should have called it About A Kiddo!!! Toot toot toot Fiona, a fabulous finish!

Jean Bean is on fire this year... she has to be as the babies are popping into this world at an alarming rate and Jean has to keep up with the quilt making! This beautiful, and rather fabulous, quilt is ready for tooting...

Toot toot toot Jean Bean... Lana will love her play mat for sure.

I wasn't kidding around with you...
Jean has already started a quilt for the next bay!!
Go Beano!!!

Waving At You!!!

I am still about...
Been busy with real life lately, unfortunately for my blog, that will all get more time consuming very soon, at least from now and all through March.
There's an important medical operation (not mine)
There's a baby coming (not me, but will be mine!)
There's a sewing retreat very, very soon too!!!
And to put a cherry on top... there's a JURY  DUTY Summons!!! .... like I have time to fit that in.
Shop life....?
Trade show yesterday....
Oooooh my goodness, excited with goosebumps....
I ordered a surprise because I couldn't come home without it!!

I will be back.... Have a lovely week

Stitching News

Norma has been to collect her beautiful Batik Hidden Wells quilt back from the Long Arm quilter. There's just the binding to be done before we get to give a fabulous and finished, tooting, fanfare

Lorna made this housey block quilt using a pattern from a magazine and a Layer Cake from Moda. Borders and backing have been chosen too.

All Day Di was inspired watching me cut up a large pile of T-shirts on our Sunday Sew Day so she arrived for class last week with her very own large pile...

All cut up and designs measured, which takes longer than you would think... We played about with the possibilities for the lay out and chose the sashing fabric... 

Jeannette Dilly joined in with Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt and this is the fruits of her labours. Absolutely fabulous!! Jeannette hasn't quite decided what to do next so she needs a little more thinking time... to border or not to border?

Our Carol made up this fabulous design and had enough fabric left over to make a great backing too. It's all ready to be sandwiched and quilted.

Gail finished her lovely cushion, quilted and all... Zip installed in the back etc... now she decided to make another, smaller but perfectly co-ordinated. 

I'm having a bit of a job to keep up and 'on top' of everything, you probably noticed by the lack of posts and the last two cheating posts with just photos and no wise words from my very good self...
It is what it is though... 
I am trying to be healthy/healthier and it takes a long lot of my time to shop, peel and cook all those blooming veggies... and run (I lie... I mean walk fast!) around the block!! 
Normal blogging may resume soon... then again, it might not be soon! ha
