What i've been doing.

In between binding & cleaning last week i did manage to work on some other projects.
BOM's from Shell & Paula,
the embroidery part of a cushion pattern by Michelle for the Christmas club,
 & blocks for a quilt to be made for the out going president of the patchwork club. Sunday saw me back at the sewing machine to bind 4 more quilts.
These flying geese blocks were leftovers from a quilt i made about 3 years ago. Thought they would make a nice topper.
I did this as a BOM back in 2004/05 i think.
This isn't a UFO. I wasn't happy with the way it was quilted. I unpicked it all & had it quilted a different way. I'm so much happier with it. This hanging was made as a RR several years ago.
I made this sewing set for my partner Lisa in Sandy's keeper swap. I posted a sneak peek a couple of weeks back & as Lisa now has it i can show you it. Last night i finished binding the 4th quilt & now i am waiting for it to dry to take a photo. Just 2 more quilts & i'm done. YAY.

Happy Stitching,
