Busy, busy week

Enough is enough i told myself this week, time to dredge up some desire to machine sew. I finished a number of things.
Advent calender for my youngest grandson, late i know.
His Christmas stocking. After that these 2 stitcheries

Both by Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse Designs. I really love these Christmas stitcheries Natalie puts out every year.

Next day i was back at it to finished off more projects
An Annie Downs of Hatched & Patched stitchery
A Gail Pan stitchery. It is supposed to be a cushion with a frame of triangles around the stitched part but i just went for a simple hanging. Next i finished my grandsons name swag.
The cute pattern is from Michelle Ridgway of Rag Tag Stitchin'.

 I had hoped to get binding on 3 quilts next before the next arrive back but it's been a wee bit hot & orthodontist appointments had to be seen to.

Wednesday & Thursday afternoon/evening saw me cutting & gluing the joining pieces for Icecream Soda. There is over 400 pieces in this bag.
Last night i made a start on joining the blocks up
I think i'm going to be here a while as it's very slow going. Well i'm off to try & get those bindings on the quilts.

Happy stitching,
