Karma quilt

 My Karma quilt has progressed to the stage it is almost finished. I just have the filling hexagons at each end to do & then it will have to put aside as i won't be able to add the borders until i've finished moving.

FNwF March

 Yesterday was time for

Cheryll is our lovely hostess & can be found here.

I debated signing up as i'm in the middle of packing to move. I had hoped to get the next 6 blocks of The Schoolgirl Sampler done but i really didn't have the time to choose fabrics, cut & sew.  As I needed to get my doll quilt quilted since it is almost posting time for our swap i decided to get that done out of the way.


I finished sewing the binding down in the evening when i could sit & relax.

Next up was to piece a backing for a quilt that i am getting quilted soon. I found a rather large piece of fabric in my SIL's stash that was just perfect. That done it was back to packing & cleaning. :(

I had to make the decision to take my beautiful ginger cat Garfield to be put to sleep. He had developed an aggressive face cancer which couldn't be treated. Yesterday was the day. It seems really strange to not having him waiting to be fed, or seeing him curled up asleep anywhere.


He is over the rainbow bridge now with my other kitties Evie & Lucy so he is not alone.

The quilt i'm having quilted was partially handquilted by my SIL & i need to get it unpicked. I sat for quilt a while in the evening doing that before darkness had me quit. Need daylight to see all those tiny stitches. :)

Then it was back to Karma.


I added this rosette & the red around it.


& started another for this row of Karma quilt.

Schoolgirl Sampler week 8

 I'm running a little behind with my blocks as we are up to week 9 already. I'd cut my week 8 blocks out ready to sew last Friday but i ended up with a 3 day migraine. Yesterday was spent recovering from it & the medication. Today bright & early i sat down to sew the 6 little blocks.


Now to try & get the rest of the blocks, the remaining half square triangles & the centre block between packing & moving. :)

Project pouch

A few friends & i had been doing round robins & swaps many years ago & as time passed we had stopped. Fast forward to 2020 & a new round robin was started. After we did that a member of our little group suggest we send an orphan block to make something out of & then that would be sent along to the next person. Well after a trip around the world my creation finally arrived in Canada.



This is the orphan block i was sent. I added borders to make it larger.

and the reverse side.

 This is what i received in our orphan block swap

A lovely pillow cover.
