A finished quilt

After 10 years this quilt has at last been completed. It has sat as a top waiting patiently for me to finish. I'm so pleased to have 1 less thing to finish.

The Christmas cones are for friends overseas along with the pincushion & thread catcher. Still have 2 of those to make. Also have made 2 more doorstop bags. Have been very busy as well sewing knitted lace together for my SIL. As a thankyou i have received some of it & it's very beautiful. Will take photo's when it's washed & blocked. I asked her would she kindly crochet me some edging to put on the giant pincushion as well a small doily for the top & she is doing so. Aren't i lucky. Now to buy fabrics. :) The flowers are blood lillies. I didn't think i'd ever get them to bloom again. Have been surfing the net & discovered some wonderful bag patterns that i just have to have. More for my "one day" list. 2 of them are deceptive though. They may look like bags but really they hold your needles, pins & scissors. Very cute.


 I started FNSI making bias strips. I had several pieces left from when i made the blocks that were long enough to use so i counted how many...
