catching up slowly

Another 2 blocks finished from Verandah Views BOM. Slowly getting them all under control. Now working on Wonky Houses. I'm a glutton for punishment though as i've added another BOM to my collection but i couldn't resist.
I've added Stringybark Farm by missymack. Click on button in my sidebar to see her first two blocks. It think they are so cute.

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mother Day to all. I hope you have a wonderful day. My book finally arrived Friday after a long wait. So much for pre-ordering to have it early. :(. I've finished reading it. It was a s enjoyable as all the other novels written by Jennifer. Been busy buttonhole appliqueing & embroidering a bear quilt. Run out of a thread i need & wouldn't you know it the store a 2 minute walk away has run out. :(

Redwork Cushion Swap

I can finally post the photo of the cushion cover i made for my partner in the redwork cushion swap. I have issues with satin stitch but i was determined to succeed in getting past my "issues". Yes i did managed to get all the satin stitch done. I enjoyed making this cover that i want to make another one for myself & a matching one from this months Australian Country Threads by the same designer.

redwork cushion

When deciding on patterns for the redwork cushion swap i couldn't choose so made a couple of designs up. This one i've kept for myself. As usual it's a Bronwyn Hayes design. It looks great with the cushion i received & the 2 plain red fabric cushions i have on the lounge. I've made a start on this months project challenge.:)
