Busy sewing week.

Hmm where to start.

 Ahh with Hannah & Harrington of course. I finished stitching the remaining blocks & yesterday i put them together & added to the top of the quilt. I then frantically checked all my fabric for borders hoping i could use stash fabric & not have to go buy any. Couldn't find enough of the black at first & decided to try one last place & found a large piece of black homespun I'd bought for some other project that never got made. So a happy dance was in order for that find. :)

All done ready to be quilted sometime in the future. Ticked another ufo/wip off the list Though it's now on another list - the"to be quilted" list. :) :)

Wednesday i got out another felt kit & prepped it. I think i bought it back in 2012

I still have to trace the stitchery that goes with it. My light box has disappeared into my daughters room. :)

My next Christmas BOM arrive that day so i ironed it onto my background fabric ready to stitch
I managed some that night.

On Wednesday i also finished Boo Cat off

& put border on this little hanging which i then hand quilted. I added the binding yesterday.

Yesterday also saw this little project put together & the hand quilting started last night
Not sure if i like the way the thread stands out or not.

And finally some happy mail arrived all the way from the US. The doll quilt from the swap has finally arrived & there may have been some excited yelling involved especially when i found chocolate at the bottom of the box. :) :)

The lady who made it stalked me well. Also included were these extras.

Happy Stitching,
