Holidays Almost Over, Some Finish, Some Progress

We've had a lovely week with the two kids and a friend at home but it will soon be back to just the two of us. I have managed some sewing inbetween housework, bookwork and feeding everyone.

The little wall hanging was completed for our Girls Night In last night. Everyone who attended had a lovely evening. Once again Kerry did a wonderful job in organising this fund raiser for Breast Cancer Research.

#1 Finn's NYE Challenge ~ I now have everything ironed onto the queen bed quilt and all I have to do is secure them with a blind stitch. I'm still undecided as to whether I try to quilt it myself or send it away for quilting.

#2 Finn's NYE Challenge ~ I've been doing some more machine quilting on the Rainbow Wall Hanging and worked out a pattern for the last blocks so it's progressing along as well.

My PIF Gifts reached their destinations during the week, that's a relief to know they've arrived safely. Thanks Gina and Nancy for playing along, it's wonderful to meet such lovely ladies. To follow the rules of PIF to the 'T', I still have one spot left if there is someone who would like to play along. First to ask to join via a comment here, will be the lucky third although I can't promise it will be one of these bags. See here for the full rules. You will have 365 days to send your gifts on.

Friday week ago I received this very sassy lady in the mail, my September postcard. Now to think of an idea for October.

Also time to start on my little quilt for ALQS. I have a pattern and some fabric, hope ?????? likes my idea while keeping with her colour preferences.

Time to hand the computer back to DD. She's been extremely busy with research and assignments while home so I've let her have the run of it. Though I've still managed to keep up with most of your blogs when she takes breaks.

Quilting Wishes


  1. The bags look very lovely.
    I've enjoyed browsing your blog. Thanks for visiting mine.
    BTW thanks for the photos of your roses. My Grandmother had a wonderful garden of roses, including the ones you have shown here. It brought back wonderful memories.

  2. Wow, your bags look very nice. I like them.
