Hump Day........some finishes
I always seem to do this on a Wednesday lately...not sure why, anyway that's why today's is called Hump Day.
I must admit I'm feeling kind of pleased with myself. I got myself organised & have finished the blue quilt & binding is machine sewn on, green quilt too has it's binding on, finished quilting around the Lion (but I'm not sure what I want for the binding - keep changing my mind).
Lion is now quilted
On top of that my cardigan is now finished too. I haven't been able to find a shawl pin, so will have to make my own. (Have some ideas already, so watch out for that one).
I've been reading the gumtree-designers blog & sent a 'New Beginnings' kit after the Queensland Floods. I've never tried a stitchery in a quilt block, so thought I'd give this one a go. I've just finished block 2, but haven't put the fabric around either block as yet. I did buy 4 beautiful blue fat quarters with this project in mind plus some blue homespun for the back (I love blue). The BOM is called 'Things we love' - check it out.
Block 1 - A Happy Home
Block 2 - Friends
4 fat quarters
In the next week 2 bindings to be sewn down & decide what to do about the Lion....then back to the Family Tree Cross Stitch & maybe some more baby crochet in between....have to see where the week takes me.....
