Weekend stitchin....

It all started with a UFO ......


and I realised I didn't have enough light fabric to make the stars for them....

so I finished off the quilting on 2 of the Trapunto blocks... this is giving me good free motion practice


most definitely a time of going into la-la land....


then I mowed the dirt grass ....



and put the borders are on the butterfly garden quilt


maybe I should keep it as a flimsy... I like it from the back too!


this is a close up of the very pretty border fabrics
... there is a darker pink for the binding and such a pretty backing...
I am not going to hurry into quilting


I have done most of the stems on my star flowers ... now these leaves need to be needleturned on... 


and then I started something new....


I also went to buy some background (this is some pretty from the Papillon range) 
so now I can get back to my UFO that started off my weekend ....


can you tell I've been eating chocolate?


Righto.... gotta go... not sure why but I better do it .....
