Back to my own sewing.....


I am very pleased that I am still keeping to do a bit of my own sewing each day....

and the machine has been kept busy with my sisters.... this quilt has worked out 86 x 97 inches …. now it's going to the 'waiting to be quilted' queue.....



Hand sewing has meant another lovely block towards Wings quilt.  This is the little bird under the Umbrella flower....



I have been naughty about keeping up with my One Christmas Item each month so did up these last 3 ornaments that I had felt for.... 


I have had 2 kits of stockings... some I made a couple of years ago and then these ones have been this year... 



As a result I have 2 patterns to pass on if anybody would like....   I don't think I will be wanting to use them again.

Please note, these are patterns onlynot the kits as described on them....  and they are in good but used condition.

If more than 2 people want I will put your names in a hat and do a draw.


Righto, Gotto Go..... I have another Wings block waiting.... 

Want another look at my Disco Dancing Diva's?

Your Sisters look fabulous all sewn together and a good size too.
How many on the quilting pile for you now ????
Pretty Wings block..
Nice felt christmas stocking.
Good idea to pass on the pattern but as I have those I don't need to go into your giveaway thank you.

Your sisters quilt top is divine! Lovely choice of sashing and border fabric. It works so well and takes nothing away from the blocks. It has ended up quite a big size. Well done!
I think your next wings block is a delight too. These are moving along nicely.
Well done with the felt decorations. You have reminded me that I have a few of those to finish too.
Hope you have a lovely week of stitching ahead.

The Sisters quilt is very nice Fiona. I should take your approach and do a little sewing for me each day. I would love to make a few of the Christmas stockings if the patterns come my way. xo

Your African ladies are just lovely, and the setting green batik really sings in this quilt.
