Bitsa This and Bitsa That.....

I did some large swirls on my Boys Story quilt.... since it has a flannel back I didn't want to do too tight quilting and these swirls reminded me of winds and seas and they help sailboats and kites and things....

It has kept the quilt soft and snuggly..... now the binding.....

My bloggy friend Keryn was selling some of her delightful Christmas creations off her blog shop HERE .....  I could not resist....

These are pompom ones .... look at those faces!

,..... my larger Santa arrived with a mate to keep him company on the trip over....  these two are weighted and sit nicely....

... Santa can sit and his arms and legs change position... this is sitting waiting... (and maybe needing to pee...)

.. this is just chillin'..... (and maybe a bit of flirting!)

... and this is yoga pose.... (and maybe some UMMMMMMMM sounds)

These are going to make a lovely addition to my home made decorations..... they are adorable...

Long long ago I did the stitcheries for Bluebirds, designed by my friend Christine....

I have added the peepers on the sides ....

... here they all are waiting for me to get on and make the sashing....  they really are delightful pictures...

.... but they will have to wait since I am finishing off some secret projects .....

... which may, or may not involve this little friendly stitchery .... designed by Bronwyn Hayes at Red Brolly

Righto, Gotto Go..... spots to quilt, binding to sew, shirts to slice up.....

It's supposed to be a wet cold weekend here ... ...I might need to stay indoors...


  1. Such pretty little bluebirds! Finish them soon, please!

  2. Lots of lovely things happening at your your new friends and the bluebirds are gorgeous x

  3. Your pile looks like mine, lots of things to finish;)
    The bluebirds are beautiful and I can't wait to see them with the sashing.


  4. All your projects are looking lovely.

  7. Very busy at your place, Fiona. I love the new decorations you have bought - they gave me a little chuckle. Good on you with your Boys quilt, the allover swirls sound like a good idea. Also your bluebirds are very sweet. PS The Red Brolly stitcheries are also always a delight.

  8. Love your blue birds. Everything you sew is delightful. You star.

  9. A cold windy weekend is a great excuse (not that we need one, do we?) to stay inside and sew!
