Mid-week making....



I am pleased to be up to date with my stitched postcards..... (though I would like to be up to date making them up with their fabrics into blocks)


This is going to be a lovely 'travel' quilt.....




ChooseDay sewing I concentrated on getting a few Bondi tops made.... I have fancied this pattern for a while but after past bad makes for myself haven't done anything like this for ages...


This is my pretty one (it will also be my tidy one for wearing out the house) ... the fabrics (and pattern) were purchased at The Quilters Angel and when I saw it I knew it was exactly want I wanted to make with it.... 




Because I have a hard time only making one of something I made some others... this fabric was actually an old tablecloth which had been passed on to me... but it is so beautifully soft and pretty I decided to wear it instead.




This might suit a nightie more... but it is perfect for something cool around the house....




This was my first 'fake' one I made for practice and to see if the pattern was okay... I needed to add some to the shoulders (coming towards the neck as this one shows off my tatty bra...  I also wanted the neck cut a bit deeper so I made those changes to the others....




Here I am wearing the cool light one.... very comfortable.




The Bondi pattern says they are lovely to wear with skinny jeans... which I shall do... when I can fit more than an ankle into the skinny jeans....


Big lovely moon last night.... they say it's a super moon... but it seems to me that we have been having an awful lot of super moons.... I may be wrong.  Not that it matters.. it was still pretty




I received a card today... it was posted just before Valentine's day in the UK... don't you love the little stamp they include.




12 more blocks for One Block Wednesday done.... 



.. and the latest block for Loopy's sampler quilt...



…. as you can see the blocks increased in the number of pieces as we go along....  I do like this one - Quarter square triangles or Broken Dishes I think..... 


I want to do a whole quilt of them... one day....




Righto, Gotto Go.... there is the rest of the week to do.. and lots to be done in it....

More wonderful work this week and I love your tops, those are beautiful.
I have a few tops that I love, but I am more into sweats, so need to see what I can find the the fabric store, then I can remake the old ones I have.

Hey, Fiona! Sorry I haven’t been by in awhile. I see you are keeping as busy as always making some pretties! Love those tops. I think that one is much prettier as a top than a tablecloth, and I think you are pretty clever for thinking so, too!
