Just as one thing finishes in the sewing room, she goes off on a tangent and starts something else. That is just the way it is around here.
This one is finished and was only started about a week ago. Finished in record time!!
This is the quilt block keeper which Teresa has done a wonderful tutorial on over at her blog “All Things Vintage”. Thank you Teresa, your instructions were so easy to follow and I got it made up with no probs at all. You can find the tutorial here. At each end of the tube, I used yo-yos and glued a nice gold button on to them.
What beautiful fabric you are thinking? Right? Well, the fabric came for my birthday from Judy across the seas at Michigan. Judy has a really delightful blog and she is one kind and generous lady. Go visit her at CJ’s Stitching and Blooms. I just love how the fabrics made up, and the quilting feels gorgeous and soft on the inside piece. Hope you like what I have done with your beautiful gift Judy.
Now my Sashiko blocks (one of my starts) won’t be all crushed up like this because I now have somewhere to store them. I started another large piece of sashiko last night. Something to do in front of the tele.
Another start has been February’s art journal quilt (yep, I am a bit behind with these….. ahem).
Another finish is Bonnie’s Quilt. Even got the label on! I have tied this quilt with the same thread I did the herringbone in – Perle No 7, I think. Just wish I had doubled the thread to tie it now, but it is too late now. She will love it anyway, and I hope she doesn’t read this, as it is going to be a surprise for her 27th birthday in July. So, this time I am actually ahead with a project. Good Stuff.
And apart from the starts and finishes there are a lot of works in progress. Oh well, can’t sit idle can we?
