What I have been up to

Seems so long since my last post but we managed to spend some time away in the sun.  I have been going to a few sit and sew days so I have managed to get some stitching done.

This a flannel quilt for my nieces first birthday next year, at the moment it is at the quilters (getting in early).

This was a ufo that has been sitting around for a while now.  Rosalie Quinlan It's a Redwork Christmas. (needs to be quilted)

2015 Fig n Berry bom Christmas quilt. (Another one needing to be quilted, the quilting pile is getting big)

Gail Pan's A birdhouse home.  I decided to frame this one and have it in my sewing area.

A Festive Star by One Day in  May.  Perfect size.

Andrews bag to hold his Ipod, I pad, and headophone, he is very happy.

Well of to find another Ufo.

Little finishes

Mum asked me for some more knitted socks for Christmas so I have made her 4 pairs.(hot pink, blue, red and purple)
I finished these bags a while ago but need to get the fasteners to close them.
Friday night I started this stitchery by Gail Pan designs a birdhouse home.  I am wanting to frame it but I cant find a nice white pattern frame so I think it will sit for a while.

Have a great week I'm off to do some hand sewing today.

Stitched In Time July 2016

Yesterday I got to attend another fantastic day run by Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann, these days are filled with lots of chatting, laughter, food and some sewing.

First up is what was in our good bags that greeted us on arrival.

As usual it's hard to pick which one to start.

I started on Gails armchair caddy and finished stitching last night.
Great to spend a day with these girls

Thank you Gail and Ramona for another wonderful day.
