Finishes, Stitched in Time and Friday night sewing in

I am loving getting a lot of Ufo's finished, most of the seem to be Christmas.
 Fig 'n' Berry Christmas
Fig 'n' Berry  twas the night before Christmas
 These were our goodie bags that were on our table at Stitched in Time run by Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann on the 12th November.
 Inside was all these fantastic Kits.
First one I finished I made into a  cushion (Angus has already claimed it)
Next was Holly Christmas Sack
These were Gails kits already sewn and ready to make up.  Christmas banners.
I am thinking of making these into little bags.  Pattern is Decorate for Christmas.

It was another fantastic day meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.

I am on a mission to get most of my Ufo's finished this year at this rate I will be left with 2 bigger projects, so next year I can start on my huge pile of kits to make.

Today is going to be 38 degrees so a good day to sew and be on fire watch.

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

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.

2013 Designer mystery Bom

Another UFO.  I started this one in 2013 it was a bom run by fat quarter shop.  My plan is now its out of the cupboard it will be finished.  Knocking one of at a time.

The plan is one block a day sounds easy right lets see how I go.

I am going on my first sewing retreat soon and I have organised a few hand sewing projects, so I need to get a few other things finished so they dont hit the ufo pile.

Busy busy busy

What have I been up to over the last few days.

I am on a mission for the rest of the year to get some of the Ufo's finished, I am feeling very overwhelmed with the amount of things I have on the go.

First one is a table mat that I started before Angus was born ( he's nearly 8).  It is a Leanne House Design called Summer Garden Quilt.  It fit's great on my table on the deck, so I'm looking forward to sitting out there in the summer hand sewing and enjoying some sunshine and fresh air.

 I have been promising Angus that he could make a quilt, so we got out some batiks and whipped this one up together.,  Angus did the rows and I joined them together, we are going to do a pieced backing to make it reversible.
Tonight's project will be hand sewing.

Wednesday, June 29, 2016


I have decided that today was the day to get this one finished,  it has been sitting around for years.

The pattern is from  Leanne's house by Leanne Beasley called Summer Garden Quilt.         Well 4 x 4 is 12 right   wrong  back to the drawing board tonight need another 4 side stitchery's to get this finished just as well I kept all the material and threads together.
