Progress is happening...

At last, I have finished my 40 blocks for Bradley's quilt.  Had them all laid out on the lounge floor last night and forgot to take a photo.  But here they are all stacked up in their rows waiting for me to sew them together.  Really pleased to be at this stage.

They are extremely colourful, and I do hope he likes them.  Hopefully the next photo you see will be the completed quilt.  I am definitely over it, lol.
For a wee break, this afternoon I got back to this wall hanging which is no. 3 on my #17ufosin2017 list. Thought I should do something on it.  Happy to be back on it and getting that dratted applique stitched down.

I am happy with the way it is coming along and it should look good when finally finished.
Wow, not doing too bad for January.

Catch you later and thanks for popping in.

Hugs and blessings,

Almost there...

I have been making a huge effort to get all the blocks finished with Bradley's string quilt...there are only 4 more to go. Just as well as my bin is getting very empty, especially with the longer strips for the middle.
It is just too hot to be outside at the moment, so apart from watering (every 2nd day, hand held hose only) I stay inside.  Means I can stitch for more hours than usual. Tomorrow I have to quilt a small top for my friend, so wont get them finished until Thursday.

Tyson was checking things out though.  You can see how dry our grass is.  No need to mow, except for the edges of the garden where we water.
The snapdragons (antirrhinums ) have really come on and are flowering beautifully.  They were tiny little self-seeded plants from my sister in laws.  All different colours too.

Thanks for popping in again.  See you again soon.

Hugs and blessings

Happy New Year, may the scraps be with you!

Oh my gosh, it has been so long since I posted you probably have all given up on me.  My computer doesn't work very well these days and I need to figure out how to post on my phone.
The year finished with a wee flurry and I managed to get three Christmas ufos finished up.  Am so pleased with that.  My Christmas bunting never got finished in time however, so that is now my first finished ufo for 2017.  LOL.
Have joined in with #17ufosin2017 and I've made a list of those 17 projects I want to either finish or make good progress on.  Already started on grandson's quilt with another 8  blocks finished and dragged out my Agapanthus wall hanging which is supposed to be January's project. (no. 3 on the list was drawn out).

Here's a couple of photos.  The first is a 3 zipped pocket bag I made my sister for her birthday.  Used a combination of stash and bought specially fabric.  Joyce loves cats so couldn't resist the gorgeous purple cat fabric.

This Christmas wall hanging is one of the ufos I managed to finish.  Am so pleased with how it has come out I don't want to take it down...hehehe.

So there we go.  Small catch up and will try and stick to small posts in future.  Thanks for coming back.

Hugs and blessings to you all
