Not much time for sewing.

School is back and so begins the hustle and bustle. Of course I managed a little sewing and have finished 1 WIP .
Also managed a small handtowel with cross stitch for the daughter who constantly loses her handtowels by leaving them behind.
Probably will get very little completed as it is only 10 days till my sons wedding. I can live with this as I have waited so long for this event but certainly did not look forward to paying half of all expenses!

Purple Fantasy

Simply cannot get away from purple quilts. First my mum wanted something with purple and she loved the old fashioned look of the fussy cut hydrangeas'.
Then my future daughter in law asked for a quilt in purples with hearts.

And now my aunt has said I would love a purple appliqued quilt with those snowflake diamond things. My heart froze and I have politely declined as there is no way that I could do that until I retire.
Too many WIP's and UFO's to complete.

Nearly done.

Have completed the quilt top and pieced the  back from left over fabrics. It is a very 'busy ' quilt .
Just wanted to try something completely different and relatively simple using the colours my friend has in her house.
Finishing an embroidered quote for the back and then to begin the sandwiching. I would love to have it completed by next week but..........

Finished stitcheries

Well stitcheries are now complete and ready to be placed in my friends quilt.

Not enough time

Well first week of holidays have passed and I have not been as productive as I could have been. I have finished my stitcheries' (pics to follow later) and a few bibs have been made for those that are pregnant.
3 more nappy cakes to be made and a quilt. People really need to time when they have their babies as these are all due within 1 month of each other.
Good news is that I have wedding shoes and handbag.
 Tonight we are off to the hens night . I must behave, I must behave, I must behave.

Time for tidying.

Well it is school holidays for me. This means cleaning first and completing all the odd jobs that have been left undone during term. However....... this also includes going through my stash , playing with the fabrics and placing them around corflute.
This will be quite a long task as I did not realize just how much fabric has been purchased !

Although the sun is out Morticia thinks it is time to snuggle in her bed. Such a coldblooded little creature she is.

Not much sewing for tomorrow as I desperately need to shop for shoes and a bag for my sons wedding. Only 4 weeks to go till the big day.
