Quick Stop

Hi Everyone

As mentioned before we now have family from South Africa visiting so my sewing and blogging are more or less non-existing from now on! I had to rush to get my November block swap done, before it's December! Also made a few siggys , the sewing bits at least, so I can do the hand sewing even with the visitors here.

I promise I will be more active in blogland next year! Here is just a quick look at the blocks Rosemary and I made for each other this month. She made me the cheery Wonky Star and I made a log cabin in greens and browns.

Happy Sewing !!!!

Sew Little Time

I have only a precious few days left to sew before my family from South Africa starts arriving. This weekend the in-laws and in 2 weeks my sister. All in all 3 months of visitors, so please forgive me if you don't see me blogging. BUT I will still follow all of you everyday, as I will have my laptop in bed with me!


I finished my Folded Star Cushion in September which I made for the IFQ group. This was a fun project and although not perfect, good enough for me.


On Saturday I grabbed a charm pack and layer cake, both Moda's Civil War collection and wanted to do something quick, so I sewed a charm on a layer and before you had enough to make a top. It's too small, as is, but I will go find something for borders to make it bigger into a double bed sized quilt. Oops forgot to take a photo of the assembled blocks. Will do so and post later.

On Sunday I grabbed another charm pack by Moda and simply ( I like quick results!) whipped them together. Added a solid border and now just need to go get something for a backing and hopefullly can quickly quilt it before Sunday????  Not so sure if  THAT's  going to happen!
