I have been madly quilting for AHQ today and I am taking the night off to sew for me. But before I show you what I have sewn I will show you some recent retail therapy. First up thirtyfive 10 1/2 inch squares in 1930's fabric. These are for use later in the year but it was a good chance to get them.
I really love these bunnies!
And then I ordered a scrap bag of golden sunshine - - yummy yellows. As it turns out about half of them will be good in guys' quilts
and the other half are definitely more feminine.
Last last night I started these mini stars. I left them on the machine so that I finished them before I did anything else this morning.
I really love the little details that you can include.
I got a little more done on my tumbler placemats today. Two quilted, two to go.
And I made a trial pinwheel block too. I have to make pot holders and other bits for the Irish Charity Bazaar this year for the last time. My friend who runs the Australian Embassy Stall, Glenda, and I decided that we need lots of Christmassy stuff. This is my first pinwheel. Now that I have made it I have decided that I like the size so I will make more the same. In the next few days I will try to get a bunch cut out so that they are ready to sew when I have time. I might do some star blocks as well.
