I have been very busy, but I cant share a lot with you at the moment, because a lot of my current and recently comlpeted projects are Christmas presents or birthday presents - it'll be one hell of an update after Christmas!

I can share some patchwork blocks. Firstly one of the blocks that I am stitching by hand - I've completed two and I'm half way through a third:

The corner triangles are brown and haven't come out well. Each block wil be the same and I hope to make approx 20 and create a lap quilt.










This second block is the first mystery quilt block of the month from The Fat Quarters. We get a different block each month and Linda, Barbara and I are each doing it, but with different fabrics: This is my one. I didn't enjoy the Y-seams very much, but the end result is lovely. The next pattern, which we picked up yesterday, seems a tad more complex! No Y-seams but far more pieces.


Today's plan is to make up some Christmas presents. I an share these ones, because Im sure the recipients won't look at my blog! I need to make a couple of cushions in pink and black: I bought the black fabric yesterday and borrowed the pinks from Linda, who has quite the collection. The second pair of cushions will be pirate themed for James, and very colourful!

And you can also see the results of the secret project I'd been working on earlier this year. Take a look at the Fat Quarters website:

I was stitching 12 months worth of these angels: in the picture you can see February (front) and January.
