Hello my friends,
I have made progress on some things.
The Country Yard`s mystery
`Whimsical Woodland`.
Block 4.

Framing blocks 1,



My stitching rods came.
They have velcro for attaching which my others don`t.
We brought tape to staple on as seems to be firmer.
Plus easy for use later.
Hubby is going to extend my lap frame to attach for easier stitching.
Progress has gone on this too but will show more once on frame. :)

One of my sisters had a speacial birthday this year 
so made a bag from Lynette Anderson`s book 
`It`s Quilting Cat`s and Dog`s`.
I put a pocket at the front under the wavy edge and some inside,
one with a zip.
I used Lynette`s design of owl from her book
`Stitch It For Spring` as suited fabric the best.
Then a project bag with a pattern and two packets of EPP
hexagon`s that she was wanting. 

Well best get on as stitching other things as surprises but
seem to be slow on these.
Happy Stitching,

From Saturday to Monday.

Hello my friends,
I did have a lovely time sewing and a little stitching.
The third extra block.

All the blocks together

Centre of quilt pieced together.

This is the border fabric but needed to measure as pattern says 6"
borders but it is 8" for pattern repeat. So need to see if
have enough to do this. I did buy extra for binding.
Hope I have enough and use a different piece for binding.

I started back on this BBD .  
`For the Bird`s # 3`

My sleepy helper on Sunday.
Tillie likes the padded seats.

I was hoping to get quilt ready for quilting but I`d rather 
think on it before cutting.

Yesterday`s blocks.

Hello my friends,
these are the blocks finished last night.

Now back to cutting out and sewing the third extra block.
These are for a $25 quilt of nine blocks made sometime ago.
Because of the layout of finished quilt top I needed to make 
the extra for twelve blocks in the quilt.

While moving furniture around Tillie and Peanut
joined in.

The last of part 3 of 
Circle of Friend`s kit`s by
The silver Needle.
This time the gifts where a delightful glass cleaning cloth
with design of pattern on it.
Plus this adorable basket to store pincushion`s in.

A cute little bird sitting off one side.

Stitching with Chookyblue`s Shed Party.

Hello my friends.
Today I was going to join online with 
Chookyblue`s Shed Party.
I pulled out one of my past projects,a WIP
to try and finish the top and maybe ready for quilting.
My start on a few of the extra blocks.

I will go back a few days to our  38th Wedding Anniversaries.
Hubby and I where going out for tea but left early enough to drop in at a shop 
looking for draws to extend my sewing space.

But we saw this lovely dining set.
It extends out so we can have the family of twelve round it this Christmas.
Now our one we have had for over 30 years is on the trailer,
ready to deliver to our youngest daughter
as she didn`t have one.

Now I`m home I`m back sewing but took time out for this post.
Happy Stitching,
