A whole weekend of productiveness!!! Gardening, cleaning the oven, yes, I even cleaned my oven! And sewing.
First up I made my granddaughter a bunting for her bedroom, I thought it would be bright & cheery, it should go with the quilt I made her when she was two.
The butterfly quilt was a Buggy Barn pattern, I backed the quilt with flannel & a butterfly label.
That was back I in 2009, seems a million years ago!!!
I also made 40 bowtie blocks that I can't show you for a few months yet as they are going to be a border on a special quilt I have been plodding away on.
I found some nice hand towels in Brisco's the other day, so today I 'pimped' them, they can go in my gift box, although the laundry one might not make it as it would go nice in my laundry with the rag/plastic bag holders, washing machine cover & peg bag made from the same fabric line.
I also made some Christmas decorations, but I will show them later in the week as part of the link up thingie for 1 Xmas item over at Narelle's.
I didn't finish this next item today, but a few weeks ago, but as this runner was for my friends birthday & that was yesterday, I can now show you!
And last but not least a book finish........it took me a month to finish, I'm pretty slow on the reading front, as I only read when I go to bed in the evening & I don't get far before I'm nodding off!
Another by Clare O'donohue, the third so far, a nice read.
Nell and the gang head to a quilt retreat in the Adirondacks. What’s supposed to be a fun week in the woods soon turns deadly, and one of their own is the chief suspect.
I have started the fourth book, I see on Clare's website, there are two more!......maybe I need to go to bed earlier!
Who's watching the new TV programmes, 'Mr Selfridge', 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'. The clothes are amazing, so pretty! & tonight a new series of 'Call the Midwife'.
Thanks for stopping by to my neck of the woods!
