Two in one sweep!

Happy New Year to you all! Our summer is a bit on and off - more on than off luckily - so I haven't managed to get as many sewing things done during my annual leave as I had hoped.

At least I managed to make my New Year's resolutions which include completion of 12 UFOs (3 of these king size bed quilts) and only one of these is from before 2012 - and this is after completing 19 items as per the official count on here during 2012! As I have said many times, I wouldn't have gotten there without the encouragement of this blog and it's lovely members!!!

I am notoriously disorganised for presents, so I have joined Wendy's Birthday-Love Stash 2013 with the hope of getting ahead. Not unexpected I was once again ill prepared for a friend's birthday party yesterday, but I managed to complete one of my UFOs. a piece of satin with fmq feathers, into a cushion cover as her birthday present (two in one sweep!):

I hope she finds this to her liking - Happy Sewing!
