I am happy to say that it is now finished - stitching, assembling of the stocking and stitching the lining into it. It is ready to hang and be filled this year. Yeah!
Stitching has started on the next one for this year's baby.

My finish for this month is a leaf mat made from a pattern for a skinny quilt. This leaf had been moved from stack to stack wanting to be finished for about 2 years. You may see a different colored leaf in the future but I can't seem to find where I put it but I do remember it all pinned and ready to go. Maybe it's in the basement???
and it is on it’s way to a new home for someone in NSW who may need a little comfort….

I started this either late 1996 or early 1997. I can remember doing the heart embroideries when I was caring for my Dad. When he was admitted to hospital in his last weeks, I was taking them with me to stitch while spending a lot of time sitting with him. I had it assembled, and just needed to add the border pieces to it but once he passed away I had a lot of catching up of life that had been put on hold, to do. These are the projects that seem to end up at the bottom of the pile and forgotten about until it gets uncovered during clean ups.
This one is from about 4 - 5 years ago. I can't seem to find the pattern, so I can't give you any info about it. Sorry. it's lap size.
So I am now at 56 UFOs finished so far for this year. I feel really good about what I have accomplished. I really want to thank you all for your support and encouragements! It has helped so much. I really want to keep up the pace, but I have been slowing down. I think I am tired! LOL....
Anyway, I am in the middle of putting another quilt on the frame, and it's an UFO!

I have at least 15 folders in my Sewing Space - so you might see a few more odd blocks popping up here as folder covers.....

This one is from the quilt pattern "Daisy Street". I traced it out a few years ago, ironed on the pellon, but hadnt stitched it.

Ok….one UFO off my list…..AT LAST!!!!
here she is…..my ‘Tickled Pink’ cushion. You can read more about it HERE
Very nice to have something ‘girly’ in a house full of males!
Honestly, I’m tickled pink! But why does it always take so long to get around to them??? (UFO’s I mean!)
Hope you had a finish over the weekend too!
Sugary hugs xox :o)

This pretty table runner is made from blocks received in the 6 inch group of quilting block swaps Australia.
I love how they all tie together into this table runner, all I had to add was a few setting triangles. It is simply quilted in the ditch around each block I wish now I had done a bit more on the green as it's slightly rippled.
I have also just completed Acorn lane and it's in the post to its new owner in the USA, I really loved making this quilt again, it's so cute. Even Billy thinks so, he gave it the doggie thumbs up ( a tail wag).
I have a few more quilts to complete, and two finished quilt tops to quilt so it's time to think about start some new projects. Having just signed up for two new BOM's and a few design ideas in my head I think I will be keeping pretty busy.

Again, you girls never cease to amaze us!
I’ve spent the last hour or so trying to update the sidebar to alert you to the fact of how close we are to our goal but no matter what I try, it just won’t work…..is anyone else having issues with Blogger today??? (probably just me because I’m soooo excited!!! LOL)
Well, seeing as it won’t let me tell you in the sidebar….I’ll tell you here…..
Our goal is 500….we all know that!
With August’s tally of 43 finishes
and September’s tally of 36 finishes,
that takes us to a grand total of
413 finishes to date (30/09/13)
which only leaves 87 to reach our goal of 500
and with only 3 months to go,
that equates to 29 finishes per month!
Well done ladies….we’re very proud and honoured to be amongst you….you are sooooo inspiring…..!!!!
I’m off to send out the SIF blocks to all our grand finishers and then off to do some catch up…..Anyone want to come and help attack my UFO pile?????!!
Sew many hugs

I am posting this from my phone, I hope we can read it.
This finish was started in 2006 ( yep that's what my instructions say.)
I am so glad to see these 8 little fellows ready to move out of my sewing room.
This is an Eleanor Burns pattern that a couple of friends and I started back in 2000 or 2001! It had three dimensional flowers on it that I absolutely hated. I finished 3 blocks, finished all the baskets for the rest of the blocks and stopped. Tries to muster up enthusiasm for it and never hit the mark! So, I dug it out..took all the appliqués off and then finished it! I had to mix and match fabric for smashing and borders because I didn't have enough. Who knows what my plan was? Anyway??it's done and off my list!
