Yoo Whooo !!!!!

I am delighted to be able to post that I have FINISHED the  "Mystery Quilt."

Even though it was the newest UFO on my list it was one that annoyed me as I didn't like the way the quilt was supposed to come together ..

Sew after playing around with the blocks I make this......

and I really like it now....   Hmm!! what to make for March...

#2 February finish

This Christmas Bag has remained unfinished for a few years now.  I had completed the stitchery and even put the front together so there wasn't a huge lot left to do.

This is one of Michelle Ridgway's tote bag designs called "Amongst the Holly"

.. there is a sweet Robin and holly detail on the ric-rac.

... I quilted the back in a wiggly cross hatch... not too noticeable but it will hold it together.  The pattern called for iron on wadding which I didn't have so I sewed it on!

Righto, Gotto Go... I'm working on another UFO today!!

Two more off the list

My quilt for the camper trailer (we wont be cold ) and a project from a day with Natalie Bird last year. I decided not to make the ipad cover but instead to make a zippy pouch

A Finish!!!

I have finished my little mini quilt "The Vintage Kitchen" by Jenny of Elephantz...
That's one thing off my list and I also managed to sew the binding on one very large UFO....
So hopefully this will also be crossed off soon!
