finishing off

I am really pleased to finally report a finish! The blocks sent to me by the First Quilting Bee ladies have been turned into this wonderful hanging for the upstairs landing. Isn't it brilliant? All the blocks are amazing and I have made some great new friends. I am so happy to have joined three quilting bees - I would love to join more but have to be realistic about the amount of time I have to spend sewing. I have to accept that at this point in my life, with a full time job, two young children, an allotment and the need to get at least eight hours sleep each night my sewing time is a lot less than I would like it to be :-)

I completed the next set of blocks for the same Bee - the lady they are for rerquested stars of all types, suspended in a white background. She sent over some lovely blue and green fabric for me to play with. I have discovered that I am not very good at following a pattern (the friendship star) and need lots more practice with accurate cutting out!

Finally I could not resist buying this amazingly cute donkey and wellie fabric from here. I have no idea what I am going to do with it - I just had to have it, you know how it is :-) Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.
