Am trying to finish something!!

Working in snatched moments to get some of these projects completed...or started!! So much for not starting new projects until I got rid of some of the WIPs!

Have batted and backed this and am having a go at quilting it on my trusty little machine.
Am going with straight lines to keep it simple. Looks great so far!

Have fallen in love with this daisy fabric so plan to try making a quillow.
Will do some cutting tonight while we all watch a movie.

At some stage I need to put together these giraffes!
And last weekend I picked this back up from my long-arm quilter - (this is the before photo)
so I am keen to get the binding on!

New bag

Another bag creation - this time a gift for the awesome Glenys Macbeth (my ex-neighbour) who has a heart of gold and is also quite an absolute inspiration! 
Front - was based on a pattern called 'Cappucino Tote' by Marilyn Bell,
as printed in Australian Patchwork and Stitching magazine Vol 11 No 5.

Back - fabrics were from Spotlight

Craftsy BOM project

Finally had a chance to catch up with the July blocks and the August blocks for this Craftsy class; need to print out the instructions for the Sept blocks and Oct blocks and will try to get them done before the end of the school holidays.
