Christmas Sewing

I started cutting this quilt out for D on the evening of the 23rd and finished it this afternoon. It's 62 inches x 62.  It got harder work after I split my index finger open right on the tip.  If that hadn't happened I think it would have been finished a day ago.  It needs ironing but the iron is buried in a sea of brick dust  due to renovations along with everything else in the kitchen, utility and dining room......

Christmas Table Runner

My 4 Day Quilt

I cut this quilt out late on Saturday night and started hand piecing it on Sunday. I made it with left over Chrimbo fabric I had and a Winter Flower Fairy backing.  It's 52 inches x 40 cos that was the size of the backing. I used a gorgeous Heirloom cotton wadding as the batting cos I had run out of the cheaper stuff. I finished it today at lunchtime. My finger tips are sore. It is now on the sofa being used as a snuggly. It's the last I am doing before Christmas unless I get chance to cut out D's quilt I am making for him. It's not likely as I need to do other things now - like sort out food and clean etc ;)

My first Cushion

Sarah wanted some cushions for her room and chose this design and two others ( not yet made). I knocked it out in an afternoon. She likes it.

My sewing corner - or was. I have now moved to a quieter spot.

Some of my stash for an Any Butler Belle quilt. The quilt pattern was free from here. The fabric took weeks of getting together as some of it is out of print now. Etsy is a good place to get fabric that is discontinued.
