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 ;)
