Was Friday night REALLY 3 nights ago???? Gee that goes fast……but I can see we’ve all got lots done…isn’t sewing with friends fantastic motivation?? I absolutely love it!
My plans went on hold a bit as my son started uni today and informed me on Friday night he ‘needed’ a pencil-case right there and then…..so…..what does a stitcher do?
Yep, you got it, I made him one…….
nothing flash, very simple and quite manly, and he loves it….and because I’ve used pellon between the lining and the cover, his mates even think he’s lucky because when lectures are ‘boring’, he can use it as a pillow!!!!!! BOYS!!!!!
I also got to try out Susan’s method of making “Perfect” flying geese, and I must admit…..it’s my new favourite way of making them!!!! A brief overview……
I trimmed them down after this step and added them to the other elements of the block to get this……..
See what I mean about perfect flying geese EVERY time!!!!! If you want to get the full instructions for perfecting your flying geese Susan’s way, go to her blog HERE. This is the 5th block in my Delightful Stars QAL with Michele over at Quilting Gallery. I also took the next step and added the sashing between 4 of the 5 blocks and this is the result……
I’m loving this QAL and it’s helping perfect my points beyond belief…Michele’s instructions are really great…..head on over if you want to join along.
I also managed a bit more stitching on this Smee Designs beauty….
It’s such a fun one……granny’s really rockin’ those fluffy slippers!!!!!!
I’ve got a couple of other things I MUST get done but that’s just going to have to wait……..I know you’re all eagerly anticipating the draw for Friday night’s TWO winners!!
