Last night was our Friday Night get-together with our ‘virtual’ friends over at Cheryll’s place and I must admit, I started pretty early. My plan this week was to finish the Christmas Blessings quilt so I could post it away and I was doing well, until I had to practice some ‘reverse stitching’ due to some hasty and somewhat cocky progress. (happens to all of us, doesn’t it?)
So Friday morning was sandwiching, pinning and quilting and I got to sewing the binding on just after lunch.
It’s always so satisfying sewing that last bit of binding down, don’t you think? Always gives me a real sense of achievement (now why then, can’t I apply this ‘knowledge’ to my huge long list of UFOs I wonder?)
This was also my January challenge on my list for the APQ 2015 UFO Challenge I mentioned in this post so I can tick this one off …. even if it was a week overdue, AND add it to my OPAM list for Jan/Feb! Double whammy!
It is now in the safe hands of Australia Post, winging its way to Natalie at The Birdhouse to live its life out as a shop sample. I’ve had a few people interested in purchasing the pattern. I suggest you Google ‘Christmas Blessings by Natalie Bird’, and you will get a few stores who stock them, then you can choose where you’d like to purchase it from. The ones I have seen are all really reputable and wonderful to purchase from (and yes, I have had experience with them all – shhhhh, don’t tell hubby!)
I then went on to stitching up some more of this gorgeous design of Jenny’s for her Stitchery Club Swap.
A little more to go and then I can make it into something I hope someone will love!
So that’s what I got up to…..come with me and visit all my friends and see what they got up to last night. Thanks Cheryll….it’s always terrific fun spending Friday nights with you. *mwah*
Have a wonderful weekend. Big sugary hugs xox :o)
