BlooMerS ParTy

Had a lovely time this afternoon sewing my blocks for the BlooMerS ParTy over at Cheryll's Place ....


Made Blocks 17 and 18.....Only two more and then sew the blocks together....Thanks Cheryll for having our linky party each fortnight.. Great to see what others have sewn too...

There is also some other BlooMs at my place..... My nasty cactus "Horrible" has been producing a lovely display over the past few days.








































Sadly the flowers only last a few days and now he just has prickly spikes......

Must away and get the washing in .......

                                                        Happy Stitching

Some finishes....

At the Sunday Stitchers GTG last month No 5 was the UFO challenge No and this was mine ......





A lovely Armchair Caddy I started a few years ago when Helen Stubbings  from Hugs and Kisses come over to Geraldton to do a workshop with us and this was our gift. 

I had done most of the stitching and sew I worked on finishing the rest and putting the Caddy together.....




I'm happy to have completed it before this Sunday when the girls met again and will pick another Challenge No... I'm looking forward to seeing what it will be ?????




Some time ago I saw a fabric chalk roll Helen made and decided that they would make great gifts for little ones .. I ordered the special chalk fabric which arrived this week and with a little help from Helen  made one 








and then I was on a roll and made three more .....


They are now tucked away for special little ones later in the year ..






Must away and make a nice warm Milo before going to bed...

Happy Stitching

BlooMerS PaRty ....

A very quick post for the  BlooMerS PaRty  organised by the lovely Cheryll  . Thanks heaps for keeping us on track......

I managed to get two blocks completed yesterday ...



Our Patchwork group have been invited by the Geraldton group to join them for their " Mother's Day Luncheon....  Opps have run out of time,  must go finish post later.....

Home again after a wonderful time sharing a delicious lunch and lots of lovely show and tell by both groups. Others took photos but I was busy chatting . I was lucky to win a prize of a lovely potted chrysanthemum.....  

  

will replant into a better pot and have pretty display for " Mother's Day " next week...

Must away and see what I can find for dinner ???

FnwFs for May

Where oh where has this year gone  ????  As it's the first Friday of the month again it's time to join the lovely Cheryll and friends for FnwFs... Thanks Cheryll for putting up our link to sew even though you've just returned from a fabulous busy holiday..

Last week I bought a panel of four little Bears and I decided it would be nice to make something nice and quick, Sew I cut out two of the Bears for a couple of " Quilts of Love "

Before picking Hubby up from his RSL I added a border on each and then sandwiched them and popped them next to my machine....

On my return I picked up the little quilt and started quilting ... After doing the centre I realised it was a bit THICK..... Can you guess what I did ????


  Yep !  I'd sewn the two quilts together ....












I can't believe I didn't hit any pins on the quilt underneath and break a needle !












After an hour of reverse sewing I got back to completing  both quilts just after midnight..                                      









                     After the little set back I am happy with the two little quilts..... 


Must away now and make a few BlooMs to link up for the BlooM ParTy 

Happy stitching.

OPAM for April

A busy month so I'm pleased to link up with the lovely KRIS who's keeping us on track with OPAM each month and post my finishes.....

I attended a two day workshop this month to make a cute  6"  Bear ..... I was surprised that on the first day we only got his head made.













 Homework Sat night was to stitch the arms , legs , body and ears together sew on Sunday we worked on finishing our bear...
















I nicknamed him  " Scruffy " but after spending time making him a waistcoat and bandana I've called him


 "  Edmund "


My finish for " Sunday Stitchers" Challenge No 3   " Flying Colours "  designed by Sue Belleli.



I picked up my quilt  " Simplify " from the longarm quilters this week and I'm happy with the little Elephants and Flowers quilted all over...




 





found a great backing ...............









and as usual I've been busy sewing Sheilds  for " Days for Girls "













 and you can see my " Bunny Garden " Hanging
HERE...



Thank you KRIS for keeping me focused to get all these projects finished this month........





Must away and put on the kettle for a cuppa....

Happy Stitching.
