Not Happy 😑

I really can’t believe that my internet has dropped out AGAIN…… hot spotting again.

During the week I managed to make two small quilts to add to the others Helen is taking to Perth Children’s Hospital on Sunday.

They use this size to put on top of the humi cribs so I think I’ll make a few more.

In the evenings I’ve been hand sewing the hexies together and making the next set of EPPs for La Passacaglia.

Must away now and do some tidying in the Cave.

Happy stitching 🧡 

Hugs. Maria ❤️

FnwFs for December..

WOW ! December already and it was time to join Cheryll for FnwFs for the last time this year… I always enjoy these evenings as I seem to get organised and get something done. 
So a huge thank you Cheryll for keeping us on track all year even when you’re away on your trips.

Last night I sewed on a scrappy binding on my RSC “I Spy “ blocks and completed the quilt ready to be taken to Perth Children’s Hospital next week.

Then later in the evening I sat and stitched some hexies together from my long term project 

 Must away now and visit others to see what they have done HERE before I go to croquet.

Wishing all the FnwFs a Happy Safe Christmas πŸŽ„ 

Happy Stitching 🧡,

Hugs Maria πŸ’–

I’ve got no internet πŸ›œ so will do a post on my iPad by hot spotting from my phone…. 

Been doing some more on La Passacaglia and now I’m trying to decide on fabrics for the row after the yellow? 
Which green????
The row after the green will be a star with the pink one in the centre and green lattice as the diamond. ♦️ 

I really need to get back to quilting the RSC “ I Spy “ ready to be donated to the Children’s Hospital. 
But as you can see I got side tracked again. Was looking for some red ticking (for another project. πŸ€”) I came across this very long time UFO.A box of hexies. So now I’m playing with them. 

Do we all work on multiple projects at once??

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

I'm back.....I've had no internet since Oct 26th. Finally, today a technician came and sorted out the problem and I'm back online....

So now I can show you what I've been up to . 

Sewing Christmas Pillowcases for " Kids in Oncology "  


Aussie Hero Blocks for November..

put together another table runner from left over Chain Link blocks.

In the evenings I enjoy sitting and doing some hand sewing on La Passacaglia.

Decided to put all my blocks on the design board and was surprised how much it's growing. 

Poor Lacy was scratching so much I made her little socks till the injection she had stopped the itching.... 

Must away now and make a cuppa so I can catch up on some blog reading.

Happy Stitching .

Hugs  Maria  ❤️

week has flown by and I've been busy sorting projects to take to retreat next week.

but I did sit and do some hand sewing in the evenings and got another La Passacaglia block done.

Today I FINALLY threaded the overlocker to finish off these four boys ones . Now to cut out some for girls...

Must away now and have a cuppa.
