Another finish

For the past few hours I have been busy cutting and sewing. I have wanted some new placemats for ages so decided that was what I was going to DO. Yeh!  Here are the four I have completed. In time to be added to this months OPAM by half an hour.
Oh, they can also go into my stringy challenge.

Retreat by the Sea


Last Friday Sue Mary and I went
to the city for a retreat by the sea.
These are the projects I worked
on for "Friday Night Sew In"
As I did not have computer
access was unable to post them
on time.

It was just wonderful. We were
able to just sit and sew or chat 
with friends while the ladies
 in the kitchen cooked ALL
our delicious meals AND did
the dishes TOO.


Here are some of the tops our busy ladies worked on over the weekend




When I returned today I received some more lovely siggys.
Thank you all.

Some Finishes.

Finally I have something to post again.
I am very pleased to have finished my
"Winter Mini Swap". It was fun to
make. Hope my swap partener likes
it.

What do you think of my little label??

I also made a set of strippy pot holders.

Monday Sewing Day

Today is sewing day at the The Patch and with the help of my friend Linda got my flip flop/thong quilt pinned.Then I settled down to do some quilting before my exercise class. On my return it was time for lunch and then more sewing.
When pulling the thread to the back of the machine silly me put my foot on the pedal and sewed my finger!!
                                                  
OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beatrice came to my aid with a tissue and bandaide. Then back to some sewing.
After tea I went into the sewing room and finished quilting and binding the quilt.Another UFO finished.
P.S. Thank you Teresa for my 12th block. Story on

I'm back.

Had to take my computer in to the doctors and boy did I miss reading all your blogs. I am pleased to be back.

Over the past few days I have received more siggy's. It is fun collecting and sending them all over the world.

I have finished another fun project for the No Stings Attached Challenge. I found it on Moda Cake Shop blog.


Can you guess what it is??

   Ta Dahh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I needed a new cover so what a great way to use up my strips of fabric.
Another finish for both of my challenges. The String Challenge and the  OPAM 2010.
