A Great Weekend

thanks to Chooky for inviting us to join her for the Chook Shed's  4th Birthday Party...

Had the best time sewing "Windy Farm" from Toni's book "Happy Quilts". As it was a long weekend in the West I got lots done..


I have blanket stitched all the farm animals and little people .Just have row five to go and then sew all the blocks into rows and join them. Toni did a beautiful Pinwheel border but not sure if I will as I can never get the centre of the blocks right... I will be doing all the embellishing WHEN it is sandwiched while I quilting it......



Will check out what others have been doing over the next few days HERE..


My thoughts are with all the folk who are battling the storms over East. Sew sad to see the loss of life and property..  Lots of Hugs.....
