The Week that Was...

Well another busy week has flown by with a quick trip to the Big Smoke and of course DD and I managed to go out for a coffee and visit one fabric store...














I needed some sewing machine needles and these yummy strippy fabrics fell into my bag...



Yesterday I attended the " Autumn Roundup"  . It's an amazing weekend of all sorts of different workshops and some nice stalls...


I bought a nice Lynette Anderson pattern while there that I hope to stitch before next Easter to pop into my mini frame..









                   














My friend and I sat and sewed "Blocks for the Homeless" as we both decided we didn't need to start a new project....



                    Trimming blocks . A nice pile ready to sew together for Shaggy Quilts.


Today I thought it was time to get back to Bonnie Hunter's 2017/18 Mystery , On Ringo Lake.....


                         I still have many more blocks to sew before the quilt is complete....


Happy Stitching

Hugz  Maria XX

  4. You might have lots of blocks yet to sew for the Ringo Lake project--but it looks like you have a nice start and setup--keep it going!!
    and it is always nice and fun to spend time with family and friends and those are really neat looking strip fabrics--can't wait to see what you do with those!!

    PS and I am about 3 hours north of Ft Lauderdale where Joy changed planes and my dock is on a river--just a mile in from the Ocean!

  5. Love the stripe fabric. I enjoy seeing everyone's versions of Bonnie Hunter's mysteries. All those blocks. Assembly line sewing makes sewing so much faster and easier.

  11. Ringo Lake is certainly a lot of sewing Maria, but I'm sure you'll finish it... am I right in thinking you're not entirely in love with it? Hang in there.
    Love new Lynette pattern, enjoy xx

  12. It's so strange how fabric jumps into our bags ..... shaggy quilts are so lovely - great idea.... so many repeats for your Ringo Lake....

  13. Fancy you finding some pretty stripes and a Lynette Anderson pattern. I'm sure you will have fun with them. You certainly look organised with your On Ringo Lake stitching. Sometimes it makes all the difference.
