The week that Was.........

Last Saturday one of our bobbing ladies had a birthday and we went to the "Green Beanie"  ( a vintage caravan done up as a coffee van ) after our dip for a cuppa and cake...


Helen was the birthday girl, lady centre in blue with no hat...
and Merle baked the cake , front left , showing lots of leg....

I worked all week on "Sunday Stitchers" No 10 challenge .....


  Lots of quilting and the grey background was weird stretchy fabric... 

but I had fun and I was pleased I got the quilt finished even though I did this..


Used a metal skewer as a tool and it slipped and went through the top of my thumb.....thankfully it looks worse than it was and has healed quickly and I got no blood on the quilt,

Thank you ladies for letting me join in your UFO challenge as it's kept me motivated . Hope I can keep it up !!!!

Last Sunday a new No was drawn for "Sunday Stitchers".....   No 8 

On list list it's my " Pinata" Blocks......

Wonder how many I can get done ???????

Over the Christmas/ New Year break I took home some homework for " Days For Girls " 

and have managed to work on these shields.....

Hopefully I can complete them before our first meeting on first Tuesday in Feb.......

Must away as the washing machine is calling......

Happy Stitching 
Hugz Maria  😄
