The week that was !

Last weekend I put together some orphan blocks I brought back from Perth that were my DDs and made a "Quilt of Love"

Monday worked on finishing some Shields for "Days for Girls"  .... 


completed 30 ready to deliver for the GTG on Tuesday...

After the GTG I decided to do some work on The Block as it was a beautiful sunny day...
Even this little fella took advantage of the day , basking in the Sun for ages....

Then Wednesday we had lots of much needed rain, sew I spent time in the Cave and made this little Iron Caddy... 

when opened it is an ironing mat...
It will be handy for going on retreat.

Today was spent at Mingenew Expo for our Patchwork Club to sell raffle tickets and show folk some of our work and also advertising our Quilt Hanging which will be held in October...

Tomorrow I'll be joining Wendy for FNSI ... Wendy is having trouble with her internet but she hopes we will still join her an evening of crafting.....

Must away now and make a cuppa.

Happy Stitching,

Hugs  Maria 😊

  6. Now I've caught up - so much productivity happening at your place.

  7. Sounds like a very nice week! The ironing caddy is a great idea and the little quilt is pretty. xx

  8. You DID have a busy week. It's always nice to get outside and do a few projects. Your donation pads will be appreciated greatly. The orphan blocks made a really sweet finish too.

    I'm pretty sure you must be busy getting ready for the hanging. It is exciting times and I know there will be beautiful pieces shown.

    The iron caddy is fabulous. Is that a pattern or did you cleverly create it on your own? I love it.

  9. You had a productive week. That iron caddy looks very clever and will be useful when you "go out" to quilt.

  10. Busy, productive week! I love that iron caddy, Maria. It would make a great gift! I’ll have to consider it as I’m running out of gift ideas for my quilting partners in crime!

  11. You have been busy. The iron caddy is so clever! I like that it can turn into an ironing mat as well! x
