Sewing.......

Last Sat was another sewing day with friends.........
Nundle last year...............Sue worked on this quilt...........just attached the binding...now to sew it down............
Janice also got some binding on a quilt............. sorry I missed getting a photo of her quilt..........
I've got all my blocks done and started joining rows............just getting a little piece of yellow to make another yellow block for the top left corner...........
Take two on my tincy pincushion.........and I succeeded.........next to the reject of last week......much better to iron as you go with this tincy sucker and also to cut the pieces a little wider then the instructions said.......
When I looked at the second picture with this pattern it is a cushion in a dolls house.......2 1/4" finished
Janice even had a go.......we just need to stuff and stitch opening closed........
Its been a busy time with visitors.....kids friends staying too........
now another mountain of sheets and towels to wash.........at least its been windy and I have water..........
I thought it was all going pear shaped Friday afternoon when I spent a few hours at the hospital with Boy Wonder and an eye injury but luck was on his side....... and things were not as bad as they could have been.........
Hope you have enjoyed a great weekend..........
Catch you later.....

  2. I think working on that tiny pincushion would have driven me batty. But it sure does finish up beautifully. You did a fantastic job. Love the quilt. It looks like you're getting close to finishing it. --Andrea

  3. Your quilt is looking good. The new mini log cabin pincushion is a winner, we are all allowed a practise block anytime we start something new :) Glad your boys eye is OK. Good luck with the washing, it is so cold here nothing drying outside particularly well.

  4. Sewing weekends with friends are just the best times aren't they? Lovely quilts, and even the tiny. Washing, washing here too, but all drying inside by the heater.

  9. It was such a fun day stitching together. I love the way your quilt is turning out. Those pincushions sure were fiddly suckers. I'd better get mine stuffed. Wonder Boy sure was lucky. Looking fine now.
