What have I been up to

As my computer has been away in the repair shop I have managed to get an incredible amount of sewing done.  It just goes to show how much time I spend blog hopping and the like.

On the hand sewing note I have completed the main component of block 5 on the Girls day out quilt-a-long.  There was quite a bit of stitchery on this one with the wisteria being all French knots, as well as a lot of work on the lace curtains and fence posts.

 IMG_0258 I also have made the top and back of two cushions from Some Kind of Wonderful with the patterns kindly sent to me by a friend after commenting on it on her blog.  I just need to construct the cushion, but first I have to shop for some giant ric rac.  One is for me, and the other will be for mum as its almost her birthday and I am planning a parcel of hand made goodies for her.


I have also (almost) completed a finish, being my Henrietta’s Whiskers quilt.  All the piecing and quilting is done, I just need to stitch on the binding.
