Little Finishers

As time passes by you don't think of yourself getting older....until one of your oldest freinds daughter is having a baby!!!!
Wow stop the world I would like to get off for 5mins.

After finding out the news my crafty mind kicked into planning a little quilt.
These guys live up in Kununurra in the north of Western Australia, so not a great need for a quilt.
So a floor rug was more my thinking. 
Quilt finished size 45'x45'. It was meant to be a dissapearing 9patch but I got lost along the way!
Used fabric brought on the last Bloggers get together!
Here is the quilt what do you think?

Backing

Also wanted to show you the backing of the Pink Pinwheel Jellyroll quilt. It has stopped raining long enough to hang it out.

Have a great day Hugz Sandra

Furry Helper

Well this weekend has been a very wet affair!
Perfect time to spend in the craft room finishing off things.
With Squid1 was out on a babysitting duties, while away her cat was screaching the house for her.
As I was sewing he would come & complain that he couldn't find her.
After a while he gave up & set up camp on my project, pink pinwheel jelly roll quilt I was binding.
Check him out!! Ready for use according to Tove!!
Quilt all finished.

FNSI May

Wow it is May already!
Hope you all had a good evening sewing.
I had a small job to complete for HD costume which he needed for a show the next day.

Add hand made braid to his Herring bone wool Viking Tunic.
All the right trims make it really stand out.

Happy sewing all.

May FnwFs

Yesterday I went for a long bike ride (50km) so only a little sewing got done before I started to fade.
Such a beautiful day.

Quilted the Jelly Roll Challenge.

Also cleaned out some of my stash last night & found my Scandinavian Christmas! UFO form 2011!
Have set it up so I can stitch while watching TV.

Hope you had fun sewing along on FnwFs thanks.
Hugs Sandra

FNSI April

Thanks to Wendy and all the ladies sewing around the world.
Hope you had a great evening.

As it was school holidays the Squids & I headed to Dongara to spend some time with Mum (Life on the Block Blog fame).

A lot of fun has been had! With swimming & walking on the beach, coffee & milkshakes at the seaside cafe, lovely dinners with movies for kids and sewing for Mum & I in the evenings.

It has been a very successful visit for me with two backings made, two quilts pinned, one binding made and tonight I used Mums design wall to organise the X & + quilt. Sorted.



Now I can head home tomorrow with a lot of work to get done in my bags.
Thanks Mum for a lovely holiday & FNSI.
Love Sandra

Fabric Fun

Well a lot has been achieved over the last couple of weeks since my last post.
Sorry to the Fridays ladies for not posting earlier. Did think that FnWF was this week Opps.

Boarders finished on the A4AQ! Tick
Awaiting a trip to visit Mum's in the school holidays to pick up a backing fabric to complete the pinning and quilting.

Jelly roll challange completed. Set by Mum for her patch group. Tick
Will pin this when a friend is pops over to pin her UFO this Friday.

Now onto my latest project.....a little something for me.
It is Called X & + by Birgitte Heitland.
I even brought the recommend fabric "Comma" by Moda many moons ago.
Loads of cutting with this one. Cut 288x2 1/2" blocks!!!
Now the fun part of lying out the colours for each block. Wish I had a design wall for this bit.

First block finished. ��

Busy, busy, busy, fun, fun, fun.

FNWFS March 2015

Thanks to all the lovely ladies that I have joined to FNWFS tonight.
Hope you enjoyed a crafty evening.

Last night I worked on a boarder for the latest UFO quilt that I am attempting to finish.
This quilt just needs a little more width in the side boarders so it sits nicely on the bed.

So I set out to make a braided boarder!
I have not done one of these before, so off to YouTube I head and find myself a tut. 
The tut I found used triangles to make up the braid, which meant that I could use my new ruler which I purchased on a Bloggers get together recently.
The braid is coming along!

Hope you all had a good Friday Night
Hugs Sandra
