It looks like the issues with Blogger are not improving. Not only are they not sending emails of people's comments on my blog but now I cannot seem to leave comments on other people's blogs. I feel like I have been isolated form my lovely blogger friends. Hopefully the problems shall be sorted out soon. Meanwhile, back here in Crafty land I have actually completed 2 projects. Yey! Don't fall off your chairs. Munchkin's quilt was put on hold as I didn't have enough fabric for the binding. I put it away for a couple of days and when I was rummaging around in my stash for another project  I found enough fabric which would suit the binding. This is the end result. ( the backdrop isn't really appealing but I needed somewhere to hang it). It is a rather unique quilt as it is totally machine pieced and machine quilted by yours truly. A rarity indeed.

I have had some lovely Basic Grey charm squares sitting in my stash for a while so I decided to make a table runner. Once again, I tried machine piecing and machine quilting but it wasn't without a little drama. First the needle dropped out as I was sewing and then when I put it back it broke in half! I found the pointy end but still haven't found the rest of the needle. I thought it may be stuck up in the part where you insert the needle but I couldn't see so I just put the new needle in anyway. It seems to be working so who knows where that bit of needle is. Machines and I never seem to have a fantastic relationship.  Matching coasters are currently under construction using remnants of the cut charm squares.
And...... another angel . This is Harriet the Homebody. Only 3 left to do now.
Unfortunately I haven't had much energy to stitch the last couple of days but hopefully I will be full of energy after an iron infusion this week and maybe some sleep.
Thankyou so much for visiting. If you are able to leave a comment I shall check my blog periodically and email each of you.
Angel Blessings.
