ANGELS PART 1
It has taken a while to get to this point so I was delighted to complete the first pieced section of my Angel quilt yesterday. I was a little worried about sorting placement of all the squares but I think it looks okay. Hmmmm, it appears that 2 polar bears are photo bombing.😀
My hexie garden has continued to bloom and grow.
The sun is shining but the winter chill is getting into my hands and legs so my stitching has slowed today. I hope you are enjoying your weekend, keeping warm and stitching. ( if you are in the UK I believe you are in for a heatwave, so keep cool. )

GROWING HEXIE GARDEN
On my last post I was finishing my 3rd hexie flower. Now there are 7.
A few minutes ago I stitched a label to my Crazy Cats quilt.
Yey! My quilt is officially done after having it quilted back in 2016. One cannot rush these things hehehe.
I have been cutting more squares for my angel quilt but still have about 100 more to do so maybe, just maybe, I can start piecing the quilt very soon.
Have a lovely weekend and I thank you for visiting.

Making progress brings me joy and urges me to keep stitching until a project is completed. Yesterday I finished the last 2 angel blocks.
The sashings are made with 2 and a half inch squares and I still have about another 150 to cut,
I am also making progress with my EPP table runner. 2 and a half flowers are done.
My crochet is growing.

THE UPSIDE OF ICKY WEATHER
It is only officially 2 days in to winter and I am over it already. Wet, cold, windy gloomy days are not exactly uplifting but they are perfect days for a bit of crochet or stitching while watching a movie , listening to a podcast, or simply binge watching a TV series . I have been determined to complete projects and to finish everything I start instead of putting it away to finish off later. In my experience " later" usually ends up years later or completely forgotten! I vow that there shall be no more surprise unfinished discoveries when sorting through my sewing room. So, this weekend I put the binding on my Crazy Cats quilt which was finished and quilted back in 2016. Just a sleeve and label required now.
My 2nd little quilt has now been bound as well. Again, a sleeve and label shall see it completed. I have placed a peg next to it so you can see the size of this quilt.
I have enjoyed the calming rythm of crocheting most evenings .
Keep snug and warm.
