Any progress is good progress, right? My little quilt has been sandwiched and half hand quilted. The centre measures 8" x 8" and with the border it is "10 x "10".

The quirky cat table topper is coming along. 2 hexies finished, 5 to go.

I was recently reminded about a couple of projects I had put aside so maybe they shall make an appearance in the near future.

I hope you are all keeping well and stitching.

....for quilting! I am so pleased that I have actually completed a project without it being put aside to become a UFO. 

So, that is 3 quilts ready to go to the quilter. Yey! My little handpieced quilt is coming along nicely. 

A girl cannot be satisfied just with one hand pieced project on the go so I selected this quirky cat fabric from my stash and have traced large hexies ready to make a table topper with black borders and maybe a spotty black fabric as the centre hexie.

I am also itching to print out Jenny's recent pretty stitcheries that she is kindly offering for free.

(Sorry, but I have to put the link up this way as I can't seem to do it properly from my tablet.)

May your week be filled with much love, joy and stitching.

A couple of productive afternoons saw me stitching borders on my 2 UFOs. Yey! A phone call to my quilter shall be happening soon.

I had the urge to start handpiecing another little quilt. 

As for my hexie table topper, well the top is finished but I discovered that I didn't have any fabric big enough for the backing. Looks like a trip to the patchwork shop if I get a chance. Life has just got in the way again and I shall be busy with my  grandsons. So, I am unsure how much stitching will get done but other things are more important.

Slowly, bit by bit, I am achieving something . I figured out how to handstitch mitred corners on my hexie table topper. Mitres are all done and only 2 corners need the hexies needleturned to finish the borders completely. ( see pins).

The 4 UFO Christmas stitcheries are done.

1st border strips have been cut and 2 pinned ready to sew onto my Cotton Country quilt.

I may start hand piecing this little quilt tonight.

I hope my lack of posts hasn't detered anyone and I apologise for not visiting your posts as often.

  The past week or so I have cleaned out 4 drawers, 3 cubicles and my drawers of colour coded scaps for applique. A basket full of patterns ...
