Week-end Sewing.

Sorry I am late in showing what I got up to on the week-end. The time went very quickly and I didn't get as much done as I had hoped.
Below are some of the things I worked on.


I managed to prepare the above blocks for my Gossip in the Garden quilt. The first block only needed a few more pieces added but the other two were from scratch. Amazing how long it takes to trace, choose the fabrics and cut out all those little pieces. All ready for blanket stitching now.
I spent some time planning and cutting out the blocks for my GS's Ninja quilt.

Still in the planning stage but a lot of the cutting done, it will come together nicely now I think.
    
On Sunday afternoon I decided to have a break from the cutting and planning in my sewing room and work on some stitchery. The angel in Cosmo red and the gifts in a Cottage Garden thread called Mistletoe in red/green. They will become tree ornaments.
Thank you Chooky for having me at the Chookshed's 2nd birthday I really enjoyed sewing along with everyone.
I did have a few hours break on Saturday afternoon as Chris and I went over to help celebrate my great nephew's 1st birthday. He is walking now and looked  so cute in his little outfit.

 Poppy are you sure this is my Birthday Cake? 
 Well that's it for me tonight. Till next time...........Happy Stitching.
