I both love and loathe the weekends, love them because I am free from going to work, and loathe them because they are so very short and often leave me feeling less than satisfied with what I can achieve in just two days.
By the time I have caught up on a little sleep, a load or two of washing, some much needed house cleaning, preparing meals and sometimes shopping for necessities, there is precious little time left for much else.
This weekend whizzed past in a blur and before I could blink it’s Sunday night.
My LPC (Local Patchwork Club) met this week and I captured their show and tell to share with you.
1.Gail’s granddaughters dress 2. Kathryn’s mobile phone case 3. Gail’s new ‘designer’ spectacles 4. Sue’s appliqued cup cake 7. Gail’s apron. 8. Another of Sue’s appliqued cup cakes. 9. Kathryn’s pile of drawstring bags.
1. Jeanette’s Christmas table topper 2. Margaret’s polar fleece no-sew rug 3. Joy’s fabric flower 4. Debbie’s applique basket block 5. Another of Margaret’s rugs 6. Ann’s new spectacles 7. Close-up of Jeanette’s embroidery 8. Goodies box donation suggestion 9. Another of Jeanette’s embroidery blocks 10. The whole table runner. 11. Cindy’s stunning row x row quilt.
With a little gentle prodding all but one had show and tell. The new glasses were a good natured way of having something to show. Ann is on notice, she must produce something for next meeting or face some very serious consequences…..not sure what they are but I’m sure they will be dire!
My Show and Tell
I did manage to complete two small quilts this week. The first finish was a little 9 patch embroidery block quilt. My friend Sharon shared her pattern with me. I found the perfect accompanying fabric at my LPS (Local Patchwork Shop)
This slightly bigger quilt is for my friend Frell’s grandson Corben. I must make the label before I give it away later this week.
A few other little bit and bobs…….
Card Classes and a decorated baby singlet for Brooklynn
Sit Me Up Donut from a delightful pattern from Paula Storm.
Baby Swaddle wrap from this blog tutorial.
Here I was thinking I had achieved very little, it’s a timely reminder of why I blog….. without the visual display it is easy for me to forget what I’ve done!
Feeling very pleased with myself now…..time for bed.
OK OK here she is……. trying to crawl no less! Her arms go nowhere, just the legs!
Leah says she is almost sitting up, or perhaps it’s balancing in a sitting position for a few moments?
Thanks for visiting!
