Catching Up

Hi everyone,
Sorry for the even longer than usual gap between posts. I have a very painful arm/shoulder which has caused me a lot of grief and has slowed down production.
I'll try to keep it short but here a few things that were made a while ago but not yet seen on my blog.

This bag is from Anni Down's Some Kind of Wonderful book.

The linen is a 50/50 cotton/linen from Ikea and I used Carries Thread in the colour Black Cherry.

It is lined with the Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 fabric that I also used on this zippered pouch.

This pincushion is from a Leanne Beasley pattern

a bit of fussy cutting to make the back look good

I have had this Fig Tree Quilts Sugar Pumpkin as UFO for a couple of years now. I finished it in time for October but sadly I did not post to the blog in October so missed showing it off during pumpkin season.

I had fun making this cute little purse from Lynette Anderson's book Quilting Cats
and Dogs

I made a journal cover from this tutorial using linen and a few scraps of Rounneries fabric

A little quilt from a pattern by Australian designer Val Laird

and finally a picture of some lovely fabrics that I won in a giveaway on Madame Samm's Sew We Quilt blog

They are very bright and colourful so I'm looking forwrd to making something special with them.

I don't have any cross stitch finishes that I can show this time. Hopefully there will be a couple of ornaments in my next post.
I hope you are all enjoying your festive stitching/sewing/crafting.
As always thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.
