A rush to the finish line......

Oh boy, I am a slack blogger, so long between posts. There is a reason and all will be revealed soon, but for now I have been sewing helter skelter to finish 2 projects by the end of the month.....just made it!!!!.....whew!!!!

Firstly a lovely bag by our favourite Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse. This one is being made by stitchers far and wide across the globe as part of the Stitch-a-long.


 It was originally designed with a stitchery in the centre, but i preferred the applique off the quilt in the same book.....Red Home is the book's name.
The back....I love this soft delicate pattern on the fabric. French General fabrics.....yummy.....

And the next thing I needed to meet the deadline for, a pile of 9 patch blocks for Trish's nine patch swap.......all in reproduction fabrics, which I cannot buy locally so our dear friend Kerry from Nundle's Cottage on the Hill came to the rescue.....she is such a sweetie and actually cut these at about after 10 at night for me .....thankyou and big hugs Kerry. I love the green, it will really brighten up the stack when we get the mix back........


....so I am in a state of relief now.....off to our local craft day today.......very wet here...........I hope you all get a chance to do a little on your craft today.......
