can't believe I've been sewing......

Well folks don't drop dead with shock...........I've been sewing.........on the machine....
Before we go into the details I have to share one of my favorite pincushions........those were left over scraps and my girl sewed them together and made this tiny pincushion......it's only about 3 inchs long i think......and it holds my forked pins which I also love joining seams......
So I cut this quilt out months ago and it's even been laid out on the design wall ready to sew......the urge to sew just had not been there even though it was ready to go........
I cut into the French Generals and had them laid out on the floor and as I put that quilt top together I used this one as my leader/ender and woohoo I have now got a 1/4 of the quilt top together.....
It's like a good book I can't put it down now so maybe I'll try make a block each day before work...........
too hot after work to go into the Chookshed.....
I was in the shed early this morning and the sun caught this wall hanging.........
"Friends make each day a new beginning filled with wonder and joy"
This is part of the FG quilt that needs a name by the way......
It's finished........BUT I will show the girls on zoom first tomorrow morning........
(let me know if you want to join us)
Tonight we had dessert which is rare........Bread and Butter pudding......
very delicious and will be making another one again soon.......
Stay Safe.......
Catch you later........

  2. Woohoo! Sewing always brightens the day. A few minutes to stitch before work really puts me in a good mood. Of course the bread and butter pudding would pick me up as well!

  4. How exciting that you have been sewing! Love those FG fabrics. The pin cushion is too cute. Bread and Butter pudding sounds wonderful - and now I know what to do with half a loaf of GF bread sitting in the cupboard!

  8. The pincushion is adorable.
    Hooray for leader/ender progress. I love making a quilt while I am making another quilt. :)
    Your French General quilt turned out very well. I was happy to see it--and happy to see all the gals who gathered to Zoom. It was a treat!
    Thanks for your organizational skills and f=efforts to make it happen.
