Haven’t done that much, but here’s some pictures:
A new runner for the dining room table
Made up of blocks from a virtual bee I was in last year - I think they go really well together.
Blocks 8 & 9 of the Bloggers BOM. I do Like them, though I think Month 9 wasn’t written the way I am used to, I was getting a bit annoyed with the instructions, though the block is nice when it is finished. Only one more of these BOM’s and I’ll be up to date with them I think!
A block that will become I don’t know what yet!
Still have a few more to go, so back to the sewing room!

I wanted to show everyone what I have been making on Thursday mornings at our Sewing Group:
I don’t know the final size yet because I haven’t measured it! It’s batiks with a lovely pale green backing – I’ll show you more tomorrow when I can get a model to hold it!
I’m currently trying to catch up on BOM’s, so time is at a premium here!

It is winging it’s way to country New South Wales as I type.
Here is the quilt in its travelling bag, ready to go to the post office. Hard to imagine it fits a queen sized bed, isn’t it?
And here it is on the bed – half square triangles in every setting I could imagine – some amazing designs show up once its finished…..
The label and the backing – if she gets tired of all the colour on the front she can simply turn it over!
I am really pleased about this finish and eager to get on with other things now.

Well the binding and label have been attached to the big quilt, and it is ready to go tomorrow to it’s forever home.
I’m not real happy with the binding, as I did it all by machine, usually I hand sew the binding at the back. I knew I wouldn’t make it if I tried to hand sew this one, so I tried machining it. I need to practice machine binding so I become more at ease with it.
Here it is in it’s bag, all ready to go. Sorry, can’t show anymore but i will tomorrow night once it is on it’s way.

Cutting and joining the binding ready to be pressed:
Tomorrow should see it finished and then it will be on it’s way.
I wonder what is next?

Would you read them or not? I'm not sure if I should keep them, what do you think?
I would really appreciate your views and I will reply as soon as I can.
I know there are some of my friends out there holding their breath with anticipation to find out what it’s all about!
So now, finally all can be revealed - drum roll here please………………….
They are garden ornaments!!!!! See the pretty garden?? Isn’t it just too gorgeous??
And again - second drum roll please……………………
Just make certain that you look at the large view of these pictures, you won’t want to miss the full effect!
The concrete balls have been painted with some type of shiny surface - hopefully noeone can graffiti them.
There's only the little garden around the small balls - the big balls don't get a garden of their own!
The left side doesn't match the right side of the road. Don't get me started!!
So very precious, aren’t they?
