From one thing to another ......

With this week being one that has had my mind scattered and all over the place, so has my creativity.

I have been doing little bits on what seems like a lot of things.

I found myself at my cutting table and in total I think I have managed to cut 13, yes 13 blocks for my Farmer's Wife quilt. I don't even want to think about how many small triangles are in those 13 blocks!  I have not taken them to the sewing machine as I feel that they need more of my attention and concentration than I can give them at the moment.

I have also done a little bit of stitching on a Christmas project, hopefully more on that soon.
I am also nearing the completion line on block 2/3 of my Vignette Mystery Quilt.

I have had Journal Covers on my to do list for quite some time and this week it seemed like the thing to do.
I love the way they look with Ruby.  Just need to do one for me in my new favourite - HOMETOWN :o)

I used the tutorial over here at BLOOM and have started making some to put away for Xmas and birthday presents.  My favourite so far it this one for my nephew. I can't wait to see his little drawings inside. Miss Lily is getting one for her notebook also and Miss K has one to!

Today my postie was very kind with delivering a few parcels and thus adding to my ever growing stash :o)

My fabrics also arrived today for the Christmas Charm Square Swap.

These have now been cut and are on there way over to the US for the swap.
