Are you ready for a catch up?

In recent weeks I have been busy sewing behind the scenes for a couple of swaps and not getting much done on many of my own projects to blog their slow progress.  Well apart from my "Glacier Star" as the last class is today and I had a self imposed deadline to have it done before today's class.  I am fairly certain that I will not be the only person with a completed quilt top for today's class :)  

So today's post is a bit of a catch up.  Are you ready?

In no specific order ......

Best Friends Forever BOM

I finished Embroidered Hexie no 10 last night.

Hex on the Beach

Rows 4 - 8 are now waiting to be attached to the first 4 rows.

Shop Sample
 (Finished last night to drop off this afternoon)

This one has been sewn for my LQS as a shop sample. It is called "Stitching Makes my Heart Happy" by Gail Pan.  It opens up and stores 24 Cottage Garden Threads.  I am also in the process of making one for me :)

12" Mini Winter Swap
This one went out a few weeks ago.
I hope my recipient liked it.

Tail Feathers

Block 4 has made a reappearance :)

but I cant handle the mess so I started cleaning my space yesterday.
One side of the room now looks all pretty like this

but I am not showing you the other side!   It is still a WIP (hmm..... I seem to have a lot of them at the moment).  Oh and talking about WIP's. These are currently working their way through my machine.

HST for my Vintage Spools Quilt.

As for the swaps I've been working on.  One is a one on one swap with an Instagram friend Roz and the other is the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Swap.  Both ready to go in the mail next week so hopefully I can share them with you soon.

Now, what project to take with me today?

Enjoy your weekend, hugs
