Little bit of this and a little bit of that :)

I finished these two last night.

I am not going to say how many days until Christmas because I am in denial.
Nothing to do with Christmas though, more to do with the fact that my 
gorgeous baby girl will be starting school shortly after!

These pretties arrived yesterday.

I was going to make a Beach Bag for me but someone (and she knows who she is) has told me NO!
Maybe I could make it for Keegan :)
I wonder if that would be OK?

I've also wasted too many hours over at the Fat Quarter Shop auditioning fabrics for this block / Quilt
one of which was "High Street" and now I've seen it in person I just know I will be auditioning fabrics more seriously :o)

The pattern covers three different sizes.
If you are interested in taking a look they are HERE and there is also a link to get the pattern.

I have also made headway into this ...

The pattern is "A Few of my Favourite Things Sewing Roll" by Leanne Beasley.

It is also my turn again next month to be leader for the "Cherish Circle" of Do Good Stitches.

I have selected my Block for the ladies to make.

It's "Feather Bed Quilt" by Anna Maria Horner.
I have decided to go with an off white / cream background which will me mailed out
to them next week and leave the colour of the feathers up to the individuals.
I cant wait to see what they come up with.
The free Pattern is HERE if your interested in taking a look.

So that pretty much explains me at the moment .... all over the place! 
Time to knuckle down and finish something.  :o)
have a great day,
hugs Sharon


  1. ohh keep exploring and auditioning lol, finishes happen in their own good time! Love Leanne sewing roll, cant wait to see that one finished thou!

  2. Sharon, what fun projects on this post. :D That block sure is fantastic. I'll be hopping over to check out the link you shared. I really love those feathers - good choice!

  3. oh I love this Winters Lane Fabric. A couple of weeks ago I ordered some charm packs to make some Xmas gifts. Its so pretty but this quilt is just beautiful. Did you choose the same fabric? Or will you use High Street? Well done on your beautiful and amazingly quick stitching of your sewing roll.

  4. love the Xmas decorations and the sewing roll is very pretty

  5. Great finish of christmas decorations. Lovely block roll. Can't wait to see it finished.

  6. more awesome projects for you to play with.. those are cute little decorations ...

  7. I love that quilt pattern Sharon, will have to go over to craftsy and check it out. Love your High St fabrics too. Gorgeous christmas decorations. Hugs......

  8. Hope your health is good and we will see you at Mill Rosie. Beautiful stitching as always

  9. The Aspen Frost block is fabulous.... and I love the embroidery too - you always have such fantastic projects on the go!

  10. Love the Christmas ornies and that new fabric is lovely. I am probably up to the same stage as yourself with Leanne's sewing roll. Must get it out and finish it!

  11. Thanks so much for featuring our "Aspen Glow" quilt pattern! I can't wait to see which line you decide to use and get a glimpse of your beautiful version! I hope you'll share pictures with our Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/corasquilts/

    Happy sewing!

  12. OMG you and I are like quilting twins (only you're the twin that got all the talent!) I made the Anna Maria Horner feather bed quilt (you can see my version here: http://gnomeangel.com/category/arts-craft/quilting/feathers/) was a very weird experience... I can't wait to see how yours turns out! :)
