I think I'm addicted ... More finishes!!

Good Evening everyone :D

Cara's topic at school at the moment is Houses and Homes, so I have made up a quilt block with a house on!  I shall make it into a hanger for her so she can take it into school on Monday!  

House Quilt Square 

This is a log cabin Quilt block!  I am being 'bossed' about by Katie as she now want a quilt made.  I just so happened to be watching a Melanie Ham video on You Tube when she came into my room! So of course she wants a Log Cabin Quilt.  This block was my practise!

This is a bag that I made as a belated present for Katie's friend!!  Katie made her some pompoms too!

SEW ... I have cut out pieces for my next quilting project.  This one is a little more involved than sewing stripes haha!! I will do this in between other projects.  I also want to get back to cross stitching as I've many projects unfinished!  

All ready to sew

Layout of the main blocks
For a bit of fun ...  the kiddies bus driver playfully skitted me that sewing is a woman's job ... I sewed him a tool belt so he can now do man jobs!!  hahaha!!  I even made him model it 😁

I didn't have fabric with buses on, so trains it was ... well they have wheels and move!!  Not much of a difference really lol

Rainbow Quilt nearly finished!

Morning to you all!

The past few weeks I have been working on a lovely Rainbow Quilt for Cara! 

Rainbow Jelly Roll

Nearly got all the stripes on

Binding (edging) ready to sew on

All sewn on 
Now all I need to do it to hand stitch the binding to the back!!  That will take quite a few hours I think!!  I was working away at it last night and only got a very small part of it sewn.  The quilt will fit her single bed!!  So its quite a big project for me!  

Katie brought her homework book home the other day and I just love the No10!!

The girl knows me well!!

I have started off a sewing club at school!  The kiddies are delighted!!  We are making small decorative cushions 😍

Other than normal everyday things and my sewing that's all I have done the past few weeks!! 

Have fun, happy crafting
Love and hugs me
