Catch up ...

Hello!

I hope everyone is doing well 😍😍

I have spent the past few weeks designing and sewing a coat for the school! The year 7's are performing Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. It must admit it was alotof work but a whole heap if fun with amazing satisfaction when it was finished!! Needless to say that the teachers and children love it!! I cannot show photos yet! I will once the play is over.

I have also sewn a baby quilt. Mums friends first grandchild is due this week! Once the quilt has been passed on I can post photos.

The other evening we went to our schools summer fete! Great evening!

Getting ready to bounce

Lovely Ice-Cream
Last week it was Caras 7th birthday! She had a great day!




Great fun had by us all over the past few weeks! We only have 2 full school weeks left before the schools finish for the holidays!! Wow! This school year has flown by!

Have fun! Stay safe!
Hugs Heather

Quilting the Quilt with love!

Good Evening all,

I have been busy sewing away on a quilt for Katie!  She chose the fabric and design.  I just did the easy bit of sewing it together haha!  All I have left to do is to sew the edging on now.  It is looking fantastic 😁

2 Log Cabin Blocks

All 8 blocks to complete the front

The back of the quilt
I am totally delighted with the back.  I was going to use one solid piece of fabric but Katie decided to give me more of a challenge!!  I must say it is looking brilliant! 

No other news really!  Just a quick post tonight!  Poorly kiddies and cat plus lack of sleeps makes me boring hahaha!

Chat soon
Love and hugs
Heather

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! 

Bag for a gift &

Cara's quilt is finished and she is totally delighted with it 😍
I must admit it turned out quite well for my first try at a single bed sized quilt 😃😀

Rainbow Quilt

Happy Girl

Lovely colours! 

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
