Did the earth move for you last night?  It is only a year since we last had a couple of earth tremors but they weren't as high on the scale as this one. I was sitting stitching when this one happened.  A shake up to get things done and I did!
Last night I finished putting the binding on my mother's bedrunner and also finished the last Henrietta Whiskers applique block.  I am looking forward to piecing all the Henrietta Whiskers blocks together ready for the borders and more appliques around those borders. Maybe I'll complete another quilt this year. Hmmmmm.

The colour isn't really right on this but it gives you an idea. Here is a close up of the quilting I had done.

Here is Henrietta with her friend.

I have also completed a few more Farmer's Wife blocks.

In between all this I have been crocheting a lap rug for charity.

I have managed to read a few books during the past couple of months. The non fiction ones were really interesting.

Yesterday I went to Spotlight and look what I found! I looove chookies and so does my stitching girlfirend  so I bought some for her too.

Well, I have cut and ironed the binding for my cat's quilt ready to pin on and  machine stitch..  Hopefully I shall get it done this afternoon so I can handstitch the binding to the back tonight.  Maybe, just maybe, I will have a pic for you next time. Until then, many angel hugs and blessings to you all.


  1. Wow Ondrea ... now that is some output!! The bedrunner is gorgeous, and I am so looking forward to seeing HW completed:)

  2. What a great result from the "shake". Love the bedrunner and that chook fabric is sooooo cute. Any plans for it or just had to have it - as you do!!!!

  3. Some of the ladies in mt applqiue group did the entire Henriette project. Very cute.
    You have some wonderful projects going.

  4. The bedrunner is so pretty, Ondrea. :)
    Love your HW block, too. I have kept those patterns for "ron" the lazy bugger. I would like to start on something like that, or the Country Cottages BOM from Shabby fabrics- are you saving them? Also been saving Val Laird's but all I have done so far is get the same fabrics that she was using. Can't seem to get going and you make me feel ashamed of myself with all of the wonderful items you are getting done.xx I am spending too much time on the puter methinks.....
