A warm hello to you all. It is certainly a real winter here at the moment. Just perfect for stitching , knitting and crocheting. I have managed to complete a few things since my last post. Last week I was asked to make some more bibs for one of my great nieces as they are the only ones that seem to fit her properly.  So, I got to work as soon as I could find all the bits and pieces I needed amongst all the chaos in my sewing room. I made 4.

Then, onto completing my cat's quilt. I just need to design and stitch a label to the back. Before you go oo and ahhh, NO, it is not my quilting expertise. I have none! One of the girls from my patchwork group did it for me. She does a fantastic job.

Henrietta Whiskers is on her way to completion!!! Yey!!!! I have pieced all the blocks together and am rather pleased with how it is looking so far. I just need to decide what fabrics to use for the inner and outer borders then I can applique the rest of the crows and stars onto the border. Ofcourse, once it is basted and quilted it still needs buttons sewn on various places before it is finished properly.

I have also finished the crocheted knee rug for charity.

 Yesterday I received the next blocks and fabrics from Sue Daley's Block to Block. Guess what I am washing today?

Well, that's all for now folks. Thanks for taking the time to visit . I am off to wash fabrics, knit for penguins and finish another quilt top. Maybe the next post will be flowers and penguins hehehehe.

Angel blessings to you all.
