The last 12 " Mini Swap was due the end of September and I posted mine off to Shez by Express Post as I was a couple of days late and she was flying to Thailand. Whew! Thankfully it arrived on time. I was eagerly awaiting a mini for myself and was sooooooo thrilled to receive this gorgeous mini from Lyn earlier this week. Unfortunately, Lyn does not have a blog so we can't see all her work but I am sure it is all as lovely as this mini. Lyn does not know me, yet the mini is so apt as my dear dad is a bee keeper.
And, yes, my cat just had to be in the pic!
On Tuesday I did a workshop with one of my patchwork groups making a Christmas wallhanging. You would not believe how much bias tape this project used or how long I stood ironing it all on but it was well worth the time and energy. I still need to stitch the bias down and then finish the quilt properly. I may just bag it and quilt it rather than put binding on.
Today I was determined to complete 2 of my stitcheries. Another Rosie Q block of Simple Blessings.
And another Gail Pan hexie pincushion design.
I am hoping to get the above RQ stitchery needle turned into a block like the previous one and the pincushion completed by next week. I think I put another pincushion stitchery on here last time and that one needs to be completed too. "Slowly slowly" is my motto. Just trying not to go so slow that I end up going backwards!
So, next time I WILL have some completed projects to show you.
