I decided that if I wanted to make some space to work on my sewing table, I should get some of those UFO's out of the way. I have finished the cushions from the Sandy Lush North Country Quilting day back in January. The quilting had been finished for ages but not got been put together into cushions. A miserable day on Sunday got them both finished. Thanks to Margaret who quilted one of them but didn't want a cushion. Now my DH has 2 more cushions on the bed he is not allowed to lie on , there's hardly room for him in the bed now.

This is a sneaky peek of a bag I have made for a pressie, Peter Rabbit fabric for a Rabbit loving friend. The pattern from Leanne's Living the Dream book was straight forward and turned out well.

Sunday also saw Jenny and friends off to a fancy dress party, what a celebrity line up, Marco Pierre White , Duffy, Minnie Mouse, Cruella de Vil, Cleopatra and Velma from Scooby doo.

And finally, this week's scenic shot is Sycamore gap on Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. If you wait a minute or two, Kevin Costner aka Robin Hood Prince of Thieves will ride past in a minute.

Happy Quilting xx

Wishing on a star

The Wish upon a Star quilt is finished and the bunnies are safely asleep on Jenny's bed.

Apart from one hitch when the Fat quarters had run out of the fabric I wanted for the binding - all went well.

Here is a close up of the free motion quilting - quite a big pattern to fit the large quilt but I think I have got the hang of it at last.

I had to go ut into the wilds of Northumberland looking for just the right fabric for the binding and found it here - The Calico Barn You can just see it peeping out from behind a sand dune.

Another scenic shot - Druridge Bay

And yet another from my travels - High Force in County Durham

Happy quilting xx
