Stitchery finish

Can you beleive in, three weeks in a row I have something finished. OK this week is only small, but it is still a finish.

This is the stitchery kit I picked up last year when I was visiting my mum. I used a varigated threat and love the way it turned out.

I think I'll need to iron it before I hang it on the wall.

And here is why I normally don't put things on the floor to take their picture. I only just put it down and Fritz was sitting on it, with Taz line up to sit on it next.

Stats for the week.
Completed projects - 1

Growth Chart

LM is now three and a half and I finally finished her growth chart. I will have to look up how tall she was at one and two and add them along with how tall she is now.

This was a panel that I just added borders to the sides. I kept the quilting quite simple as I think this will make it easier to write on. I will find out if this is the case when I start adding her information. I just stitched the outside of the blocks and out lined the vine and the little girls.

This is about all the sewing I got done this week, but my front garden is now fully weeded. On the next nice day I will add the mulch and it will be done.

Stats for the week.

Spring and Baby quilts

Were has the time gone.  It has started to warm up here, so I have been desperately trying to win the war with the weed in my garden.  I think I may take the battle in the front yard but they have me on the run in the back.  It doesn't help that it's been nice the last couple of week then rain on the weekend when I have the most time to get out in the yard.
I have managed a little sewing. I finished the two baby rag quilts and will be giving them both away this Sunday.  I love how soft and cuddly these feel now that they have been washed.

I also finished quilting LM growth chart and am working on hand sticking the binding. I also started quilting my jar table runner.  Will take photo next week (I promise)

Last post about Heritage Park Quilt Show

I thought I would finish out the week with my last post on the Heritage Park Quilt Show.  The first few pictures are from around the park, once again this is such a nice setting. I am planning on going back with the family this year.
Now for a few quilts. I really liked the 3D flowers on this table runner, I think it added a fun element.
And a few more that I liked.

 Just when I thought I was saturated with quilt viewing and couldn't look at another quilt these caught my eye, I was leaving the park at the time heading for a coffee shop until it was time to come back for the dinner.

 Here is a close up of the middle quilt.
Hope you enjoyed seeing  a few quilts from the Show.
