Finishes and other stuff

Its great to finish this project "My Garden" by Lynette Anderson as I joined the new "Christmas Fun" project and the first one has arrived from "Patchworks Plus" I promised myself that I wouldn't start it till the other was finished so far my  plan is working.


I bought the kit from "Homespun and Beautiful" and I'm very pleased with the lovely fabric.



The had painted buttons are so cute and really make the quilt come to life.






These are the fabrics and pattern for  "Christmas Fun"  , they are just waiting for me to start, I'd better get a move on as the next one is nearly due. Sarah  at "Patchworks Plus" has chosen lovely fabrics for this little quilt.



A great win for me from Michelle at " Rag-Tag Stitchin" in her March giveaway, love the pattern and the extas are adorable too, cute bear tag, thanks so much Michelle.


Mmmmm my g/daughter June cooked potato bake for us the other night and it was terrific.


What a ptiy she covers hers with all that sauce, doesn't really need it I don't think.


Another finish are these little baskets from the "Hatched and Patched" pattern "Lets Celebrate" very easy to make and I'm sure they would make great gifts with sewing goodies or choccies in them, its a sample for my friend "Tess" at "Raggedy Station"  for her new shop "Homespun and Beautiful".


And....... proof  the my friend "Teresa" is really still doing the "Gardeners Journal" quilt even though she has begun the "Tis the Season" project, I promise to keep her on track and make sure she finishes, you will find both these BOM's on the "Stitch-a-long" blog so pop over and have a look at all the wonderful progress the girls are making.
