Where Did The Week Go?

Time flies so fast - I haven't accomplished a great deal - lots of little finishes and a little start on my Pincushion Swap! I have managed to puddle along on my Redwork in the evenings (except Wednesday, of course - State of Origin - yay Queensland!)!

Three more little baskets done at sewing group on Thursday!

This is all pretty exciting! Rita, from Redpepper Quilts showed her great new quilt made from this magazine! I find a lot of work of Rita's is just so beautifully styled and finished and she seems to churn it out - do pop over and pay a visit!

This is the finished quilt illustrated here above and below are some fabrics that I hope to play with this weekend!

See the gorgeous handkerchief linens underneath - white, birch and hessian. Just going through my stash - I thought perhaps these will make a lovely table runner in this design for my Christmas in July Swap! Look okay?
Last, but not least - who's the Lucky Girl? I will be the envy of everyone with my 'old' copy of this magazine! Seems to me it was published ages ago and I have always kept it in a special place. I have so few Quilters Companions, it is quite amazing! I know lots of you visit Janet of Quiltsalott - if you don't I bet you will now - she has this glorious quilt as part of her Blog Header! Only a taste of the beautiful work Janet does!
Happy Weekend everyone - I think for you folks in the Eastern States of Australia, it is a long weekend, celebrating the Queen's Birthday - have fun!

You are teasing us with that magazine!
I was working on applique baskets this evening. Not the same as yours but similar. They are easy to do.

Some weeks are more productive than others but you still achieved. Baskets and redwork both looking good and I love Red peppers quilt, I love her use of linen too. You've chosen great fabrics for the quilt, I love the grey/ black with roses. I might have to look out for the magazine, is it current? Thanks for the thumbs up, you sweet thing you. Happy long weekend!

Your redwork is looking great!! I've got to say I love stitching more than I love sewing!! So I've got lots of stitcheries on the go that often don't get to be sewn... cause I prefer to stitch!!

Kristie said...

Busy! Busy! Busy! Love your stitcheries and baskets! I started some baskets similar to those a while back and I just loved working on them!

Weeks do tend to go quickly these days, moreso since I began stitching, and quilting, in recent months. Your work is so pretty and neat
