Some Finishes.

I had a productive July making gifts for a couple of swaps I have been participating in.

First is Mrs Martin's My House my Home Swap.  You might remember I got the gift order wrong so while everyone else made kitchen gifts I made Michelle a sewing bag.  The pattern is from Gail Pan's new book Patchwork Loves Embroidery.  I love this book there is so much I want to make from it but this is what I made for Michelle.

This is what Michelle of Britannia Creek made for me.

I love it.  Thanks Michelle.  My niece loves butterflies so lucky she is in Darwin otherwise she might have claimed it.  I did send a photo so she could see it.

These are the things I made for Vickie in the Christmas in July Swap.

A Marg Lowe design decoration with Snowmen button.

A felt star garland.

A scallop edge hand towel with mitton fabric.


Santa cushion from Gail Pan's 2014 Simply Christmas book.  Another book I want to make more from.

I also finished my niece's birthday quilt.  It is so big I don't have anywhere to take a photo of it.  This is a quarter of the quilt.

If she doesn't like it I am asking for it back.  The pattern is in Camille Roskelley's Simply Retro book and is called Fresh.  I did have intentions of making one from Scrumptious but it was so hard to press I am not sure if I can do one that size yet unless someone volunteers to press the seams when I have it altogether.

I am off to do some more sewing.

Until next time happy stitching.
