Winter Stitching Wrap Up

Hailstones are you kidding me, I know this is Sarah's Winter Stitching Wrap Up but hailstones today pelting down??

I might not be able to show loads of photos because hubby changed something with the PC and my lovely photos are goodness knows where on it the bloomin' machine, I cannot find them!

So let's see what has been done...

1.  Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap - made using my fav the wonky star block

2.  Completed and hand quilted a hexie pillow.

3. Made my first tumbler quilt (tutorial here) - fmq - love this block

4. Tried my hand at mini hoop art - beaded (of course!)

5.  Made several coin purses

6.  Managed to assemle a quilt top for a QAL hosted by Fat Quaterly a year or so ago, getting nearer to quilting this quilt, looking forward to it being finished. 

7.  Participated in the Mouthy Stitches Swap, made two pouches for my secret partner to choose from.

8.  Made a few linen mug rugs

9.  Made a Stargazer block, was going to make this for son #2 but he isn't that enamoured by it, fair nuff, I love it myself so I will make this into a boyish quilt for s/o!

10.  Made several drawstring bags for a mum emigrating to OZ for the year and to hold everyone's nick nacks

11.  Finished a cot bed quilt

12.  Started a strip pieced quilt - want to make more progress on this, but other things in the way.

13.  Started the Swoon block QAL - 8 more to go!

That's about it, hopefully be the end of the summer I will have some actual quilts to show you and not just beginngs of quilts but I will get there eventually!

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
