A few things!

Hi all,

I have a few things to share since I haven't blogged for a few weeks (not counting the Bloggers Quilt Festival posts).

First up is my Embroidery Club project from my local PWS. Last month the project was a needle case. I used a font and simple design that was already in my machine for the front.

The inside has little pockets and patches of wadding for used needles to be stored so you can find them later.

I am really enjoying these little projects that Cath comes up with every month!

I am doing some procraftinating at the moment, I really should be working on sewing some clothes but I keep finding other things to do! I used some leftover triangles to make a little quilt....I am only giving sneak peeks because it is supposed to be a surprise.

And a look at the quilting. I am hoping to quilt it's much bigger friend, my V is for Violet quilt, tomorrow on the quilting machine - unless my sore throat gets worse, but at the moment I feel better than I did last night.

I pulled out a handbag that has been a WIP for a long time and did some work on it.

Still not finished as it is getting quite tricky now so I am just looking at it while I work on other things. Like putting together this little bundle for a block I drew up on EQ7 and am having a play with...do you think I need to add another colour? I have changed some of the low volumes so it is not so matchy matchy.

Oh, and lastly I finished another block for the Afternoon Delight quilt.

Bye for now,

Jess :)

Love your machine needle book! I always make a muddle with my needles, especially if I use a new one only for a short while and could reuse it again, but can't remember what size it was. Must make myself something similar, although it won't be as snazzy as yours ;)! I hope your sore throat is getting better soon. xx

Oh my goodness - you have been busy! Each project is more amazing than the last, but I have to say that block is fabulous. I loved seeing all your projects. You really inspired me here. I've got to get to the sewing room - fast - before it wears off!

Count me in, really need somewhere to store my machine needles - is the pattern avaliable online? Love the half square triangles, that is going to make someone very happy!
