here it is!

all finished and given to my friend today.
This was our last day working together after 8 years...
she made this amazing cake to share with us...
she is the Thursday morning tea cake provider...
it was delish...
sadly now we will need to find someone else to make our cakes for Thursday mornings...

just scrolling back thru my blog having a look,
and at my pages tabs at some of the swaps I've been in,
recalling beautiful gifts sent and received...
the things I use often, like my heart pot holders,
the lovely star placemats...
and thinking about ones I have sent and thinking I would like to revisit them with ones for myself,
so I think the To Do list has just become a little longer!

loving it!

all the machine applique is done...
(found that I really don't like machine applique very much, 
 quick results,
 but I like the smoother finish of needleturn).
hopefully will get most of the quilting done tomorrow,
nothing like a deadline to get you motivated!

sneaky peek

working on this one for another work colleague who is retiring in a couple of weeks time.
doing machine applique as it's a lot quicker than the traditional methods,
and I'm a little time poor at the moment!

update time!

sorry I'm such a bad blogger these days!
ok, working on a secret squirrel project so no piccies of that!
but this is what I made for one of the girls from work who is retiring after 50 years in pharmacy!
this weekend is a LOOOONG weekend in Victoria, so hopefully I will be getting some stitching time somewhere along the way...
enjoy your weekend with whatever you are up to
