We've Been Flat Out...
We've been working hard on an old UFO.....

It's needed a lot of thought and contemplation.....
as we made colour choices and fabric placement decisions.

The UFO is the first Leanne House BOM. I found a credit slip with this block dated September 2004. 
This is block 3. This is what has been achieved today. There is an embroidery block ( that is done) still to be inserted. It'll happen. We might have to have a little sleep though to keep our creativity levels up!

Working Towards A Finish

This little quilt has been waiting and waiting for its binding to be sewn on. It was quilted back in 2006. The binding was stored in a carefully labelled bag. So why the delay? It was having a "little holiday" in the cupboard and despite several searches couldn't be located! I had even started to try and find an alternative. Imagine my sheer delight and relief, when it made an appearance during the Great Cupboard Reorganisation event that took place at the start of the new year.
So with some help and encouragement, the binding has been sewn on.

Then it had to be checked and trimmed.

Busy Days
In between all that, I have been trying to get another quilt finished. As always, I realise I am fortunate to have "expert advice" close at hand!
