Getting Caught Up and Purple FNWF

Yes!  I remembered to come back! 

So in addition to all the SAL’s, QAL’s and BOM’s, I’ve been to two retreats in the past month.  One was Scrapbooking, and of course, one was Quilting.  I finished two flimsies at the retreat.  I still have to buy some border fabric for the S’Mittens quilt. 

I also finished the yellow quilt that I shared in my last post.  This was actually designed to be a table topper, and the pattern shows small buttons on each of the prairie points.  I may decide to use it as a baby quilt instead, so buttons would not be appropriate.  Hmmm…..  This is an older Bunny Hill pattern, Buttons and Bows.


Earlier in March,  I had a birthday and received this lovely little project folder from my friend Maria.  It came with some lovely threads which I’ve already put to good use!








I also received a pretty little Valentine’s Day gift from my friend Di.  What an unexpected surprise.


Leanne and I did a one-on-one swap, and she spoiled me with Tilda fabrics.  She sent a small quilt, a pin cushion of her own design, some fabric, and some chocolates!  I haven’t even eaten all the chocolates yet. 


I made a small quilt for her, along with a mug rug and a pin cushion.  I actually forgot to take a picture of the small quilt, so I’m hoping she’ll post a picture or send one to me.

Friday night found me stitching giant purple hexies.  The individual hexies are quick and easy, but they are really hard to handle to sew together at this size!  I think I need nine for a baby quilt that I have in mind. 

Other than being sick twice in the past few weeks, I’ve spent almost all my time stitching.  Please don’t direct me to any more cute projects.  Or quilts.  Must go now.  There’s stitching to be done.

Happy Stitching….. Sunny
