A small finish :)

I hope you don't mind but I haven't finished a quilt this week but I did finish off a set of gifts for our lovely nephew and his girlfriend who popped down from Chester to stay with us for a few days. I'd love to share them with you.

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday

They've just moved in together so a few cushions were in order - for one I did a little paper-piecing tutorial (my first!) and the other two, I did different designs but used the same fabric:

And the backs:

And there was too much 'scraps' leftover so I used Ayumi's (Pink Penguin) cute tutorial to make this little sweet basket:

I couldn't let dear Tasha go home without a Pants Bag:

Oh, and there's no show without Punch! 

I've said it before, Nell has absolutely NO respect for my work ... none ... not a smidgen!

I'm planning a whole weekend of sewing:

# finish my 6 FWQ blocks - have only made 2 this week :(
# baste, quilt and bind Aunty G's lap quilt
# piece the back of Marisa's lap quilt

What have you got planned? Whatever it is, I do hope you have fun :)


  1. What cute cushions..they'll love them! Enjoy your cooler London's cold and rainy here today and the sewing machine beckons! Love the cat, too...and you're right-no respect at all LOL!

  2. Cats - such elegance and poise, as they clean their bum on your lovely cushion...

  3. I love the pants bag (as well as the cushions, but I've already commented on them!)..... just what does one use a pants bag for?

  4. All lovely until we get to that disrespectful kitty. Oh Nell! LOL
    BTW QT I have a new kitty I adopted from the shelter, his name is Casanova and he's a black & white too! I'll have to post pictures of him. Nell is disrespectful and Casanova is ill mannered. I thought you enjoy another way that we are QT's.


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
