First Friday Finish in Forever :)

It's just a little finish but a finish nonetheless and there's not many of them these days so I have to share!

Here's a little charm square bag made for dear SIL from this tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Co finished this afternoon. A close up of the quilting and lining:

And the finish:

Made from chicken fabric to celebrate sis finally getting her rescue chickens:

I also cut 36 x 10" squares for my Christmas Quilt:

And for a large Pants Bag (which will be a Christmas present for a colleague). There was just enough of the Christmas Quilt fabric left over for the ties:

So, if I pull my finger out I might have some more finishes to share ... soon :)

Happy Friday! Linking up with Sarah

Friends, Fun and ... Fashion faux pas?!

Life is great, life is busy, we are having lots of fun in our new home - 4 months since the big move and it feels like one big holiday. 

Nearly every weekend we are seeing family and friends which is absolutely marvellous. If I was doing less of this (I really have no business wearing a 'onesie' at my time of life!):

I'd have more time for this:

The new windows are finally in and Nell is settling in nicely:

And a rare action shot:

I have nearly finished my charm square bag for chicken-owning SIL, loving the lining fabric which I bought in Amsterdam 2 years ago:

More friends and family visiting this weekend! The novelty of us being 'just around the corner' will wear off ... eventually?! 

And I just had to share this with you all ... LOL!

Linking up with the lovely Lorna - gorgeous butterflies :)
