Happy days ...

Although I haven't been blogging much (am on IG lots!), I haven't stopped quilting. The week off work - seems like months ago - was a lovely and relaxing week and quilting was great therapy for my tired soul. 

I finished a quilt for my friend Ajoke's daughter's 18th:

The backing fabric is from their family's country (Nigeria) - isn't it beautiful? I was so happy it was suitable for free motion quilting:

One for my husband's cousin Lorena in America:

And one for my sister's boyfriend's Mum, Beryl:

I'm working on a Christmas table runner for my friend Daphne: 

And a Christmas quilt for ?? Don't know yet; haven't decided:

And this weekend's sewing will be extra fab-u-lous because my friend Fran @patchyroses is visiting with her delightful daughter, Rosie. What WILL we get up to?! I'll let you know :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

A week off work = lots of sewing :)

I have taken this week off work, not to go on holiday, not to entertain guests, just to spend time with hubby at home and recharge my batteries. It's been great. As well as spending time with loved ones, I have been doing a lot of sewing!

Three quilts basted:

And quilted:

And binding attached:

I made a Pants Bag:

Cut 257 pieces for a new quilt:

And made one block for a Xmas table runner:

Phew! I shall be glad to go back to work for a rest!!
