Sunday Sitrep

Sunday already again, how did that happen? 

Things are getting buy round here, and there will be a few changes coming ...

But you want to know what I've been up to really don't you?

Well I finished quilting this for a lovely lady ...


and delivered it,  I was very relieved that she loves the quilting I've done for her :) 

So whilst I was out, the LQS had it's annual sale, and these just happened to come home with me ...


I did get some more fabric, but that is for Pea Room BOM, so I'll save it for another day ...

So, because I got some more plain, I am now able to rearrange my fabric plans ...

so these are the fabrics for the Stained QAL about start being hosted by the wonderful Sarah ...


the plain was originally ordered with the 'Made in Cherry' QAL but it just didn't make me happy, so yesterday this teal came home with me, and now I'm definitely a happy quilter...


so Made in Cherry is on it's way!


I followed the advice and starched before I cut, and it is making a real difference ...

I also got another block for the Swoon along made ...


and I got the last block for Miss January of the Brit Bee, so I can get these babies sent back in the morning ...



It's turned cold again, and I was  craving a bit of comfort food, so today we dug out some fruit from the freezer,  and now I give you ...

Rhubarb and Raspberry crumble ...


delicious with custard!  That's better! 

Now about those changes, I've temporarily got some extra hours at work, so the stitching time is going to be more scarce, which requires some serious planning and organisation,  forgive me if I'm not back until next Sunday! 

Happy Quilting!

Gorgeous feathers on the customer quilt.

I have some of that witchy-poo fabric, just a couple of FQs, love the wrinkly stockings on it! What are you going to make with yours?

Lynz said...

Wow, I couldn't pick a favourite bundle there! Your quilting for that lady IS gorgeous as is your swoon block. Not to mention the crumble! Have a nice (if busy) week! *g*

Fiona said...

Sigh, I just love your quilting.
I'm fancying a big dollop of that crumble with custard - yum!

Oh an Echo Cherry is going to be awesome, and a Stained Summersault will look amazing too. You don't get to say that often!

Oooh, that Echo bundle is going to look fab as a cherry. I just started using starch after recommendations at the start of the SHQ QAL, and I am now a great devotee of its powers when piecing!

Sarah said...

Some gorgeous fabrics there Trudi. I guess extra hours at work means extra money, which equals extra fabric?

Gorgeous new fabric and a wonderful finish! Looking forward to seeing your Echo star!
