Sunday Sitrep

I've been absent, I'm sorry, LIFE ... nuff said!

But I did get my Mouth Stitches Pouch made for my swap partner ...


I even managed a wee pocket inside


I'm pleased with how well the sip ends went, thanks to a great tip by Susan  :) 


and I took a little inspiration from Hadley with some hardware


I hope my partner like it,  I'm rather taken with it myself!


and in true swap fashion, I've been thinking extras, and these scraps from my Made in Cherry quilt could be just the ticket, despite being ticket sized (about 4 1/2" x 2 1/4" - 3" ish) 

Would you be happy to get scraps that size? 
I have some more to go with these, but these do come as a collection

I also got to do some work on the Ab Fab Free Bees round robin for this month ...


I chose a block from one of the 100 blocks magazines ...


a bit of a border or two and some applique ...


but this one is still speaking to me, as much as I am ready to send it on to Lynz in the morning, I may have to hold off a little , though the way life is, it could be just quicker to post it!

I've been doing a little more cutting, but not on anything I should have been working on ...


I've been staring at this little bundle that was a Moda Scrap Bag of Verna ...  it's been goading me for a while ... more on that in the week

and I got the block for the Pea Room BOM made ready for the meeting tomorrow night ...


Phew...  it was a productive weekend! 

Exactly what I needed to put everything back into balance and perspective ...

Hope you've all had a creatively focused weekend too!

happy quilting!

Whew, you were super busy! Love the pouch and the Echo scraps (although I'm completely taken with Echo in general, so perhaps don't just take my word for it lol) Great blocks too!
