Knee deep ...

As you can tell, not much blogging going on, I've been a little busy on the quilting front, and have some tight deadlines to meet. With Fat Quarterly retreat fast approaching, time seems to be slipping through my fingers faster than sand right now!
So since I was lasted here this is some of what's been happening around these parts, and down the bottom of the garden ...








Done for a local lady, who was thrilled, I'm pleased to say!








I had great fun quilting this one up for Tiina of Tikki Patchwork, so if you are heading that way, have a look out for it in the shop, I'd love a picture :)




I managed to turn some practice pieces into postcards, and one may have been used already :)




It's a great way to use up up what would have otherwise been scraps. I must make more!




There was also a little free motion play at the Kitchen Guild, a fun day in Derbyshire marked as always with lots of tea and cake!




A little more quilting, no babies here, but a friends daughter is expecting her 2nd...




And the first of 3 charity quilts for Pea Room quilters, to be raffled off later this in aid of the British Heart Foundation




And then here was the Teenage Divas prom, best I save that wee nugget for another post!
So, forgive me for not adding links, I'm doing this way too late, and on my iPad, as I am having some issues with my laptop!
Time for some sleep! (before I wade back to the studio for more)
Happy quilting!

I always feel a bit exhausted just reading about all the things you get done!!! I really don't know how you do it. I love the black and white and red quilt, I fancy doing something in those colours myself. looking forward to the prom post (all our school leavers left from outside our house to go to their ball last Friday, and we all had great fun going out and watching them in their wonderful dresses getting into vintage buses and limos) xx

Love those postcards - so very very gorgeous! I'm also panicking about retreat - am sure we'll all get sorted in the end (that's what I keep telling myself anyway!) x

I do not know where you find the time to breathe! You've got your job, family and allotment on top of all that sewing!!!

I hope you're managing to get some sleep, rest and sewing/quilting time for yourself among all that lot?
