fresh sewing day - october

Mmmmm, is this really all that I acheived in October: doesn't look much considering how busy I thought I had been sewing!

I made a couple more of these bags for the hospice to sell

My christmas star that went from this , to never going to be this:

to ending up as this for my S.I.L
with this one being the final design for the modern table runner swap:

I recovered a chair: only 3 more to go

I made a hot water bottle cover a) because I needed one and b) so that I could practise some fmq
And then I got really brave and started to fmq my first ever quilt, normally I quilt by hand!
I made this quilt up from wonky stars, thanks to Susan, who introduced me to them.  This is a quilt that I am doing for a friend to donate to a new childrens ward

And, I know its now sewing or quilting, but I did also make this for Beccys birthday yesterday!

I wonder if Novemeber will be more productive!

Linking this to:
