January finishes

I have a winner:

Well done to : Jan - you were number 8.  I have a bunch of scraps etc to send to you. 

And here we are at February 1st.  So, linking up to Lynnes fresh sewing day - discussing finishes.  Well the best for me was confirmation that I have finally finished my AAT exams, having passed the last one.  It was three and half years of home study and a hard slog, but sooooo worth it.  I can now put letters after my name!!!

But what about sewing......

I made a start on a Siblings together quilt

I finally finished piecing together my DWR quilt and am now sewing it on to some fabric.  Originally I was going to hand sew it down but a) I realised I might be 90 before it got finished and b) I tried out both and preferred it machine stiched

And one, actual finish, for a poorly friend

I need to catch up on some bee blocks and some other commitments this weekend.  I am off in to London tomorrow to catch up with Di, which I am really looking forward to.


  1. Nice finishes and well done in passing those exams. See you tomorrow. Di x
