1st quarter FAL... already!

Back in January I declared my intentions for the first quarter of the Finish along hosted by Leanne

I had five projects that I listed and only managed to get two done, although another two are well on their way to completion

This was my first finish which you can read about here

This quilt was made for a work collegue who is going through chemo at the moment.  I found out since I made this quilt that she had recently decorated her bedroom - purple.  How serendipitous was that then! She is undergoing number 4 out of 6 chemo this week and is doing well

And here is my 2nd finish

This was an orphan block that had been lying around far too long.  I made it in to a cushion cover and sent it off to a friend I have known forever, but rarely get to see (although, we are meeting up in London in a few weeks!).  She is always saying nice things about my sewing when I (occasionally) post pictures on to twitter.

So, 2 out of 5: not so bad.  I have high hopes for next quarter, as I have so many things that need finishing!!


  1. Good to hear your friend is recovering well Catherine - your quilt is a great finish and so satisfying to find a good use for an orphan block :)

  2. Yay for two finishes! Much more important is the good news about your friend.

  3. Nice finishes C and it is good that your friend's Tx is going well. Di x

  4. Lovely finishes! Glad to hear your friend is tolerating her treatment well xx


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
