Ticking things off

Whilst I havn't blogged the past few days, I have been doing some sewing in the evenings.
I finished this:
I just did a little bit of quilting on it

I really love how it has turned out.

I made a start on some of the items on my finish-a-long list too

I started to quilt my Christmas Day quilt

Its great to have something to hand sew in the evening.
But best of all I did this today:

... added the horizontal sashing on to the rows of blocks and sewed it all together.  Some of the sashing came from Jenna at sew happy geek from her scrap giveaway that I entered

Its great to have scraps that I havn't used and add new colours - I really love the stripy orange, red, yellowy one she sent me

(I did do all this sewing after my revision obviously!!)  I really love the way this quilt has turned out and can't wait to get it finished.  I normally buy my wadding from my LQS but not sure if thats the cheapest way: can anyone recommend somewhere where they had great service and a good price? 
I feel like I am starting to get things ticked off my finish list at long last!
