What is on my frame?

I thought I would show everyone what I am working on
at the moment.
It is a block of the month quilt started I think in 2005!
It has been on the frame for nearly 2 months.

So I thought I had better get going.
It has been easier now as I am at home in the mornings
and only go into the office for 2 hours in the afternoon.
I am almost finished quilting around
the flower blocks and borders.
Once done I will continue hand quilting the chain blocks.
The next thing to go onto the frame is mattress protectors to earn a bit of cash!

Until next time
Happy sewing

No fun sewing day

Today was a working day.
I had an order for fitted sheets to be ready on Monday.
They are stitched and packed ready for delivery.
So no pictures.
Cathryn is away at a sleep over and tomorrow is a family 21st braai
Monday is the start of the new working year.
I wonder what it will bring as I am no longer working for my husband
and hope to find something else to bring an income.
I am hoping I will be able to do my sewing from home,
enough to keep me busy and also earn enough along the way.
We will see what 2009 brings

Until later
Happy sewing

Still sewing ...and finished

Today was a major sewing day.
No breaks,well almost none.
I have managed to complete all the blocks and I
am now putting them all together so.....
the top should be done by tonight.
This mystery has turned out so nicely although some stages were a bit tedious
I think I will make another of the same.
Finished top photos to follow

Happy sewing
Completed top
The first for 2009!!

New Year Greetings

Good Morning all!
I did manage to stay up until the new year.
Cathryn and I watched 2 movies.
Both of us commented that we hoped this year 2009 would
not be like it(2008) ended.... both of us in tears!!
Still it was lovely to watch with her and see the new year in.
Today I am busy sewing my NYE mystery quilt.
Have already found I am 1 block short.
Until later, Happy sewing
