Reporting In!

with little bit and pieces!

Firstly, I decided to get some order into my stash!


I borrowed this book from my library...

And got cutting...


into 2", 3.5" and 5" squares!

There is something satisfying about make order out of scrap!

And I have started a new secret project.....



but I have only got to the cutting stage with this!

I have managed a little sewing...

Here are some of my favourite Farmer's Wife blocks together....


And the hand quilting on my Modern Sampler Christmas Runner! ooops!


Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIPS Wednesday!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced



Happy days...
