It's bad enough that work gets in the way of sewing 


But when you don't have use of your left hand 

yes...I'm left-handed.....

the options are limited!

Here are a pin cushion and needle case 

I made earlier.... 

 I must have impressed MrPnP....

he thought I'd bought them!

I'm planning on using this vintage sheet.... 

on the back of this modern solids quilt, 

and admiring my neglected clamshells.

Thankfully I can type one handed.....

Hopefully, I'll be out of this cast soon AND finished 

the reports!

Happy days!

My friend Elizabeth sent me this fun fabric earlier in 

the year...

and I have finally cut into it!

I used mostly the "5th and Fun" range 

by Sandy Gervais,

with some Windham "Party Animals" thrown in for 

extra fun!

(To be honest, I couldn't find any yardage of the

 other fabric and this one seemed to fit the bill!)

I've paired the prints with some soft solid fabrics I 

have been hoarding....

Mini charms (2.5") bordered by 1.5" strips

and this reminds me of Gelati, so that's what I'm 

calling it!

Each square finishes at 4", so it's not a large quilt

at 32" x 36",

but it's mighty pretty!

 I backed it with Lizzy House Mini Pearl Bracelets,

in Peach,

and quilted it simply with a double-line grid.

And for a quick finish, I machined down the binding!

Thanks to a long weekend here in Melbourne,

this quilt took me three days, start to finish!

Linking up with Sew, Stitch and Share....

Happy sewing!

Short and sweet!

Yes, I'm still here!

I started something new...

This Clambake pillow by Jen Kingwell,

will probably become a baby quilt by me.

I'm hand piecing these, 

They are fun blocks to make!

They are about 6" wide and 3" high,

so it may take me a while!

Happy sewing!
