Lots more than I thought.

I have been inspired by Vreni to try and show what I have been making this last year, so here goes, First up my little quilt for ALQS4. It went to live in Australia. Then I hand quilted a quickie panel for A Little Horse Trust tombola. These are in no particular order. I made a bed size quilt for No 1 D. She got it for her birthday in July. On the rocking chair is a throw I made for a good friend who was moving to England to live and work. I made a lovely hexie pincushion/caddie, but not sure I can find the pic. Was just about to give up when I spotted it.I used some green fabrics to make a shopper for a lady from Kells Co Meath who gave me a BIG BAG of pieces she couldnt use. (it was like Christmas come early) I realise now there is no good photo of the finished bag. The cushion I made when practising windmill blocks. I tried to have placemats ready for the table at Christmas. Didn't happen. Got 6 finished by 31st Dec. One more today, and hope to get the 8th done before I pack the Christmas things away til next year. They dont match. Just made with the bits and pieces I had to hand. Phew!! Happy Sew Year everyone. ps just noticed the smiley face on my hexie. Grandaughter Sarah did that. She loves to organise me.
