Some more thinks I have been working on

I bought Hatched & Patched´s "Some Kind of Wonderful" book last year of which so far I have made the travel document holder, which will come in handy this year!
And also the pincushion and the two stitcheries that you can see. Not sure whether I will apply the stitcheries for what they were intended for in the book, maybe....

we will have to wait and see me thinks!

What I have been doing.....

I know I said I would get down to some of my UFO´s or PhD's (Projects half Done) as Angela likes to call them, but couldn't resist making a small quilt. You see I had put all the christmas decorations away and the Christmas Wreath Quilt went away and the table was bare. So I just had to make this table topper to freshen the place up and it didn't take me that long. Anyway this is my excuse!

But I can now cross off my list, my finished Bargello Quilt that had been waiting for quilting and binding to be added and here it is,

I love this technique so much, I would love to do a Bargello Quilt that requires 20 fabrics, I have the book just plucking up the courage to make one. BUT I still need to do my PhD´s. Maybe in between doing my PhD´s I could sneak in a new project!! What do you think?

It is nice to have some more time to myself and actually get around to making gifts for my friends, which in the past I have found difficult to do.
Here is one I made for a dear friend of mine,

and also a friend of my through Sara´s school, who has nothing to do with Patchwork, but I know she likes animal skin and this fabric shouted out to me to make the purse for Anabella.

I still have another delayed present to make, so I shall get onto that next week!! I know that I have some UFO's to finish, but first is the outstanding presents and then.......!

Well I can't believe that we are in 2012. Happy New Year to everyone.

I really hope that this year I shall be able to finish some of my UFO's before starting anything new!!! It is no point in making new year resolutions, as I don't think I will be able to keep to them. All I can say is that I will do my best to finish my outstanding projects.
I have decided to reduce some of my teaching for personal reasons and will now only be doing classes at Patchmania.

Also it will be an interesting year as my DH will be changing jobs and going to yet another country.

So all it leave is for me to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
