Halfway through and nearly there?!!

This  year is flying past and my son's wedding is getting closer!   Everything is nearly organised so we just need to hope for some sunny weather.
We had a lovely short break in Northumberland and I took some great photos of the castles and beaches.

But once back I have been busy with more projects for the Charity Coffee morning.

These were all made with a jelly roll of Lewis and Irene fabric I received free at the Festival of Quilts last year when I subscribed to Fabrications magazine. 

I also started a new quilt - Rain Drops from Quilt Now magazine using some of my new fabric from ARt Gallery fabrics.

It is very Modern with lots of white, and I am enjoying the applique of the raindrops onto the white background. It is very portable doing it this way so useful to take on holiday. 

I also completed the Crazy quilt course I was doing on line and have a nice block which I intend turning into a needle case.

I continue to swap postcards and pincushions in a couple of swaps and love receiving the packets in the post. 
This is my latest pin cushion from  Zane in Latvia.

And this is my latest postcard from Maria  in Australia as part of Sheila's "Summer" swop 

I have signed up for Cheryll's Santa Sack swop again as it is always a good one to be in over the next few months.

My big finish is this quilt from a Sue Daly pattern which is for a friend for her birthday - which was in April! So a bit late but I'm sure she will like it.  

I enjoyed the free motion quilting I did on it and also experimented with using Goldren Threads paper for the feather designs. 

Off on holiday again to the Lake District so hoping for warm weather for walking, and time for crocheting and handwork sitting in the sun. 
thanks for stopping by
