Bits and bobs

Today I have done little bits of this and that and not a whole lot of anything!! #2 son happily presented me with a pair of jeans that needed hemming
a pair of jeans on my sewing machine and they are not mine!!!! Actual to be honest I don't mind and they don't take long to do....

this was a little table runner I started yesterday and finished today..very simple...

and a little quilt done, just needs a little hand sewing...

the first of three Blankets of Love under construction...

they need trimming, sandwiching...

and quilting....

I traced this beautiful bear to stitch..,,, this is from Michelle Ridgway...

and this afternoon I made another star fruit cushion...looks a bit sad without it's stuffing doesn't it!!
I had better go and get dinner sorted or we will be eating after 8pm again!!
Happy sewing.

So many lovely projects going on except for the jeans but you are right they don't take that long with me it's just the thought :)

Hi Sue, love your header pic!
you've been a busy girl, & yes the cushion does look a bit strange, but not for long... don't you hate it when dinner prep gets in the way of sewing?!

Doesn't your son know our machine only make quilts, they don't do mending :-) The pincushion looks a bit like a jesters hat at this stage.

Hello Sue,

Lots of great projects, I had to cut up three pairs of sons jeans the other week to turn into shorts. The things Mum's do! Enjoy that stitchery.

Happy days.
Bev.
