Happy day/busy day

Today I have been working on the Union Jack Quilt and have the top finished
Tomorrow I will make a backing and try to get it quilted
I also made two of these and have another one ready to go
Yep, couldn't help myself, I have made another two pincushions and have some more fabric ready to go for another one, I do enjoy making these!!
I forgot to show you my wonderful purchases from quilt shops in Christchurch
these fat quarters were 5 for $20....thought that was a good deal!!

and most of these fabrics were 25% off!! Yay!!!
Lots to boost my stash!!
Happy sewing.
