My little quilting retreat at the bach is over as DH arrived back after lunch yesterday to surprise me and make the most of the sunshine.  I am very pleased with what I achieved and now I have a pile of finishes I can start thinking about new projects!
 This is "Picnic in a Meadow", a picnic blanket made with the charm squares sent to me by Susan, thanks Susan.
This is a little lap quilt I made from the Moda scrap bag I bought recently, I've called it "Autumn Breezes" and it's for Al.
This is me wrapped in "Round and Round the Nara Gardens" which is finally finished!  So Teresa, Ros and Terry, next time you come to stay you'll actually have this quilt on your bed!
This is the "Essence of Claire" table runner made with fabric I bought in NZ from Claire's lovely shop, Cinnamon Patch.  She chose the fabrics for me to represent her and to remind me of my visit there with Michelle.
 Finally, I made myself a bag with some remnants of upholstery fabric.  It turned out smaller than I planned (hmm, maybe I didn't actually plan that well) but it will hold a portable quilting project so I'm happy with it.


  1. Haven't you been busy getting all that done! Good job.

    While you are enjoying your sunshine we have snow on the ground here in our part of NZ, unheard of!

  4. Great 'finishes'! I love the photo of them all on the bench in the sunshine. I wish I knew how to get a couple more hours out of each day so that I can finish something for once!
