Odds and sods of happenings over the weekend. There is only one finish to show, but I seemed to have poked a dent in several projects, as well as worked on two customer quilts. This is what I encountered when I came up stairs for lunch on Saturday. No, the leather couch and my comfort quilt is NOT the dog bed. But try telling that to this sweet face!
I got hooked on these stitch projects from Primitive Blessings and couldn't put them down until they were done. Karen from Log Cabin Quilter blogged about them and I had to check it out. I've completed the 5 angels, and I stitched them with batting as the lining. Now I have to decide what to do with them.
Here are a couple of close ups. I used variagated DMC, 2 strands. I've done a few other blocks prior to these, they are fast and easy. Perfect for a beginner and the price is right, they are free on the designers website.
On Sunday I pulled out this UFO and assessed the progress. Seems like I started a One Block Wonder, but didn't buy enough fabric. I went back to the original retailer, The Cotton Shop, and couldn't find the fabric anymore. Then one day I was purusing their website and it was back online. I bought a few more yards, stacked it all nice and neat, pinned it and put it away. I cut all these diamonds....
