Back into gear.

Hello dear friends,
I am late getting on here. I have been busy with some Grandmother duties and should be back into gear after tonight.
I have lots of projects planned and need to get up to date this week.(that doesn't mean finishing all my UFO's) I have to have some of those on my shelves as they make me think I am so busy.
My new fabrics and projects will arrive next week.  I am always happy as long as there is a new project on the horizon. My Wonkey Donkey quilt is nearly finished. I have finished quilting it and this afternoon will be starting on the binding .

Some finishes and near finished projects from lovely friends at quilting class.
Barbara has finished a happy colourful quilt for a dear little boy she knows.

Vickie has embroidered some lovely blocks for her sewing machine cover. I am sure it will be the loveliest machine cover ever. It will be so pretty.

I will have to show when the cover is finished next post.

Lynne has been putting to use some embroidered blocks of the ladies from Red Brolly.
A very pretty Tote bag.

Sondra has started putting the blocks together for her  Owl quilt. The fabric she chose is great and the owls all look so cute.

There is plenty of inspiration at our weekly class. I must add and lots of fun.

Here is an update of our little bird Milo.

He says a lot more words now. He says  "What Poppy do, Come on, Where are you, Get your blanket on. He does say other words too. He is a little character and a naughty one sometimes.
  Well I must away and do my binding.
Happy sewing .

Tell Lynne that I really like what she has done with the embroderies. I did after the pattern and have never used it. This bag is much better.

Hugs and greetings from Gudrun
