Winter has arrived and it has been freezing and a great time to be indoors enjoying my sewing. I have been sewing some blocks together , quilting and binding .With the quilts on my lap they are keeping me cosy and warm. I always seem to have quilting and binding UFO's waiting.
These are 2 quilts I have finished for the Wraps with Love Inc. charity.
Most volunteers work from home and knit, crochet, patchwork, weave ,machine sew. It is a voluntary organisation and the wraps get sent all around the world and Australia as thousand of people die each day from cold and trauma-Hypothermia. They get sent to the bush fire relief and flood victims and refuges also.
I have knitted the squares before and the other ladies put them together to make a warm wrap.
My friends from the weekly sewing group have been impressive and have finished some amazing quilts .
Val has finished her embroidered ladies, they are so adorable and pretty and has made them into the most gorgeous quilt. The fabrics and the scolloped borders are beautiful.
Glenda has finished the table runner below. It is amazing so lovely and bright. She is so clever as it looks a hard pattern to me!!
It has a stunning design .
I know you are going to love Sharon's baby quilt it is delightful. So cute !! Any little baby would just love to have it. Such a special gift.
I will be getting away from the coast for a few days to the Beautiful Blue Mountains area to the lovely tranquil valleys with their white mist and open spaces then up to the mountains to the little villages and gardens with the trees changing colours for winter. It is cool and brisk so have packed plenty of warm woollies so I can be out and about enjoying the scenery.
Some of the things I will be enjoying. It is one of my favourite places to visit.
Till next time,
