Tassie projects, and Easter sewing

Finally, here are my finishes so far of the projects from our stitching day in Tassie. 

First one – Helen’s needlecase, where we learned her techniques for needleturn applique..

Vicki’s framed hexagon thread catcher. This will be well used.

I enjoyed finishing Dawn’s project using the Go Baby to cut the tulips (arent they pretty).

It goes so well on my pink cane chair.

The last one that I have completed is Jo’s Memories Scrapbook.  I had such fun making this.

I am still working on the project from Fee. 

My Easter sewing is proceeding well.  I am working on a UFO – a quilt using my Bliss precuts.  I started this quilt in a class called Fun with Precuts at Sew This and That .  I did have fun, even though I have waited more than a year to work on it again.

The bonus here is that I had enough fabrics left to be able to make another quilt. I just had to buy one coordinating fabric.

Have I told you before that I LOVE Bliss.  Well I do !!!!

And a sneaky peek at another project I hope to finish over the Easter break.  Hmm.

So back to the sewing machine. But before I do, here’s the latest crafting project of Kai and Charlie, my gorgeous grandies.  They love making things, and Kai in particular is very much interested in puppets. Kai’s creation is on the left, and on the right is Charlie with his two.   I am waiting for the puppet show the next time I see them.

You seemed to achieved a lot, Marilyn. Wish my Easter sewing had gone as well as that. Too many disruptions!! The boys did a fabulous job on the puppets.

Well done you! Doesn't Helen's needle book look lovely - maybe I should pop some little projects like this beside my chair at night to make sure they get finished :)
