A Few Good Things

I had meant to post a little sooner than this but you know how it goes, so I am just going to share a few things from last week. Of course I already posted about my super BQS3 Mini from Trudi.

I made a couple of Crazy Patchwork blocks for Judith's Bee Blessed.
I did a little shopping..............for Christmas makes - it's Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Christmas Pageant in Green by Marisa and Creative Thursday for Andover
and a little Lollipop by Sandy Gervais for Moda (and old line)
          that I bought to play with my little pile of Lucy's Crab Shack and Pure.........I am building a stash
                   because I am joining in with Leanne's Mod Pop sew a long and I plan a big quilt.

One of the lovely ladies in my class has spent several months in Canada this summer. I think she did a lot of border hopping and managed to fit in a little shopping for teech! Some new dies for Gordon, my Go!! Thanks again Denise.

Yesterday I managed to jump in and join Mouthy Stitches Part 2 - we are going to be swapping tote bags, looking forward to that one. This is my inspirational mosaic.

And this morning I managed to complete my penultimate Zakka project, the Happy Garland Memo Hoop. My photo appears a wee bit blurry but it's too late now to take another. I used up scraps of my 1001 Peeps and made it to match the bunting I made for grand daughter Ava's nursery, that also matched the quilt.....  

Now I need to go link up my hoop before I miss the deadline.


  1. Looks like a great bit of stash building there - some lovely choices.

    I like your hoop and bee blessed blocks too.

  2. You are going to have a beautiful stack for the Mod Pop. I really love the hoop, Ava is going to grow up surrounded by beautiful handmade things.

  3. My you've been a busy bee! Love my BB blocks, and the zakka hoop is uber cute! Those SG fabrics are lovely and soothing! Jxo

  4. Lots of good things going on here. BB blocks are nice and the mod pop stack will make a serene quilt. Zakka hoop made me smile when I saw the ame on it! Di x

  5. Ahh, gotta love students that shop for teacher ;o)

    I would link up my hoop, but my version has hints of sweary words, so I'd better not... :oD

  6. You have been busy! Really cute hoop :-)

  7. Love the pegs holding the letters. You sound like you are going to be really, really busy!

  8. Lovely new fabrics and dies for Gordon - he'll be busy making lots of things for you to sew!! Love the hoop xx

  9. Sheila every week I host Sunday Stash for posts just like this where you talk about new fabric or notions. Please pop over and link this one or next week's as the link stays open for a week. Love to have you join in and give the UK perspective.
