this last week or so

 I have traced this design out so I can do this in the car on the way to Timaru this afternoon
 and pieced this quilt top together, binding ready, just needs to find it's way to the quilty machine
 and really enjoyed putting this little fellow together, we had a workshop over the weekend so quite a few of these about now..
 potted out some garden colour
added sashing & borders to this Christmas pressie, it too needs to find it's way to the quilty machine
and a bit of hand quilting just to keep the fingers busy at night time
let me leave you with this snapshot taken on my walk yesterday morning, these are the beginnings of this years pine cones, isn't the colour stunning?
enjoy your week,

lots of loveliness in this post. Leanne Beasley's stitcheries are always a great project to do.
Looks like your quilting machine is going to be busy.
Love the pine 'flowers' I hadn't seen them like these before.

Looks like it's been a busy week for you too! I like doing hand sewing when on the move too.

Cute doll. The Christmas quilt looks like it was fun and beautiful colours.

Lovely unusual cones. I've got a Korean fir which gives blue cones.
