Firstly this week, I made up another three little Twinkler Stars. I now have 5 of the small sized ones. Love these!
Then I made up some Bow Ties.
I have seen them around a lot on the Net recently. Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts had some pretty straightforward instructions here. Hers are much bigger than mine - I used 3" squares for the bows and 2" ones for the centres. The block measures up an 5.5". One of the people I follow on Instagram @redandgreenquilts said recently that they are addictive to make. They sure are! I had not intended on making as many as I did.
During the week I had a birthday. And was absolutely spoilt by my daughter and my 3 lovely grandies. Here is my booty:
A self sharpening ruler; a fat quarter and a "Beetle" bag (project bag)
My gorgeous girl made the bag. So useful. It has two pockets and a pin cushion on the inside of the front and back cover, and some little zip baggies in clear plastic to pop the blocks or embroidery or whatever into for travelling or just keeping things neat. I can see this being used a lot.
We had a sumptuous afternoon tea, and then played Carcassone. Have you ever played that? It was a Christmas present to my Dearly Beloved, and we have had great fun playing it.
This week I have also finished up the quillow I was working on last week. Here it is all folded up into its pillow....
Linking up this week to Angela's RSC link party at soscrappy. Why not go and take a look at what others have done this week.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
