Just where does the time go. I seem to be busy all of the time trying to fit more into a day than is sometimes possible. I think I should start keeping a day to day record of what I do and achieve.
I have had a bit of fun making a few little head bows for Zoe Grace. I think they are so cute on a babies head and these few looked lovely on her black unruly hair.

Woops I think she moved as I was taking this photo.

The cot quilt is now completed and the bed quilt now has the borders on. That will be sent to the quilters soon so then all is finished for Zoe's beautiful room.

Out of the left over fabrics I made a little wall hanging doing an Amanda Daly pattern called "Blooming" Although you can not see in the photo the centre of each flower is beaded which makes the quilt quite pretty.

When I had my first baby a long time ago my Mum made me lots of little matinee jackets and nighties she had purchased from "The Stitchery" I found them at the last quilt and craft show and bought this little matinee jacket. I did the embroidery and stitched it together and a very dear friend Bev did the crocheting for me what a treasure.

I have also made myself a new brooch

There have been lots of little UFO's hiding in my craft room so my thoughts today was to get a few of them finished. Once I got started I was on a roll. The first one finished was this little free Christmas block from Gail Pan designs the embroidery was finished before last Christmas so it was time that it got finished.

These two little embroideries belong to my very dear friend Pat who is going through some bad health issues at the present. She loves to embroider but can not use a sewing machine so I bring them home to finish with the borders and hanging loops. I have lost count of how many of these Pat has made, all little gifts for her many Grand Daughters.

The binding is finally going on my Dresden Plate quilt I showed in a post quite awhile ago. I sent the quilt out to be quilted so that took 8 weeks and when the quilt was returned I could not find the binding fabric I had so carefully put away. I have been looking for the fabrics at so many patchwork shops and being a deleted colour of Fossil Fern I had almost given up on ever finding it until I went to Patchwork Products at Rydalmere. I was so delighted to find she had the exact fabric I had taken weeks to find. To this day my binding fabric is still missing but I am sure it will be found one day. Hopefully by the end of this week another quilt will be finished.

the cot quilt looks gorgeous, well done.
Love the cute headbands, she is a cutie even if it's a blurred photo.
Pretty fabric that green, glad you found some, can't wait to see the full picture when the binding goes on
