More Blocks & An LK Update

I've managed to get a further 4 quilt blocks completed ready for a quilt/throw. I've decided I'll be using 9 blocks in total for the quilt & as I'll be making 10 it means I'll have one left over for a cushion/bag/whatever. The first two have been trimmed & the second two still need their corners trimming.

Next is an update on the Lizzie*Kate SAL that I've joined at the Lizzie Kate Lovers blog. It was supposed to be started some time ago but when I forgot to take it on holiday as a new start it kind of got left behind in more ways than one. Anyway I've started it now & here is my progress, allbeit not much! It's Lizzie*Kates Boo Club, a nice long narrow design, I can't wait to see it grow.

I've got lots more going on at the moment, I really should take some more pictures. I'm working on a pin cushion SAL. I've signed up to a Christmas Swap which I'm really looking forward to as I love christmas. I've paid to do a 4 day quilt class in Oct/Nov & I've even bought all the fabric for it from a shop that was closing down. Real bargain there as she was selling all fabrics at £6 a metre... I could have easily spent hundreds! I'm still stitching on Peace, Love & A Cure but not enough progress to warrant a picture just yet. Also, today I had a new foot for my sewing machine arrive... hooray... it should enable me to get to grips with free machine quilting, something that I'd love to do but have never tried. I can't wait to play with it as soon as the twins are in bed.

Happy stitching :-)
