Two's company

This is what my little craft room looks like when a pal comes to visit......




very industrious or maybe just messy!!

Kitty arrived on Wednesday evening and since then we've been holed up in here sewing up a storm.    Actually she's the one making all the progress as I've spent the whole day today trying to locate my brains.  Nothing new there!

She's busy right now stitching the binding on this....




I'm in love with it and have to say it looks even better in 'real' life.  I'm going to have to get a close up of it when she's finished.

Me..... I managed to do a bit of quilting on this.....



Just a bit of quilt in the ditch and some straight lines.  I'm working up to the scary bit... free motion!  I really have got to practise more.

I've also been absorbed in this


I finally started piecing the fist block of the mystery block of the month included in Vignette. 

I love Leanne Beasley's patterns.  So much so that I've also joined Vignette In Stitches a lovely group of stitchers making the mystery quilt from her gorgeous new magazine.

This is the first time I've sewn in public.... hope I'm up to the challenge.
Must go..... I can smell food!!

Till next time
Josie
