Free house and working on WIPs

I'm busy sewing and I have the house to myself, I'm going to be brief so I can get back to it!!

The 'you pick' giveaway is still open so make sure you enter if you haven't already :)


- Pinwheels in the Forest quilt

- Tutorial for cube pincushion and baby blocks

I've also finished the hand quilted baby quilt for my very dear friend. I can't show pics as I want it to be a surprise, I will be handing it to her this weekend though and getting lovely baby cuddles too! Good job I'm already pregnant or I'd be majorly broody!


- Tetris QAL. I'm not a huge fan of borders so I added three big pieces of fabric to one side - the jewels and the habitat prints really echo the tetris game. Quick and easy! Quilt top done!

- Blogger's BOM this month's tutorial is at Amy's Creative Side and I really like this one:

- How Far Will You Go? QAL - this is so fun and the two Jess' really are awesome!

St Louis Star - fabulous paper pieced pattern here

Jack in the Box blocks - great tutorial here

- Vintage Holiday QAL

- Sailor Mouth Swap, keeping this one under wraps until it's done and posted!

no progress

- Retro Flowers QAL (are you surprised?!) I will make one more so I least have a row's worth by next week. Think there's any prizes for being the slowest?! - Rose Star blocks
- All the other million projects that are in my brain!!

completed: 3
in progress: 7
new: 0

Before I leave please go and check out Rebecca's awesome charm swap! You can nab a place if you're quick and the fabrics in the Flickr group are really gorgeous. Also the people involved are all brilliant, which is nice!
