It’s been a pretty productive week sewing wise round here, with a few finishes and bunch of works in progress.  I’m slowly working my way through my ‘To Do’ list for the next few weeks, and on Saturday I finally get to take my first lesson on my machine – I’m hoping to learn all about the quilting feet (as I seem to have a ridiculously large collection that came with the machine) and how FMQ works on it… 

Finishes This Week: 

I got my FTLOS swap items done and in the post, but you can read all about them tomorrow. 

I got my mini quilt done for Jennifer’s Modern Mini Challenge (BTW, the finalists have been listed, so pop on over to vote for your favourite ones in both the mug rug and mini quilt sections) 

I got block 4 done for FPPFTT, which you can see on Friday (and which also happens to be my February Sew Bee Joyful block, gotta love a bit of multi-tasking!) 

In Progress This Week: 

I got the last 2 blocks of my SHQ QAL done, so here are all the blocks now on my design wall.  I’m hoping to get it sashed and bordered this week in time to enter the prize draw :o)  Then it can be on its way to Kat: 

I got my rainbow road all set up to be a bag, but I’m waiting for some monofilament thread to come through for the quilting part, as I’d like to quilt it in fairly dense lines

I’ve printed a bunch of patterns ready for this coming week, including a wee bear, the FPPFTT blocks 5 and 6 and one or two other bits and pieces 

No Progress: 

The bag.

I also got some happy mail today, my co-ordinating solids for my Echo has arrived.  Now this was posted off 3 weeks ago today, and it seems to have had quite the adventure on its way!  There’s a whole bunch of tape round it, and a stamp in a lovely foreign language…  We’ve debated at work whether it was perhaps Greek or Russian, and I think we settled on Russian, but should any of you know different, feel free to let me know!  Now the parcel itself looks perfectly in tact underneath, so no idea why it gained the tape, and it was also perfectly labelled to come to the UK, so one can only assume a few postal workers were smoking crack when they loaded the plane ;o) 

So anyway, here it all is, and I can move on with my plan, although I think it’ll be a week or two before I get to it!
