It’s been another busy week round the Thistle Patch. Heads have been stuffed, bags have been made, quilt tops finished and quilt blocks started. There have also been meetings with fellow quilters, new projects for others agreed to, oh, and a whole new project of my own that I’m starting next week that’s entirely unrelated to sewing (I’ll tell you more about that on Monday). Oh, and remember how I said I had this whole upcoming long weekend to myself? Err, yeah, I forgot I had a screen printing class Saturday/Sunday so I have Monday to myself. The following weekend though is really mine all mine (for now ;o) )
Finishes This Week:
I turned this block into a messenger bag for the Practically Paper Piecing blog hop, check back on Friday to see what I did with it.
In Progress This Week:
My secret quilt top is done, here’s a sneak peek to tide you over:

Oh man. I completely forgot about the Texting While Sewing blocks.
I wonder if I'll have time to fit one in.
I saw the frog earlier…and I am glad to see him again…he is adorable peeping through!!!!
Snot fair at all,
Last night I got a bear horror show so I thought "Wednesday's bound to be safe," but no. SIgn in, have a look and "Eek, it's that bodyless bear's head with no ears and pins in it's eyes. It's enough to get me wibbling again!
I think Jack and the clan should be packing their bags with dangerous people like you around. So there.
that is the most perfect frog heart i have ever seen. i love him!
Love that head, full of character already.
What a great variety of projects…one to suit any mood you're in!
Oh my that secret quilt top is just stunning, LOVE!
Give the head a body. It is looking lost and sad without one. Those eyes are getting to me!!
That bear looks alive already……..
Still haven't finished my texty block.
Cute bear head…he really needs a mouth (and a body !)
And I love the string block for the messenger bag …cant wait to see the finished article.
Looks like you had a productive week.
So much done! wow. Glad you got the messenger bag done, that must've been a satisfying tick on the list 🙂
Arghhh I am so going to go get inspired by you to make a teddy soon.
Great makes – espesh those amazing paper pieced blocks
The comments about the bear are soo funny! He could be in costume as the bodiless bearsman! =D
I'm excited to see what that little foggy will turn into. 🙂
Why's the secret quilt top so secret? I do love the Prince Charming fabric, though!
Love that frog! Hmmm….what will he be part of? Does he have friends? I hope so!
All your projects look great. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday.
Hmm, there are three words there that scare me, but I won't say which in case I'm wrong and give you ideas..
Love the sneak peeks and can't wait to see more 🙂
Your middle name should be "busy bee". You have so many lovely projects in the works
