Bits - N - Pieces

I trialled a "new" 10.5 inch  leaders & enders project this week.
It's still using up scraps... but this time I'll finish with a "wonky hexie" block.

Next time though... I'll make the centre hexie a lot larger...
* * * * *

I made 9, three layers with nose clamp, "face masks" over the last few days too.
You can find the pattern I used HeRe...
.
I found it EaSY to make... & it FiTS very well 
& I've read that quite a few ladies are using the same pattern... so it's very popular.

* * * * *

As we are all still in "stay-at-home" mode because of the return of this dreaded Covid-19 virus & while going through patterns, I came across 3... shown below... 
which have NeVeR been used... & thought if anyone would like one of them, 
I'll mail it to you.  It might be a simple project to fill in some time.
Sorry... but due to restrictions I will mail to Australian postal address' only.
One is from Designs By Fee... called "Stitchers Keeper" - a sewing wallet... 


another is an old Chook Shed pattern called "Anne loves Andy".

And the last one is from Vickie Knight called "Miss Millie & the Easter Bunny".

so... if you would like to make any of the above patterns... just leave a comment.

A FNwF FiNisH

Another QAYG charity "string" quilt is ready to be donated.
This one is in a "rainbow" layout... which I think looks really pretty.
I finished sewing the binding to the quilt last night at...
Friday Night with Friends.

The quilt measures 46 inch x 64 inch.

How did you go last night at FNwF? 
I'll be over later to see what you worked on.

WOOFA in JuLy

Because I've been away this month... I have to be content with only a little bit of progress on this months project.

My "spools" quilt (started Jan 2019) has had 8 different coloured spools added.
Not a lot of improvement BuT as I always say...
ANY progress is GOOD progress.

Have you completed a project this month ?
If you have... why not show us.
Perhaps ... like me... you've progressed a UFO...
That's great too... so let us enjoy the journey with you.

Simply link up below & we'll come over for a visit.
