3 Finishes

I see that this blog has not been posted on for a while - a whole year in fact so here we go.

I have completed 3 finishes of my UFO list in the last few months.

A stitchery of Brutus designed by Bronwyn Hayes that I finally turned into a cushion

A Christmas stitchery called 'Santas Joy' a design by Natalie Bird

And another small Santa stitchery I had started a couple of years ago and just needed finishing from a pattern of Nikki Tervos, which is where I got the buttons from too.

August - Susan Oh2Sew

This one is called Donna's Dreaming - designed by Donna Elkington who owned a patchwork shop in Brisbane.
I think I started it in 2003...finally got it quilted last month and binding on this month.
I do love the border on this one.

June Finish - Susan Oh2Sew

Back in 2011 I took a series of classes designed to make use of the decorative stitches on my sewing machine and to teach various applique methods.
I had a wonderful time playing with threads and fabrics.  I learnt Bobbin work, did some cording, used ric rac.  As is often the case I have changed the original design......

and here is the bobbin work.

Happy Sewing to find a July project...which one . . .???

June Finish

I am over the moon with this finish! 
I started this quilt years ago and to have it finished is such a wonderful feeling of satisfaction. 
All the hexies are sewn together by hand. Every piece of fabric is from past projects or been given to me over the years so it is full of memories. 
It is rather large as I wanted it to fit my queen size bed and hang over the four sides as well. 
So happy I can cross this off my list.

May Finish - Susan Oh 2 Sew

Just a small finish for me this this month..and not a long term UFO - but a finish is a finish!!

My bestie gifted me a fat quarter of beautiful gold fabric with houses last year - she knows I have a thing for houses...I started to put it together in February on retreat but didn't get very far....

It's not specifically Christmas but the gold means I will probably use it at Christmas time.

Happy sewing everyone - lets see some more finishes!!!
