March WOOFA ....

.... I have a finish!!!   yay!!!!

I finished my Farmers Wife Quilt - finished at approx 60" square, 61 blocks

My Farmers Wife Quilt


I am very pleased with the way it turned out :)  I used a mixed selection of fabrics in tonings & colours that I like :)  Mostly Fat Quarters and most collected over a 12 month period.  The backing heart fabric was a great find at a Market  :) 

My Farmers Wife Quilt - quilting


Quilting was done on a vintage domestic Janome - but there was a casualty :(


Partway through adding the binding, there was a metalic sound, then a sort of a clicking that didn't sound good :(  I opened the bobbin drawer and that little curved piece of metal was lying on the bottom - I don't know where it came from :(  (thanks to the internet, I was able to determine that little sliver of metal has come off the bobbin case - not sure it can be 'fixed' but I have another bobbin case, so I can continue using the Janome :) )

I love the binding, Kansas Troubles by Moda.

Many thanks to the lovely Cheryll for hosting WOOFA :) 
I am newly motivated to get onto the next UFO!

FNwF yay!!!!

I finally got my act together and did some Friday Night with Friends Sewing :)

I have given up on making my Farmer's Wife quilt a King size quilt - we haven't even bought the new king size bed yet, and it may be a while until that happens.  So ....... I need a new quilt to snuggle under while watching TV, so this is going to be it!

... and because it is a long weekend here in Adelaide, I spent Friday Night doing a bit of 'un-sewing' so that the quilt will now be a 6 x 6 layout, on Saturday I rearranged the setting triangles, then Sunday I added another row ....  wooo hooo !!  progress at last.


Many thanks to Cheryll for the FNwF sign-ups and for the WOOFA challenge - that's one project on my WOOFA list closer to being finished!

And because I was on a roll, I did some 'mindless' piecing and made up a scrappy block

February WOOFA ........

... is a fail :(

What with various camera club things, 60th birthdays, weddings, family get togethers and my cousin visiting from UK, my time in the sewing room this month was non-existent, other than to iron some clothes LOL


Here is Sue feeding a kangaroo at Cleland Wildlife Park


Here we are, we hadn't seen each other since about 1985 - it was such a short visit and was over before we knew it :(
