Bits and Pieces...

It has been cold and wet here yesterday a good day to stay inside and sew...
yesterday I started turning these strips
 into rows for quilts for Aussie Heroes but the wont be made into quilt tops until I have added some applique to the rows and joined them together... I am hoping to have maybe three quilts... and I am not sure when I will have them all finished as I am off to Perth on Monday to spend two weeks with my son while he recovers from a knee re-construction..
 these two pot holders are from left over blocks from other Aussie Hero quilts
and these mug rugs are also left over blocks from past Aussie Hero quilts
trying to used up some of the bits and pieces around my sewing room... less to pack up when the day comes to start packing for real...
OH and I won a give away woohoo photo's soon...

    hope your son gets better soon Tarnyia and what a lovely thing you are doing with your fabric.xx

  2. Wishing your son a quick recovery and be sure to take along your hand sewing.
    Great way of using your scrap fabrics.

  3. Good on you Tarnyia using leftover fabrics in that way. Love the mug rugs too. All the best for your son, yes indeed take some hand stitching or knitting... or should I say, I hope you go ok with your son's surgery?! lol

  4. Sending good thought to your son. Hopefully all goes smoothly! Love the look of the red and blue. Great combination!

  5. I know all will be well in Perth with the lad and think of all the shopping at those couple of great thread/textile shops ion Perth. Yum yum ..... xxxxx
