A Very Good Day

That is what today has been. I have finished my mums overnight bag she asked for earlier. I am making a move on a HUGE bedspread I foolishly promised to make for a friend. I cant see that I will ever manage to quilt it in my machine though. So option two is hand quilt it, which come to think of it might be worse!

Besides finishing the little bag I made  three 6 inch squares of crazy quilt. I've always wanted to try it out and see what its like. And I can tell you, it is very addictive!

Here are some pictures of them all. Jamie very kindly helped me pin the side panels on the BIG beadspread while he was watching the english football premier on telly so he got caught on camera.

The little overnightbag for mum. I made a pocket in this one as well. Me likes to make pockets I think...

And finally my little attempt at crazy quilting. It was so fun I could have used ALL my scraps up if I would have had enough fusible web.

My very first full sized quilt was very wonky. But Gramma told me "It's your first, so be proud of it."
I think I'd have hives by now if I had taken on a full-sized bedspread :)
And I am very amused by your self-description as a "happy little $hi*."

I don't know about having the hives but I'm not going to tell you exactly how long a time it's taken me to get to this stage of the big bedspread....
I always seem to find something more interesting to do. Thankfully I have a very understanding friend.
