Lots Going On

Sorry I have not been around in a while to share some quilting eye candy but things have been a bit crazy around here.  For starters the boys are out of school for summer break and that always means less sewing.  We also decided to sell our house and move back to Australia so there is all that preparation going on. 

The house was listed on the market last Thursday and now I just have to keep it tidy for showings.  Paperwork and plans are under way for moving back down under so hopefully it is smooth sailing from here.

I did manage to sneak into my sewing room this week and finished up my sewing machine cover.  I have been working on it for a few months now.  Which is one of my Library Projects for the year so I can actually check off a goal.  I can't tell you how excited that makes me. :)   I left the side ties off from my version so if I get sick of it or just need to change it out, I can use it as a mini wallhanging or a table topper. 

For the back I used a vintage sheet. 

I also pieced two pillow covers and quilted them, they are for my A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for June, just need to do the back and zipper. Here is a peek. 

I also cut out a small bag for my aunt to take on her trip to Ireland in July. There are so many pieces for bags.   

I am behind on a lot of my project but hopeful to catch up but not sure if that will happen before the big move.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting.

  1. I love your sewing machine cover. It is just beautiful and the quilting is gorgeous. Good luck with the move :)

  2. I love your sewing machine cover, the black staching looks great, but your pillows cover are something!!! Great freemotion and gorgeous quilt.

  3. Good thought leaving your options open to use the machine cover in a different way in the future.Your finish makes me want to open up Fresh Quilting again, but I don't dare. I'll probably find (yet another) project I'd like to make! :)

    The FMQ on your pillow covers is awesome... I love feathers! Though I'm not brave enough to try them just yet!

  4. I love every single thin about your machine cover. The colors, the quilting and the vintage sheet! I never thought about making one like this, I think I will add to my to do list!
