Wow I have not posted any sewing things for a while so I thought I better update what I have been doing. Mostly it has been swap items, but there are a couple of things I made for me.
As part of QBSA I do have some blocks I just do not get right, so I remake the block. I did not know what to do with a couple of the completed ones, then thought oneday, what about cushions. So here a couple, sort of demolished shapewise already thanks to Mr 14yrs using them for wrestling moves...lol
Talking about QBSA here are a few blocks sent and received.
First up is the June swap. Jan asked for 2"sqaures surrounded by a plain 2 1/2" border, so hoping this was ok.

She sent me my requested Pinwheel Block

and she also sent me this lovely Mug Mat

Being onto it this month I have already made Cathy her block. She asked for the Churn Dash Block in black and white, with a dash of red.

I also received Vals April block, again in the Pinwheel.

Then over at Clare's Craftroom on Facebook she held a pincushion swap. I was lucky enough to receive this lovely mushroom pincusion from Thanyalak in Thailand
|Received from Thanyalak|
And I sent her this one.

I also received my Kitchen swap item from the recent swap over at Our Craft Forum. Some tea, a mug wrap, a mug rug and a small calender.

Then for the Handmade Gift Exchange I made for my partner these coasters in what are hopefully suitable colours. Hopefully they arrive in the next couple of weeks.
Well that's all for now.
