Babushka Wednesday 2

I may add some lace to this one at a later date or maybe some loopy embroidery around the scarf.

Babushka Wednesday 1

I started well but like quite a few things its become a UFO.  All but one block is finished but then DD who collects Babushka and who its being made for said she wasn't keen on the border that was to go round it.   Its not that I'm blaming her for encouraging another UFO as I really didn't like it myself but I was all geared up for that border so each week you will see a block and by the time I get to number 10 it may be made and you never know I may even of started the border. I just have to plan it.   This was a  BOM from Angies Bits and Pieces in 2010

Scrap flowers to be quilted

Scrap flowers
Flowers were paper pieced then appliqued onto the machine pieced background.   Not sure when it will get quilted, maybe next year.

Poor blog

Its so sadly neglected, I don't seem to of learned any shortcuts except how to schedule, as you have seen by the snowmen and I would much prefer to sew then write about what I've done.  But I've just signed up for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project - 2012 so it may become a little more interesting then snowmen, though I do love my snowmen and it was a wonderful way to see them through the year while they lay in there box waiting for Xmas to be unpacked again, but they are coming to an end except for one I found in an op shop and another my DD bought me so its just as well there are new happenings on the horizon.
