Friday night/weekend sewing

Well, thanks to Wendy I've finally finished one block of my Gossip in the garden quilt...yeah. I completed the the dresden plates from my last post, so it's on to the next two!

I've also been having fun with with my clam shells...I'm only one row away from having a panel of clam shells for the back of my project case (see last post).

Today I started playing around with background and applique fabrics for the front, and found some beautiful woolen felts that will be perfect for the roof... I picked these up from Hatched and Patched at the Sydney show the year before last...I knew I 'needed' them...

I can't wait to have it all ready to go...I just love the hand stitching that follows.

Thanks Wendy for the virtual sew-in. I'm off to have a look at what others have been up to.
