Another UFO Bites the Dust and Another Progress Report

Hi There!

Finally finished my first Inklingo project.

This cute little table topper was all hand pieced and then I decided to machine quilt it as it was too odd a shape to put on Gilbert's longarm.

I've name it "Frummie's Coffee"
and the label was sewn on this evening.

Here's a picture of the back.

It's coffee bean fabric that I picked up, while in Florida.

And here's a picture of the front of it.

Tomorrow, it will replace my 30's table topper.

Pulled out the Easy Spider Quilt.... remember that one?

Gilbert and I managed to pick out ALL the itsy, bitsy pieces of paper that I had used to make the blocks. At one point, DON'T ASK ME HOW, but while removing the paper from the back, I noticed a 5 or 6 inch gap that wasn't sewn. A HUGE slit!!!

How did THAT happen?!??

Anyhow, I was too discouraged at the time and just threw it in a corner in my sewing room.

Tonight, I pulled it out and sewed the gap. Gilbert will iron it all for me tomorrow and longarm this one!


As for the Strippy SnowBall Blocks, well, I managed to sew a few more "frames" and now have 7 twelve inch snowballs finished. I hope to finish off the last 5 tomorrow evening.

Don't they kinda look like jewels?!??


And finally, here's one of the last garden flower hangers that I made. I think I've made 4, in all... but I'm not considering them completely done 'cause I need to add "hangers" on them. Not looking forward to that, but I'll keep you posted when it gets done.

That's about it for show and tell.

Hope you have a Fantastic Friday!
