Show and tell Monday

The St M's quilters were depleted from three to two this morning and only I managed to produce a couple of finishes to show.  It's that time of year when getting organised for Christmas eats into precious sewing time and some finishes just can't be shown or it would spoil the surprise!!
But here are a couple of finishes that it's safe to put up.


A Christmas table runner.


Place mat and mug rug!

I've not been able to crack on with my bright diamonds quilt as I need to find just the right fabric for the border.  I've been tempted to buy on line but it has so many strong colours and patterns that whatever I choose will have to be auditioned up against what I've pieced so far or I could end up making a costly mistake. This purchase will definitely have to be made in person at a quilt shop but goodness knows when that will be.

My darling little granddaughter, Mimi is obsessed with ducks and Sam managed to find this fabulous fabric for me.


Will be making a shopping trolley padded seat for her - I can already hear her quacking around the supermarket!!!

Happy Monday stitching.    - Jacky O
