Round Robin Tuesday

Two cards where I was the middle person to work on the card.

And yet another baby quilt...

This one is for a friend from work, who I haven't seen in ages because of lockdown, but babies won't wait for these things, so she (or he) is going to come anyway...  Last quilt for a while as the next baby on the horizon isn't due until September. Whew!

Round Robin Friday

Three sets here where I was the last person to add something to the card - two people worked on it before me, then I had to find a way to finish it off.

Another baby quilt

Apparently, baby quilts are like buses: none for ages, then loads come along all at once.  This one is for my nephew and his wife in Australia, who are having a baby boy in July - their first baby. Very exciting!

Round Robin Tuesday

Three sets of round robin cards where I was the third person to work on the card and thereby finish it off.

A pair of baby quilts...

...for a pair of babies - my neighbours were due to have twins in July - identical boys, but the date has been moved forward to this past Friday.  I resisted the temptation to make identical quilts. Partly, I didn't have enough fabric anyway, partly, I don't really go in for that sort of thing.  These were pieced by me, longarm quilted by Lana Dragicevich, who is another neighbour and a mutual friend, then bound by me.

Round Robin Friday

Three sets here where I made a background/starter card and then sent them out into the world to be worked on. These are often the most fun to get back because of what direction they take - sometimes it's quite expected, but sometimes, especially if the background is quite non-committal, they can be quite a surprise.

Buddy card Tuesday

So here are three sets of cards which are "buddy cards"  - as you might guess from the name, two people work on them - one starts and the other finishes. 

These have a bit more freedom than round robin cards with three players, especially if the person who starts them doesn't fill the card up much!

Round robin Friday

Three more sets where I was the middle person to work on the card - not sure why I don't have a scan of the first stage of the final cards, but sometimes these things go astray.

Cross Stitch Update

So, it's not as though I needed another project, but I did pick up a rather large holiday themed Cross Stitch recently, and have made a good start on it. It won't be done for Christmas this year, but I hope to keep making progress. As well as stitching more on (and finishing) the Alice in Wonderland piece.

Round Robin Tuesday

Two more sets of round robin cards where I was the second person to work on the card - again, I receive a background/starter and then add something and send it along to a third person. Sometimes this can be really challenging!
