Have I been quilting?

I was told the lights have not been on in my sewing room lately.
I think I have made up for it.

This very cute bears quilt has gone back to T for her grand daughter. A totally crappy picture that does not do this lovely quilt justice.
 This is a quilt made by Newton craft group, finally finished, a pink one is on the machine waiting for quilting tomorrow

and this is going back to D tomorrow. I love batiks. She chose a swirly panto.

Sadly I didn't get a photo of a quilt I did for Chris, I hope I will see it again sometime and there are photos of four more on my camera for next time.

They are breeding like ....

...rabbits, well, more like Easter bunnies.

Easter bunny gift bags to be precise. Lovely little project enjoyed by some of my Newton villlage craft group, just waiting to be filled with little gifts or sweets for Easter.
The blog I took this from is here but I lined mine.

We also managed to persuade a couple of our knitting ladies to put down their needles in favour of a little sewing. These are knitting pinies which have a large pocket to hold a ball of wool instead of chasing it round the floor. They have proved very popular and we have had orders for a couple already. I have found mine useful for holding my mobile phone when I am quilting and listening to books on audible with my headphones on ( I am scolded for tucking my phone in my bra). We were asked for a gardening version too.
There has been a little quilting going on, although not as much progress as I would like and spring cleaning in the kitchen, bleugh.
Back to sewing.
