This little cutie came to live with us a few weeks ago when my middle son come back home. Sadly for Freddy she has been made feel very unwelcome by the 2 resident cats Tabatha and Sooty. Its like world war 3 poor Freddy can not come into a room without hissing and growling from the other 2.

Haven't had time for any quilting but thats changing have to finish a photo quilt for my dad's 80th he was 80 last week, but we are not seeing them till this weekend.

Friday Flaunt

One of the online groups I belong to has a Friday Flaunt to show what you have been up to during the week. So I will see how I go after having to pack up my quilting room as its turned back into a bedroom. I probably have enough fabric for a year of flaunting.
The TV programme packed to the rafters has nothing on us.

Anyway this was an easy quilt using Kaffe Fassett blues made for friend who has decided to try apartment living she says she is going to read in the afternoons so I thought she needs a quilt to snuggle up with too. And I quilted it myself on a friends long arm machine this is my first go on her machine certainly a lot to remember. I will have forgotten what to do the next time I want to use the machine

Since I had to be very restrained while away I couldn't resist these patterns both by Bronwyn Hayes from I also signed up for the Global Christmas Shop Fiona is running.

I think a lot of my friends will be getting the hot pads for xmas.

And I have been eyeing up this BOM for a while. Fiona offers this as a pattern only BOM so means I can use my stash for fabric. (Maybe)
