flimsies, minis, and pinnies.....

A little catch up on the latest sewing adventures....
A flimsy completed over the last couple of days - more to come on this one later in the month.....

Minis have been sent and received - thanks once again to amazing Swap Mama Cheryll!
this is the gorgeous mini I received from Sisbabe Stitches, and I love it.  It is very hard to see, but all the seams are sewn over in lovely decorative stitches.  And I love the saying; the first time I read it, I felt like I could relate!

And this is the mini I made and sent.  I won't reveal to who it was sent, as I know they have not been able to check their mail over the last week or two, but hopefully it is there waiting for them when they can.....
Don't these thread colours just look gorgeous together?
And my first project out of my new Gail Pan book, the 'Bloom' pincushion - I love this book, I want to make everything in it!
I did sign up for FNWF with Cheryll last week, with plans to again spend it with Sue, Tracee and Marg, working on our Underground Railroad quilts.  Most annoyingly, a migraine prevailed and I was out of action. So there is some catching up there to do - more on that soon!


  1. Looks like you have been busy Tania! Your minis are so nice! Love the little pincushion too!

  2. those borders frame your mini so beautifully, great job!!
    LOVE your minis sent and received, they are so wonderful and your new pin cushion is very cute

    Hope that migraine doesn't appear again to spoil your week/
