Catch Up Saturday

We've had sunshine today yeahhhhhh, after 4 solid days of torrential rain, it tried to rain earlier but the sunshine came back. Thankfully we haven't been subjected to the awful flooding some people have.

Why not pop on over to Lily's Quilts here  and showcase what you've been working on and visit others to see their creations.

Still on enforced rest I've not got a lot of quilting done  but have managed some. I've been able to finish off some socks I had on my needles,

I  made a new bed for the munchkins who are now not happy there isn't room on it for all of them so need to make a couple more. Nemo won first dibs lol
I managed to get another row added to this quilt which is now ready for the border and backing.

I love the autumnal colours in this

I treated myself this week to this little treasure,

 I need to bite the bullet and get some FMQ under my belt. I've started reading it and I'm enjoying it no complicated destructions as my grandson used to say :) Now it's time to dive in.

I've met some lovely new friends through Vicki's Grow Your Blog party and hope to do the same with this sharing. I love reading about the amazing talent out there.

Enjoy your weekend

Love the socks Peg and nice quilts too.
Interested to hear what you think of the FMQ book and if you'd recommend it?
Lovely pic of you and your daughter.

I'm hopping around from Lily's Quilts today, too. I keep seeing your name in the comments everywhere I go, so took a shortcut here (by clicking on your name) to say hello. So. Hello! Good luck with your free motion quilting. It's a bit scary at first, but with lots of practice it becomes soo much easier. Jump right in! If you haven't heard of Leah Day, you need to check out her blog. She has hundreds of video tutorials featuring different fmq designs. Great resource!
