2020 Wk 34 - an assortment

 A batch of assorted photos in today's post.. A friend became a grandma a few weeks ago - very early: mum and dad had hardly even told anyone she was pregnant when baby Millie arrived at 23 weeks!!!!

I just have some binding to sew and this quilt can be delivered - it will be absolutely enormous next to here and it will be a long time before she is out on an incubator and needing this but I enjoyed making it

Repeat after me "the correct response to repair requests is "I'd love to but I'm afraid I cant""!  Sigh - I wish I could remember that at the right time!  Anyway they are done now and can be delivered soon.

(They really did need new backs!)

Another repair was for Niki (I don't mind so much for a daughter - and I got to do some applique too!)

I've been back making Gingers: some duplicates to order


and one special request

And one for me: our final village trail is going to be a scarecrow trail: most people who are joining in are making life size scarecrows - I though it would be much easier to make a ginger sized, um, "ginger" scarecrow!!!

I could imagine the hair perfectly, but had to go long to cut it to size: this stage was a bit scary!

But I think it worked out fine ... the button eyes made it a bit creepy

So this is the end result!

Niki's kitty finally has a name - Penny (as in "see a penny, pick it up ...")  I though she needed a quilt too!  I found this is the 'orphans' drawer (left over from the La Pass quilt).  I rounded the edge, quilted it and backed it

And little miss Penny seems to rather like it!


  1. Penny, the pet with the poshest 'pass' quilt in town! Lucky thing! Love your scarecrow ginger - what a a great idea! And I'm sure that, in time, Millie will love her quilt. She must be awfully tiny at the moment, though, so we will send her good thoughts. xx

  2. Hope the baby is doing well. Love the scarey ging! 😁 Much better without the buttons.
