Pincushion and Baby Quilt

I finished Masie's Pincushion for August, my ONLY finish for that month!
It was for JessieGirls birthday last week and she loved it!
Just to update, the Dr at emergancy does have to eat his hat as there is a fracture in my foot as well as a piece of bone chipped off that is attatched to a tendon. I have another two weeks on crutches then am back to the physio.
This week I stitched the binding down on an already quilted baby quilt, such a wonderful feeling to get a quilt finished.

The quilt was made from Fig Tree Quilts charms and I did a dissapearing ninepatch.
Quilted it in the ditch then quilted some not quite circles on some of the larger squares in the quilt. Gorgeous colours.....

I too am sorry to hear about your foot. :( It's a shame that the Dr was wrong. Would have been nice for it to be less serious. Hope the physio is helping. That quilt is gorgeous! Beautiful colours....! The pincushion - so sweet! I'm loving wool applique! Such a nice medium to work in!

Kerry said...

Love your latest finishes! I'm yet to play with wool. Every time I think to look for a kit when I'm shopping, it's not something the shop I'm in carries. Something to look forward to for one day! Hope your foot doesn't affect your sewing ability too much for too long.

Lynda said...

They are both really lovely Bec. I hope your doctor doesn't choke.

Anita said...

Love the pin cushion, the baby quilt is just adorable, absolutely beautiful.
Do they need to operate to fix your foot? I had something similar with my big toe and they had to go in and take the chip out and reattach the tendon. I hope all goes well :O)Carin
