Another UFO finished - this one is called pinwheel pirouette and was made from a jelly roll(for those who dont know what a jelly roll is it is 2 1/2 inch strips of a whole fabric range all rolled up like a swiss roll)
Im going to give it to a dear friend Kerry who is having a special birthday - 45 - hope she enjoys it

Well I did the unthinkable and cleaned my sewing area up!!!
And I have sorted out my scraps into a much better system - got a heap of plastic containers (label said meat containers - about manilla folder size and about 4 inches deep) and have sorted my scraps into colours, Ive a garbage bag of scraps "left over" that I am giving to a girl starting out quilting - took ages to do but I think this system works - I needed a scrap of green the other day and went to the tub and found one.
The trick will be to keep on putting them in it as I go..........sigh......
BUT while I was cleaning/sorting etc found a bag of scraps leftover from a flannel quilt I made Mia that I had promised Megan I would make something for her from (as you do) and made up this cushion for her - didnt take long and she was very happy with it

Finally finished my beading "sampler" from the Southern Cross Quilters retreat in Bendigo last year. The class was taught by Lisa Walton - I called it "Just one more bead please" - thought it was appropriate
Ive just added a "second " photo of the beading - and hopefully a clearer one
