And the results are in . . .

I hope everyone had a productive Friday night sewing and stitching :) Thank you Wendy for being such a gracious hostess. I spent some time this morning checking out what everyone was up to - so many wonderful projects being done.

My Friday night started Friday morning . . . early . . . about 6 a.m. :)

I worked on my Tilda quilt.

I'm stuck on the binding. Having to decide on a color. Worst case, I'll use the border fabric for the binding - I have more :) And in an effort to use what I have and not purchase new, I think that's exactly what I'm going to do. It feels so good to be this close to a finish !

I added a few more rub-ons on the headboard of the doll cradle. I now, finally, consider it finished.

Saturdays aren't very productive on the crafting front due to family obligations, so I try to do things that I can walk away from during the day. Evenings are pretty much mine, except reviewing the Sunday School lesson.  

My afternoon project was inspired by a package I recieved in the mail . . .

I received these lovely 9-patches from Susan.  Thank you, Susan. I absolutely love them.  I can't wait until I've collected enough to begin a quilt.

So to that end, I worked on my own 9-patches. I have several more to finish for the swap.

These are leftovers from a couple of different projects, the most recent being my Tilda quilt :)
Not to worry, I won't be sending pink to a certain someone :)

I also managed to make some time to draw off five of the six Christmas Stitch-A-Long patterns from the lovely Wendy

My goal is to finish one each day and maybe finish the runner next weekend.

Hope this Saturday has been relaxing and productive for all of you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a productive weekend.

Your Tilda quilt looks great. Using the border fabric will look good.
