WIP Wednesday - progress

I have made another 2 denim bags out of the top section of jeans. I took the two I had made previously along to a craft group that has just started up in our town. Our aim is to make things to be sold to raise money for Our Rainbow House. The women at the group were very enthusiastic about them and I may well have found a buyer for at least one if not both of them from within the group. Their encouragement was so inspiring that I came home and made another 2 this afternoon.

I have made a little progress on The Tea Shop Quilt completing a couple more of the applique blocks. I have just one to go but it has the most changes of colours on it so will take a little while. I haven't finally settled on a design for the layout but think that the one with the teashop at the centre of the quilt may well be my final one.

I got the next block in the POD challenge completed. It was a pretty straight forward one. Apparently the 5 blocks we have done are enough to complete one row on the book shelf. Before I sew them together I want to stitch titles on the books. I had better get on to that.

I have also joined the Scrapitude - Scrap in a Box Mystery quilt. I completed the first clue/step Monday night. The next clue is up but not sure when I will get 

I have Vanishing Hours back from the long armer. Now I have to decide on a binding and get it done.

Annie's quilt is still bundled up by my machine waiting for me to get back to it and get it quilted.

I have collected a couple of projects to do along the way. Someone from church has asked me to complete a banner that their late mother had started for the church. It is fairly simple. I got the two borders on it today. Now to pin it and quilt it.

I also volunteered to put together one of the charity quilts from the Blocks our Patchwork group have been working on. Today we I forgot that I had said I would make some banners for a christian group called Chrysalis. I was reminded today so had better get them done too!
