Three weekends ago...

OK, so it's been a while since my last post.
Basically, I haven't been home much, especially on weekends. Away three out of the last four weekends and away again tomorrow.
The good news, I have had time to sew while I have been away.
Rather than bore you with an extremly long post. I will update you one weekend at a time. 
So...three weekends ago my parents visited and we had a lovely, quiet catch up with them. Mum and I got to do some sewing. I made this quilt to send to Cheryll. Cheryll organises the Blankets of Love. This is a very thoughtful idea of Cheryll's that supports families at a very sad time in their lives.
While quilting this I learnt how to use one of the gadgets that came with my machine. I really like how you can quilt in straight lines without marking them.
My mum made this cute bear for my nephew. She also crocheted a rug in some lovely earthy tones in a cool chevron pattern...that I forgot to take a photo of...sorry.
Next installment coming soon.
Enjoy your weekend.
