Project Roundup

It is Christmas Eve here in Australia and we have a beautiful bright and sunny morning here in Devonport.

Yesterday our weekly sewing group had a little more special afternoon tea. In keeping with our quilting/embroidery group and all the pinwheels we make I made some fruit mince pastry pinwheels.

For those who might like to try them I found the recipe here. I used two pastry sheets which I cut into 9 squares each. They are reasonably quick to make and look fantastic.

We also compared our progress on Clue 4 of the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter.

You can catch up with what others are doing at Bonnie's link up here.

Just a reminder if you need a quick to stitch gift for a quilter or a sewer check out my popular scissor case tutorials that I revisited last post

You might also like to make the sewing machine needle organizer which can be found here

or the cup, mug, tin organizer which can be found here. I have my mug organizer on my sewing bench all the time.

Blocks 3 and 4 have been sent out in the BFC Anniversary BOM. We now have 225 people receiving these free lessons

I have also stitched the block together for Row 1.
