Slow Stitching Sunday

Some finishes

I've been busy completing some hand projects started earlier in the year. 
A spring basket table topper in wool applique. I enjoyed using a lighter background this time rather than the traditional dark.

A close up of the flower-filled basket.

This wool applique geranium table mat is intended for my mum for Christmas.

I added extra petals - these were all very tiny- smaller than the end of my pinky finger- and a challenge to cut out- but the result quite pleasing in the end. Rather than french knots for the flower centers, a glass bead was sewn on. Below is a closer look at the petals and beads. Both table toppers are designs by Primitive Gatherings.

You may remember from last spring this block I made from a leftover panel.

Chippy has some friends now! The block has grown into a considerably larger quilt top than intended - big enough for a twin size bed! I am working on the back which is almost complete. To make room for more flannels, I have been using my leftover chunks. I think there will end up being almost as much work in the back as in the front!

I have a lot more on the go but I will save it for next time! 

Today I'm linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching!
 Hope you all have a great day!
