Its a 'flimsy',rail fence cushion, threadcatcher mini quilt.horses.


 
I have finished the piecing of HSS and here it is,  threads and all. I never even took time to tidy it up a bit.  Now I have to get it quilted and embellished with some of these little guys and other Spring stuff. 
 I may not do much of that until after Christmas, as I have a few things I need done for the Festive Season. Do you realise three months from now the Celebrations will be  over for another year.......too many projects.....not enough time.
I am making a cushion for a wee friend who is 81 this week.  I don't think she is a techie, so no fear of her seeing this blog (blog? I hear her say). I have used some batiks, and have taken courage and am quilting it by machine.  I am not brave enough to even  attempt FMQ , so I printed the design on phonebook pages.  This is my first attempt at this.  I have been strictly a straight line girl until now.
 
 

Remember the threadcatcher half square triangles.  They ended up like this. A small A4 quilt on which I practiced my hand quilting (need more of that)
The hubby's project is finished. All stables painted, and indoor arena. Don't think he wants too see a paintbrush for a while.  Everything is looking fresh and new.

  This evening was lovely and mild, so we went to have a look at the finished project, and found our girls riding outdoors.  It is lovely to see them enjoying the horses.
