Small Finishes & Klosjes

Well my Klosjes report for the week is a big fat 0.  This is as far as I got, pulling all the fabric out and then putting it all away.  I don't know where the week has gone, maybe the long weekend had something to do with it because I didn't know what each day was last week.  I did know Wednesday though because I was sulking at home whilst Jan and Michelle were in Sydney.  I was ok until they sent me pics from their phones visiting Annie Downs' stand!

I have had a couple of small finishes though.  I bought this pattern in April at the Quilt convention and finally finished it.  It is stuffed with crushed walnut shells and feels divine.

I also quilted and bound this little quilt, even put a label on the back!  I made the top over Christmas and was sick of it lying around not being used.


I also quilted and bound this little one.  I had a bit of trouble with deciding how to quilt it but it's finished and I'm happy.

And lastly, here is my little man.  All fluffy and happy - not so tomorrow, he has a date at the groomers.

Your little quilts are lovely. You should have a look at the Small Quilt Talk group on Yahoo if you like little quilts. Don't be so sad you missed out on Sydney, you did win a prize!
Can you tell me about the walnut shells? I believe they sharpen well.
Your little puppy is very cute. Was he posing for the photo?

I hope you get to the show next year and I get to meet you. Shame you couldn't bring Buddy though cause I'd just love to meet him too. You did good things in the weekend, love the finishes and the pincushion.

That Buddy is so photogenic... agh, just want to give him a big squeeze!
I Just adore your mini quilts! How incredibly gorgeous... well, done!
OH, Sue-Anne that header to your Blog is GENIUS!
And re: Klosjes< I have been neglecting mine, too, but I don't think they mind so much! (at least that's what I keep telling myself... :)
By the way, that pincushion looks amazing! I can imagine it has a nice weight to it?

Karen said...

Looks to me like you have been very busy. Some wonderful finishes that would look good at my house! The spool block on the top of the pile is one that I like (the red & off-white) Looks interesting.

Brandie said...

Buddy will enjoy the groomers as much as PugsLee enjoyed her bath. Little darlings!

Sue said...

Where on earth do you buy crushed walnut shells. I have tried to buy it here in the UK as I know it would be perfect for stuffing pincushions. I love yours and I know Buddy will feel much better after a wash and brush up.
Really like the little quilt tooooooo.

Barb said...

I love all your small finishes - the little quilt is so simple and so great! do we ever tire of red and white. The dolls and pillows look great there! and I really love the little doll quilt!

Buddy is too cute! My guy is hiding from the camera after his date last week with the groomer. Yikes! We won't be calling her again. LOL Your quilt finishes are too cute, and I love the pillow! There's always next week for the klojses. :)
