almost finished!

Just taking a break from my Broken Glass blocks today because I'm a bit overdue with a gift! 
A friend of the family had a wee baby boy a couple of weeks ago & what does every newborn need? a little quilt of course!   I like to have a couple of small quilts here in the " almost finished" pile, just needing the quilting done and/or binding put on. She had popped in to visit a few weeks before baby came & picked out a quilt she liked, one I made ages ago & was almost, almost finished!!   So today I've sewn on the binding & will sit tonight & handsew the back of it down.

And remember these scarves ?

Well one easter rabbit has been made & went straight away to it's new home! 
I had an "Olive" day yesterday & we set about making a rabbit together! 
Olive chose the red scarf...lovely! 
I sewed & she stuffed!! 
(you can imagine the mess....small bits of white pillow stuffing all around the sewing room!!!)  But we had a lot of fun & I just managed to get a pic before she & rabbit went home!

Linking up with Lee @ WIP Wednesday later on today.
