A bit of sewing

Last night was Friday Night Sew-In with Bobbi and Heidi and I did a spot of sewing.

I finished block six of Henrietta Whiskers, a lovely free project from Anne Sutton at Bunny Hill. I love Anne's designs.

I made another block for my Red Star quilt.

On Thursday night I put the binding on this little bassinet quilt and its matching cot quilt.  My lovely son Sam and his beautiful wife, Adrienne are expecting a baby sometime in the next few days.  The nursery is decorated with a train theme - no surprise to anyone who knows Sam.

And on Friday the postie brought this lovely block from Sylvia.  Thank you so much Sylvia.  I love it. You can see what others have been exchanging HERE as part of
