Oops, I'm late to the party, as usual, so much I want to do at the moment!
Anyway, I am linking to Amanda Jean's "Crazy Mom Quilts" for Finish It Up Friday ..... Here!
I have two small finishes to share this week:
And for my second finish:
Earlier this week we had a visit from a friend we hadn't seen in donkey's years, and the night before she arrived I had the crazy idea that I should make her something. So ..... I quickly stitched up a tissue cover from two of my favourite fabrics (if you are new to my blog you can read details about making tissue covers here, and the photos are a bit better there too!).
I took this picture as I finished stitching, and had meant to take one in the daylight the next morning ..... unfortunately with preparations for her imminent arrival I totally forgot!
But, back to the first finish:
I made a book holder for myself a couple of years ago, and recently DH asked if I could make one for him.
More nighttime stitching .....
There was cutting:
And, quilting/embroidery .....
and varnishing in the "Man Cave"
that's v-a-r-n-i-s-h-i-n-g, not v-a-n-i-s-h-i-n-g as DH read it! Tee, hee!
And while I was doing my photo shoot both our little helpers wanted to be involved!
However, Tom is one very stubborn but lovable cat, and he just would NOT look round!

Oh dear, I see from these photos our poor garden bench is in definite need of a couple of coats of something! Oh well, a job for another day!
Do pop over to Amanda Jean's to see what others have finished this week, and I know you will especially love to see Amanda Jean's gorgeous bag!
So ..... what to stitch next?
Well I think I'm back to making Mini Sewing Kits. What about you, what are you making?
I look forward to hearing from you!
