My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

Fresh Sewing Day October gone!

Ok this is the first time I have linked up with Lynne and the gang at Lily's quilts for fresh sewing day.  I have to share what I have achieved over the month of October!  Unusually for me, quite a lot.  I set up my etsy shop and started making for other people.

 Embroidering names for the first time for Christmas stockings!  I love the look of them.

I finished this table runner.  I love the colours, the prints and the hand quilting and the binding!
 More embroidery practise.  Little snowflakes.
 A Christmas stocking for my shop.  I love the pinwheel
block and I would just love to put a pair of these
on my feet! So cosy.

 A few quilt blocks for Judith and her lovely friends for the Bee Blessed bee.
 A sneak peek at an order for a friend I received. I just love the gingerbread fabric and the dots! I am loving making these too.
A small fabric order to add to my stash and get making some more lovely items.

I am NEVER this busy with sewing normally so it is nice to have some items to share with you.  Going to look at what all you other lovely people have been up to!
Bye for now and we will see what November holds.
