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

Fresh Sewing Day 

Hello!  Today my little boy turns 10 and I am also linking up with the beautiful Lynne for Fresh Sewing Day! 

Jings, 10 makes me feel old.  I mean a whole decade!!! Yikes! 

So here are some of the highlights of my August sewing.

I took part in the Big Stitch Swap and made this Dresden plate hand quilted cushion cover for my partner.

Made some bee blocks for Nicky (Bee a Brit Stingy)

 I done some hand quilting on a secret project.
And last but by no means least, my classes started again and my ladies are straight back into things!

What sewing have you been doing over the month of August? You can link up over at Lily's Quilts and read what others have been creating.
