Lots of finishes

My weekend has been full of sewing, I have been finishing off projects and of course starting new ones. I joined a fantastic journal cover swap with the lovely Cheryl, who organises lots of different swaps. I received an e-mail from the lady I made this journal cover for and she loved it, I was so pleased. Thanks Sisbabe, you made my day. My journal cover hasn't arrived yet but I'll be sure to share a photo as soon as it does.

I even found a red spotty pen at the newsagents which matched it beautifully.



I finally got around to making a pillow to match my half square triangle quilt. I'm so happy with both projects, the pillow just makes the set look so cozy.





I have been making my own labels to put on my projects, I thought these would be good to add on to projects that I make for gifts and swaps. Of course I had to add my own little touch to this pillow. I thought these tags were a great idea. I printed them on the computer using a fabric sheet through the printer.







I also finished my 3rd block of Sunshine frolics, I am really enjoying these stitcheries. They are so pretty mixed with the fig tree fabrics.










Its been such a busy day, now its time to cook dinner and relax a bit.

I hope you found some sewing time today.

The journal cover is darling and I love your HST quilt. How big are the HSTs in the quilt? I started saving HSTs for the purpose of making a quilt some day, but don't have very many. The stitchery of the goose in the bath tub is so cute! Can't wait to see the whole quilt!

Those labels are a great idea & look so professional. I love pillows to match quilts, you see them a lot in US mags but not so much in aussie ones. Well done. I'd be happy with your journal swap pressie! My swap pressie for someone special is finished & in the mail this week ;) Tracee xx

I love the HST quilt and pillow - I have a hankering to make one myself (when I've finished all those pesky outstanding projects, that is!)
I love the labels too - what did you use to make them?
