Searching The Stash

 Not a lot of quilting activity happening here for most of the week as paid work took up most of my time. When I wasn't working I was catching up on sleep. Today I finally had time for more finishes and time to blog.
 I quilted and bound 3 quilts and they will be shown on my other blog at Oz Comfort Quilts. I searched the stash and found some tartan fabric which was an ideal backing for 2 of the tartan quilts that Gina (Vic) has sent and they will be perfect for boys/men.
 I finished crocheting a large blanket for DH as he likes to take a nap on the couch and none of the quilts were long enough. I may still have to make him another longer quilt as he's not sure it's warm enough for him. I've been buying variegated yarn and crocheting whenever I have spare time so I also have another blanket that I'm finishing off to donate.
  I also received more lovely string pieced blocks from Kaite M. (NSW) and have joined them together with some others I've received so they are now a finished quilt (shown on my other blog). I also made some backings for more tops I need to quilt and donate as well as making a nut loaf, chocolate slice, yoghurt and a roast chicken with roast vegetables for our evening meal.
 The postman also brought a lovely baby beanie made by Ruth Crocombe and all the doinations will bring some warmth for this winter.
Many thanks, Jan Mac

Those variegated yarns come up so well crocheted into squares and then joined by the black yarn. Love it!
