A few more down!

So I finally finished up Hawaiian Punch, and she's now for sale on Etsy.

This one's been languishing as an unquilted top for about 2 years, so I figured it was time to bite the bullet & get it done. I put it on the frame & made a panto of leaves & flowers, I'm fairly happy with it!

Unfortunately, my machine decided to have a hissy fit, so there are some problems with the quilting, but overall I'm happy with how it turned out.

I've also been working on some criss-cross coasters, both for gifts & to put up for sale in my Etsy shop. I started by going through my box of pre-cut squares from when I sorted & folded my stash. I have a lot of 4 in. squares, it turns out! I also have a lot of 1-1/2 in. ones. I got a silly notion in my head to attempt a micro-mini coaster, and ended up making 4. I think they're adorable, what do you think? Each one is approx 1 inch square.

I've also made some full size ones, but I haven't decided which will be for sale & which will be for gifts. I've got a bunch more waiting to be finished as well, but Halloween is coming soon, and I have costumes to make!

The sewing machine beckons! Come back soon!
