So onto the W.I.PS and thankfully, after a few weeks of crap progress, I can cross some of those W.I.PS off the list.
- Colour brick quilt - still not bound
- Circle stitched cushions - no progress.
Little Apples tumbler quilt - no progress. Just wing it quilt - blocks all trimmed ready to sew.
- FQ Sewing retreat name tag swap - no progress.
Half moon modern HST quilt - blocks ready to sew.

My third W.I.P Finish was the Little Apples tumbler quilt. The kick that I needed to get this finished came when I read Lynne's post on the Charity Siblings (Lynne's post explains it all far more eloquently than I can). I knew instantly that I wanted to be involved, and that I wanted to donate this quilt. There is a dedicated Flickr group, where you can donate a quilt, a block, spare fabric or just your time.

This is another start/finish for last week. I was forced away from the sewing machine for the day and decided to make myself a new mini ironing board. I used this Oh. Fransson Tutorial.
It hasn't been touched by an iron yet, but it makes a cracking extension to my sewing table for quilting.
Linking up to W.I.P Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
Apologies for my lack of blog commenting this week. We have been ikeaing the life out of our living room and I have been knee deep in cardboard since Monday. I will be back to my normal verbose self after the Easter weekend.
