Sunday Sewing - Geelong cushion & string blocks

Today was Group #2 sewing day - KQ Girls

I took along the remaining 3 blocks (of 9) to prepare ready for sewing at retreat... I didn't take any photos of them -  but they are now safely tucked away in the gorgeous block holder I received as a Christmas present last year - and fortunately it is the perfect size.

Then I made this cushion - DH is a Geelong supporter, so when Spotlight advertised this fabric I thought I could make a cushion (at least) to show that sewing is not ALL about me. 

Then - spare time!!!  - I helped one of the other decorate a piece of fabric that she was using in an alphabet book as a pair of jeans (did 2 of them) and I did have my crochet but thought I would dig out some of the scraps we have accumulated over our years at this venue - and I knew there was a bag with pre cut strips I made these up:

I'm not sure where they will end up yet but I'm sure they will be used.

Fabulous sewing weekend for me - I hope you got some time to sew or do what ever makes you happy.
