Well the geese have been flying here and the suffolk puffs puffing!
Two of my ladies showed off their beautiful log cabin baskets filled with colourful yoyo flowers.
I have been working on some end of year teacher gifts involving geese. These wee flying geese finish at 2 inches by 1 inch and are fun to do!
They are addictive too.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.

This is a class sample for my morning ladies. We are currently on the Log Cabin basket of Yoyos and they are having fun!
I hand quilted some of the quilt but didn't want to go overboard as the Applique and piecing speaks for itself. I used some pearl cotton and some Aurifloss for hand quilting too. I am so pleased with how it turned out and very excited for my ladies to finish their own creations too. The flowers and clam shells were influenced by the amazing Jen Kingwell but I added my own touches with the hexagons and diamonds.
While working on the EPP pattern by Quirky Granola girl, I had a constant medley of Star Wars music running through my head! I saw the #patchworkdeathstar on Instagram ( my user name is Poppypoochie if you want to follow me there - you can also see lots of other brilliant deathstars and one using Liberty fabrics!).
My 9 year old Jacob loves Star wars so I knew I had to make it for him.
It was a little fiddly in parts due to the curves but I managed and just need to Applique it onto the background fabric.
This is one of those little experimental things that I am loving but just going with the flow. At least the dog approves!
I am off to check the rain has stayed off as I have washing on the line! Here's hoping! Till next time.
