SSF Round-up, A few snaps and some Charity

Okay guys, it went by very fast, but Sewing Spaces Focus has officially come to an end. It has been fun to have all these wonderful women be my guests and say little something on my blog. You have been wonderful ladies!

So here's the masterlist for you all

Thank you all. It would have been impossible for me to carry off something without your help!

And most of all, a big thank you to all my wonderful readers. You really cheered me up. I have had my hands full for a while and so some of you might not have got replies to your comments. But I assure you, before the end of March, I'll personally reply to all your comments. 


Today I finally managed to borrow DH's wonderful camera and clicked a few snaps.

First off, a few arrivals... I received this wonderful package from Rosa Munda for the Mug Rug Swap. Aren't the mug rugs beautiful?

Next, I also received a mini quilt from Sandi. It is absolutely beautiful. Aadi loves it and let me borrow it for a while to click snaps.

I also recived tow of the five books I ordered from amazon. They told me the other package has got delayed and I wont be getting it till April! :(... But they did refund me the shipping charges as compensation... :D


So here's my quilting / sewing books library at the moment.


I also received some of the gorgeous fabric that I ordered.


Some Echino


A few rockets & planets


Some bikes


Here's the whole bunch along with the slippers and wardrobe fabric...

I also managed to photograph my Soul Blossoms Quilt...


The pattern will be released on 1st March. You can buy it from my Etsy shop.

Next, I also managed to finish the mini Bob I had started a few days back for my UHGS partner. 

I loved the quilting. I was a wild idea. I started off with the wish to quilt it with random straight lines. But after making two perpendicular lines, I decided to change my plan! I'm glad that I did. It looks fab. Its going to be a little bit of trouble letting go this one.

UHGS Mini Bob!

I also liked the way the binding went with the entire effect of the quilt. What do you think?
