Busy stitching

I have three quilting projects on the go at the moment....ok we all know I have more than 3 but these are the ones I am currently excited about!

The first is actually a finished quilt that was sent express post to the middle of nowhere in NSW yesterday...for our EB Doll's quilt swap...one has arrived at my place but I have to wait til the 7th to open it!
The second is for a special new delivery! Just waiting to finish the label and it too will be in the post. I'm really please with this one as it has some free motion quilting on it...'free motion' in the sense that I didn't just do 'stitch-in-the-ditch' my regular quiting style. I used a paper cut out of the heart, pined it to the quilt and slowly and carefully stitched around it. Not bad if I do say so...all of the hearts are curved not chunky straight-lined so I'm very pleased.

The third is of course Joy's RR that should have been finished ages ago....I was so unsure about what to do....even though I had bought the fabric....the rest of the quilt looks sooooo good I didn't want to stuff it up and so I just sat and looked at it....but I have made a great start and it shouldn't be too long before it is finished....just lots of hand applique to go!! So here is an unfinished sneak peek!

I'm also madly hand stitching the last animal block for 'Noah'. I think i will but the ark together tonight!

Oh and for those that are interested our second cycle of IVF is going very well...I'm not half a sick as I was last time. We collected 11 eggs of which 8 fertilised, one will be putting one back on Monday...I'm hoping we have at least 7 healthy ones to choose from!! Keep your fingers crossed for us!!

Hmm, I'm intrigued by the doll quilt, and love the RR peek. I can't wait to see Joy's again, as a lot will have been added since I had it!

Good luck for the transfer. I would cross my fingers, but it's a bit herd while sewing, so my legs are crossed while pinning etc., instead!

Oooh - very teasy sneak peak of my RR! I keep looking at it hoping to see more ;)

And I am soooo happy that the egg collection went well for you and it's a bonus that you aren't as sick this time. I'm nearly done with my big fat baby belly and would be thrilled to hand it on over to you!
