A few updates

I have not had a lot of time to sew lately so my progress is slow but I did manage a few small things .First off I completed the February part 2 of Melody's BOM ,I really love working on this one .
Maybe I should have used smaller buttons but I still love this . Here is a close up of the sheep and the tree.








I also got one of the yellow house blocks made and one ready to sew together .I am really enjoying making these as well , thanks to Terry for hosting this .
I also did a little of the applique on my Ten Challenge piece for the quilt guild .I thought it would be easier to to the applique before I sew the strips together , it is a bit of a slow process as these are not all that big.
I also finished off a postcard but since that is in the mail I can not show you a picture of that at the moment , maybe once it arrives ;-) 

I am not sure how many are familiar with the Quilting Gallery but each week they have different themes you can enter your quilts and they are voted on , well this week just happened to be quilted pillows so I did enter one I made a couple of years ago for a friend , I quite liked it and hope you will like it enough to vote for me , actually this week you can vote up to 5 times and that is a good thing as there are a lot of gorgeous pillows on display . Go here if you are interested in voting and if you do happen to vote for me many thanks. 
Thanks for stopping by and hope your day is filled with sunshine. hugs Sheila
