I have finished one of the table pieces I started last weekend. This one is for a friend. I hope they like it! I'm having a house warming on the weekend so I'm thinking I might try and decorate my room a little better because at the moment it is very 'daggy' for all those Aussies out there they will know what I mean. I was thinking I can at least make some pretty quilted cushions and square mats for the bedside table, bar fridge and top of the book shelf. I also thought an interesting vase with some flowers might help spruce things up. See if I have enough energy by Friday.

This is the backing material I am using. The binding will be done in the red/gold material that is featured in the blocks. I've done the quilting in cream/neutral thread but maybe for the others I will try doing it using a red thread.

This is my craft corner with craft books on shelf, sewing machine set up, crocheting projects and wool stash under the table as well as my fabric stash.
And here is dear Charlotte in her 'day' pen. I just can't trust her when I'm at work, I know what she's like she'll nibble on all the furniture if I'm not watching her so when I'm not there she is in the pen otherwise she has free range of the room and house but she is still too scared to wander in the rest of the house and tries to run back into the room if I take her out.
On the craft side of things I've washed all my Christmas quilt fabric and just need to iron it before I get started on two Christmas table runners. They will both be presents. I've also continued working on the alphabet cross stitch, TRYING to get it finished before Christmas so I can take it with me when I visit my friends and their baby.
