some finishes

It feels good to have some finishes...
I finished the raspberry ripple and am on to a blueberry ripple for my other niece. I am enjoying working on these on the cold nights we are having recently.

I couldn't wait to bind my mini that fiona quilted and it was bound and hanging in no time.
Another finish was this item from my ufo list. I can't remember what month I chose to work on this but it only got to the top stage. With my new walking foot I was able to run some simple quilting lines and get this finished. I am loving having it on the table. I am so glad it didn't become the dilly bag it was intended to be.
The carnation in the pic is from our garden. I am not a fan of carnations but this one is quite pretty.
Not much other crafting happening at the moment. I have two more Sweet William blocks prepped ready to go and I am looking forward to working on them.
Hope you are having a great week
cheers
Marina

Lots of lovely finishes! Gorgeous work on the first ripple blanket, and lovely colours in the second.
It's great to see your mini finished and hanging.
And well done on the runner, too. Perfect for the vase and flower.
