new homes wanted......



Ever feel you need to clear out some ufo's. They won't get finished even though you still like them, or you've fallen out of love with them and moved on..... well it's time to clear out some projects as I don't see them getting finished any time soon and there will be new flimsies joining the ranks of the unquilted soon. So, I have decided to try to sell a few as they might be loved by someone else and get finished.
I would like to offer these flimsies for sale:
First top measures approx 80" x 46". I finished this in 2011.
 close up of fabrics
 these are leftovers....the fan fabric is almost a metre length and the mauve mottled is quite a large piece that I had intended to use for the backing. They will come as a package.
Next...
This top was a  bom in Homespun magazine. I have no inclination to have it quilted and it has sat around long enough. It would be nice if there was someone else who might love it. It's quite large and as you can see fits on a queen bed top. There are some strips of the outer border that I think I was going to use for binding too.
SOLD




I'd also like to offer these doilies for sale for $15 each. (Postage will be extra)
sold

If anyone is interested in any of the tops please email me and make an offer  and I will let you know what price I had in mind.
It would be lovely to rehome these where they will get finished and get them out of my cupboard. 

some secret stitching happening so not much to show and tell, some more bunnies made it to my house last week thanks to hub taking a trip. I hope to get some sewing time this weekend and make some up.
Cheers for now

The top one would suit an Aussie Hero if you decided to donate it to be finished.

They're all quite lovely, and I hope they find new homes. I'm in the process of adopting things out rather than in right now. Good Luck!
