The Supper Cloth Lady Strikes Again ......lol.

Yep, finished another one, that leaves just one more supper cloth in the Great UFO Pile. This one is a little larger so could count as a small table cloth I guess. I really like the pattern of this one, in the white on white it looks very elegant.

It was started er, um - let's just say it was started sometime in the previous er 3 years.....lol.

Now if I can just get the remaining one finished I will have two Christmas presents completed way in time for Christmas. (Please don't hold your breathe though).

As well as finishing this I also have completed the quilt top I started when Philip was in the Palliative Care unit. I have made a few starts on it over the last year and a half but just haven't been able to really get into it.

I decided to make a real effort and get it finished. I was going to donate it to the unit but now have decided to donate to the 1000 Cranes for Peace Challenge.

I will quilt it after I finish a log cabin started sometime between the above supper cloth and the just finished quilt top.

I have made inroads on the log cabin one and am a little over half way through it. It is a basic log cabin until the last round when it has plain coloured bits (very technical term) that make stars when the log cabins are joined together.

There are 16 12 1/2" squares in it and I have to think (rotfl) to make sure I do the correct plain shapes in the right places to form the stars. So far so good. Have 5 blocks completed and the remaining blocks completed to the final two rounds.

Good for you Soozii! What has happened to us all? I have so many UFO's and I'm just making the pile bigger in spite of best intentions to finish things off this year....sigh! I have seen the log cabin pattern where the stars are formed from little "bits!" Will be looking for a picture here when it's finished.....
