XANDER'S PATCH Nuneaton

Here is another of my finished quilts ready in time for the baby shower. It’s going to be my brothers first baby so I made it extra special with thus basket, hand knitted teddy and other goodies. I thought it turned out really well.

Here is my finished scrap quilt. It’s taken a long time to make and is a labour of love. Binding is hand stitched and all fabric has been collected over the years. It’s a double, almost kingsize (the bed in the photo is kingsize). It’s also for sale for £200.

Tonight’s make is a large cushion for my partners nephew. It’s his birthday tomorrow and he’s turning 1. Hope he enjoys it.

I finished this quick quilt a couple of weeks ago. All embroidered characters with butterfly fabric.

Here’s another recent quilt I have made. I wanted a scattered photo look which I think I did well with the embroidered pictures. I did a hidden diamond technique for the patchwork part. I love the bright colours.

I made this bag last night for a lovely lady who comes to my workshops. She was kind enough to make me a quilt so I thought I’d make her something I know she’ll use. I hope she likes it.

Another update on the insanity challenge I’m doing. I haven’t missed a day, as of yesterday I started using results formula. It’s my 6th week now and the workouts just keep getting harder. I’ve also come up with my own version of a protein meal as I’m a really fussy eater. I have what I call ‘cowboy dinners’  it’s basically all my favourite veg in a tin foil pocket with chicken and spices. It steams in the oven and I’ve got myself a healthy, filling meal full of protein. Try it. I even make them for my housemates as they love them.

My old radio was looking sun died and a bit worse for wear so I’ve Decopauged it with some old wrapping paper and I think it looks as good as new

Another insanity challenge done. Sweating so much right now. I’m on my third week now and I’m starting to see changes to my body.

Using the fact I’m doing the insanity challenge as a reason to upload a body shot. I’m usually a lot more P.G than this.

Here are some photos from gay pride. I’m in the white t-shirt, Crystal Beth in drag, Jonnie in the hat and Rich the ginger. Had a wicked time.

Baby bump in motion

Baby shower went well and tash loved her quilt. I’m now going to bed before I collapse. I’m helping with a new cafe open day tomorrow (if that makes sense?) so I need my strength.

I have a baby shower on Friday and this is all I’ve managed to get done of the baby quilt I intend on giving as a gift. I’m working full time and rushing on on my breaks to sew. I feel like I’m about to drop. On the plus side this fabric is fantastic.
