Finishes 30th March

Welcome to another Finishes post.  The school term is nearly finished so some of my spare time has been used to help the kids get assignments and other school work completed and handed in.  I did get some bits for myself done also.  First up....

I had to get the windows tinted on my car, which happened to be in the same street as Breezy's Cakes
so I finished this yummy cupcake and a cuppa while I waited.  The things I have to endure!!! The store has kids classes on the school holidays, so my daughter is all booked in for that.
 I finished another block in the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM, very cute. The next block has arrived already, I hope to get it cut this week, fingers crossed.

I have basted 20 bazillion neutral 1" hexagons for my hexagon diamonds, don't they just look lovely.  I am hoping this is enough to finish the quilt, but maybe not...

I basted some 1.25" hexagons also.  These are from leftovers and is a very long term project.  I started this one Christmas 2012 and am just throwing them into a bucket as I do some.  This project stays in my car and is done while I wait wherever for whatever...

My Celtic Solstice top is complete.  This was a mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.   I love this quilt.  It is now in the pile of tops to be quilted :(

and these are some of the diamonds I have completed for the quilt.  I have many more done, with only one more complete diamond to make then I can start putting them together into the groups of three, then those into rows, then sew the rows together.  then I will have to make the partial diamonds to fill in the gaps at each end of the rows. gosh that exhausting.

well I think that is it for now.  I do have other stuff  I am working on but they are not in any form to make a pretty picture, sorry.

take care and keep  stitching
