"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Two small finished items and one nearly finished.

This ATC and fabric postcard have been keeping me busy, as they had a deadline. The ATC (top) is an exchange for another Stitchin Fingers member, in England. The theme for everyone in the exchange was "My Country". My stitching of 'AUSTRALIA' is pretty wobbly, but I don't think my partner will mind.
This patriotic postcard is my contribution to the FPCs for Bushfire Victims on Stitchin Fingers. I had done one earlier, but wasn't happy with it, so I feel better about this one.
I've been working on these chickens when I felt like doing something that didn't take as much concentration. The green border will have a red edge outside it, and that will be surrounded by a brown border. The reason I chose those colours is because I'm going to make this into a table centre by adding a wide border of fabric around the edges of this piece. The fabric has roosters all in rows, and the colours of the fabric include these three colours.

You two always pop up so promptly when I've posted something here - thank you! It is so encouraging to see comments on one's blog, isn't it? I am aware by the stats counter thing that people do look at it, as I do all the others on my sidebar, and more as well. Still nice when friends drop in!
