Two finished and some progress

Hooray! Finally a finish! I have been working slowly on Scandinavian Christmas since last year and only just finished the binding and the label a few weeks ago when it came back from Robyn Cawdron, my special quilter. I am very pleased with it!
 Here is the label.
 This sewing pocket was started in March at Urban Stitches in Sydney, has been hand stitched for a while and took only a short time to sew together! I wish I didn't procrastinate with the machining.
 Even more exciting is that I finally put together the last piece of stitching for the Vignette quilt by Leanne Beasley. I have left this quilt 3/4 done and haven't had time or the inclination to continue till now. There is still plenty of patchwork that needs doing but at least I am back working on the quilt.

 I have been enjoying a little crocheting too. I bought this variegated Noro wool in Melbourne and am making a scarf....again!

Your quilt is beautiful, and Christmas isn't too far away to show it off. I have the same trouble with machining, no problem with the hand work though.
