Some quilting done on scrappy quilt for FNWF

Last night when I joined with Cheryll and friends I got some quilting done on this scrappy quilt
This year is my year to use nothing but fabric from my stash
Have pretty much succeeded ( well apart from a little purchase early in the year of some REALLY cheap fabric at the Op shop. So that doesn't count Right? )
I seem to have a collection of farming related fabric so into this quilt they went along with some orphan blocks and a couple of recently completed tractor stitcheries
Very happy with the result
Just home from footy
I wore tights under my jeans , but only one pair of socks Little toesys are freezing
Footy isn't so bad because you can sit in the car and watch, but netball is another story
Best go heat my toes by the fire
