A little gift I made

My daughter Andrea had a birthday last week and I decided to make her a cute cushion.  She loves it.

A cushion for Andrea

Tomorrow I shall be jumping out of bed at 4.30am to catch a 6.30 flight to Sydney.

Darling Harbour Quilt Show here I come!  How excitement!

A little late..but…….

I’ve never wanted a big deal made out of Mothers Day…but this year I decided I wanted to be spoiled a little bit.  So Rhyll set out to find something for me that would be rather special.  To say I was delighted was an understatement.  What do you think?

French Bear

This dear little  bear is made from cream linen, with just the tiniest touch of pink floral on her bow.  Her little facial features are done in grey thread and she looks very sophisticated in a ‘bearly’ kind of a way.

On a different note, I took of photo of Rhyll’s new Personal Assistant….Miss Haggis is her name…and she tends to fall asleep on the job just a little too often!

Another block done

I’m not the fastest kid on the block, but finally I did complete this block.  I did it all by hand as I couldn’t see how on earth I was going to get it done by machine.

I think there is only one block to go for this quilt now, which I am halfway through doing…then of course, there is all the putting together…which I’m sure will be pretty interesting also, seeing as we have been told to save all our scraps for it.
