Her latest venture is for a great niece, ( sister to Monster quilt recipient) and it is just gorgeous.
Mum has amazing talent when it comes to stitching and craft and she is a mean china painter too.
The centre piece of the quilt is done and it will be surrounded by pinwheels and a border of appliqued butterflies.
|I just love this embroidery on Jill's apron.|
|the writing is all in satin stitch embroidery.|
The centre panel is from a craft magazine, I am not sure which one (I have been advised that it is a pattern by Corrie Blunt from Chitter Chatter Designs). She enlarged the panel to make a quilt size, the original was a wall hanging I think.
I received some loveliness in the mail this week too...
this gorgeous pom pom scarf from Narelle (at pins and whiskers), it is so warm and snuggly!
Fiona from bubzrugz sent me this cute as key holder! I am constantly losing my keys and there have been some mornings when I have been close to walking to work because I have been unable to find them, thank goodness for the boys who usually pitch in and find them in the most obvious places for me!
so big thanks to Fiona and Narelle, you are wonderful bloggy friends!
Last night I added the last of the green filler hexagons to my hexie garden! Extreme Happy Dance!!!
While 'dad sitting' this morning I started the not so glamorous job of pulling out basting threads and removing the iron on backings. I got about half of them done. It needs a good press and then I will show the top. I am hoping to get the borders on next week. I am so excited I could explode, but then I would just have to clean the mess up.
Hope you all have a wonderful crafty weekend
