Had a hankering to do some embroidery so the resulting doodling around ended up as a crazy quilt table runner.
Our cutie pie grand-daughter had her first birthday last week and I was lucky enough to make her cake. There was a beautiful 3-layer cake on the net which got modified down to 1-layer.
I’ve been wanting to applique a boat for some time to complete the wall hangings down one of the corridors at work. A resident drew me up a large 2 masted schooner and I’ve turned that into a wall hanging. The ocean was pieced using Karen Eckmeier’s idea of freeform and topstitched curves and the machine quilting is using some of Leah Day’s ideas.
This blanket is made up using ‘Priscilla Hewitt’s’ circle of friends pattern off the internet. It took a few goes to suss out the pattern but was accurate once I concentrated! Others have made it up using all dark colours which gives it a very different look. Thanks for the pattern :)
This year’s ladies retreat had the theme of , “One Size Fits All – Yeah Right!” Besides having two wonderful speakers, we tried lots of different shoe themed crafts, lots of fun! Thanks for the great day everyone :)
Thanks to Sarah Phillips for her free online dinosaur hat pattern. By using bulky wool it knitted up really quickly and fitted a 2 year old well :)
Birdies, party frocks and flowers made this a very fun quilt to applique and quilt. Have a bit of a thing about bunting to match at the moment too!
