A Christmas Tale featuring Miss Mistlemouse all finished and ready to go. This is such a sweet quilt and all in all I am very happy with the way it has turned out.
Christmas Bakeshop also finished and ready to go. These are going to be donated to hopefully go in a Christmas raffle.Thanks Michelle, I love both of these patterns and they both turned out well. I altered my Gingies a bit so hope you forgive the poetic license.
After seeing a review of the Gail Pan book Patchwork love embroidery I decided to buy it at the quilt show. Yeah I even got Gail to put her name in the front page. Very happy little bunny walking around the show with it tucked in my bag. Hmmm after swapping shoulders I realised that I had spilt water on my beautiful new book. Home again and I dried the pages with the iron. Okay so it's not as pristine anymore but still useable. Last Friday had a great sewing day with Rosalie at Marina's and while showing off my book ... oops there goes the coffee, all over my book. I took it home with every page separated by paper towels. This book is just not meant to be in pristine condition! I can still use it, have done lots of the stitcheries already and it is being replaced.(thanks )Accidents happen and it is just a book. Despite everything the day spent with the girls was wonderful.
A month ago I told someone that I could crochet. Hmm better just check that I can remember how. As you can see, I remembered. A group I attend has the butterfly as a symbol so I googled patterns and the result is 12 big ones,1 thinner so smaller one and one that is slightly different. I also tried a snowflake but that is a one off, far too hard and not sure what to do with it.What do you call a lot of butterflies? a flutter, a horde or...?
