Here's my 'goodies' - Aunt Millie's Garden applique pattern - I have been chasing it for quite a while! Another 3 patterns, a bag, a cushion and cute little clowns and caterpillar designs done with yo-yos. In the middle, just glorious fabric I couldn't resist - maybe a cushion top for Ronald McDonald House and plenty left over, because I just love it! Then on the right, fabric for a new bag as per pattern, Perle threads and into the lower middle a Liberty hankie for a Christmas gift for someone!
Friend Barb basted my Charisma quilt on her long-arm machine, so of course I had to start stitching last night - if you click on the quilt to enlarge, you may be able to see how the big stitches look - I'm looking forward to completing it to see how it all turns out! Georgina didn't pose for this picture - this is just how she is about anything I am hand-sewing - even if I throw a block on the floor to view it at a distance she is straight onto it - lucky Maltese don't have a doggy-smell or shed hair!
By the way - Charlotte, 'Char' has contacted me and it was great to visit her - she's at TobycatCreations - maybe you would like to visit to tell her how gorgeous her little quilt is that she sent to me for DQS5!
The sun is coming out - so, we didn't get much rain out of that - better walk the puppies, then maybe a bit of sewing, or maybe just some hand-quilting!
Hope you are having a good weekend!
Hugs - Lurline!
PS - Peg from Happy in Quilting is having a party today - there have been updates all day - worth a visit to join in - she really shows how crazy we Aussie girls can party. Go back to Older Posts to enjoy it all!
