Work In Progress!

Yay! Yesterday was full of achievements and quite a bit of excitement in Blogland! Above - see I sewed the Cozy Tiny Tot's Quilt together and started snipping late last night - another gift it will be and that makes me happy!

Another pic late last night - yes another apple pincushion for Someone Special - leaves, twig and a bit more sculpting to be done yet! I showed you Pinocchio quite some time ago - there he hangs over the kitchen bench watching all the activity in kitchen and family room - perhaps, I, too, have never grown up! I still love all things child-like!

Pop over to visit Nedra at Cactus Needle - she has a wonderful 5 days of Giveaways celebrating her Blogaversary - this was her first giveaway, yesterday - another one is up for grabs today!

Also, click the Blackbird button on my Sidebar to see a pattern/tutorial for a gorgeous quilt!
Pop over to visit Shari at Mumsyblossom's World - she is so excited about a wonderful raffle win - oh, to be so lucky!
My new computer is a Darling and we are getting along fine together - maybe that should be 'zooming'! A day out with friends tomorrow - that will be a lovely change and I'm really looking forward to it!

Happy day everyone!

Love the shaggy quilt ... looks very snuggly for winter. Your pincushions are so cute, the fabrics you've chosen are so pretty. By the way, your Pinocchio is adorable ;o).

I agree with the other commenters, your quilt is lovely and will be so cozy. I love your pears and apples they are so perfectly smooth and the leaves lay just so, it makes you want to take a bite. It's funny how we grownups love to have a little childhood whimsey around. I think that my grandkids are a little envious, they say you have really neat things Grandma, all the way from dolls to miniature glass chickens and dishes to miniature horseshoes. I'd give some away, but I don't think they'd last as long, they can visit them.
