While the cats away.....

...this mouse will play.....

and looky who came to play with this little mouse yesterday ...

Kris from Tag Along Teddies and she finished off the binding of her latest creation.....
 isn't it just the sweetest (like Kris!!)
Kris is making a couple of other goodies to go with it and then it will be packaged as a new pattern.....


It's adorable

Anyway... my cat (Hubz) is away so I am going to be sewing allllllll daaaaaaayyyyy and into the night..... 
(it is FNSI so there will be lots of you to sew with!!)

This quilting that I am doing is new to me... and it is tiny little feathers..... very slow and careful...


a few people asked what I used for my quilting.....  I learnt on a small Janome but Hubz kindly bought me this larger Pfaff.... it only does plain stitching but it has a nice space so even quite big quilts squish up easily... he is good and strong and hard working - ..... Prince Pfaff has covered his costs already.... (of course it's male!!!!)


I do all my quilting and piecing on him .....

me and my Pfaff are in good company.....



Even without Hubz here I will be watching the cricket while I stitch ....


test matches are great... young men in white pants and killer smiles....  

Righto, Gotto Go ... pppppllllllllaaaaaayyyyyyy tiiiiiiimmme.......

What a cute little design! Wow, such little feathers....big sweeping designs are much easier, I haven't done a lot of small stuff.

Loving that little quilt, would look lovely with personalised name on too! I would love a Pfaff I was looking at new ones in UK but talked myself out of it, I only really need the bigger space for quilting so may just look for a secondhand one too! Hugs x
