Thank you so much for all the messages of congratulations on the arrival of our newest grandson Jack.... I have had my first Skype chat with him... he slept through it!!! Technology is wonderful.
My brother has had his heart surgery on Wednesday and spent a night in the ICU and yesterday he was off the respirator and sitting up and ate a banana... today he was going to be going for a walk and will be home within a week .... just amazing... new heart valves just like that.....
I have been lucky enough to be asked to make a demonstration quilt for one of our Local Quilt Shops...
It's called Wisteria Walk and made from Grandma's Flower Garden range...
I loved the extra ruffles and yo-yo's that gave the quilt that extra bit of fun....
You can see the full quilt on The Quilters Angel blog HERE
I enjoyed making this quilt... the basic top blocks can be done in a weekend ... and the frills and binding in another weekend.... the quilting... well... someone else did that and very beautifully too!!
Marion from The Quilters Angel has the quilt pattern and kits are available HERE
Quilters Angel have a giveaway on their blog at the moment..... some paper piecing products.... I don't know why I am telling you since reduces my chances!! I'm thinking maybe it's time for me to learn something new???
This week has spun by.....
do you remember our little Fairy Wrens?
I introduced them HERE when Mr had not changed colour and was being very protective of his girlfriend
then HERE they were flirting madly in my garden
well we have been hearing little tweets and seeing a youngster skit around.. they are very quick and shy
but look who took a wrong turn and flew inside
the picture is very blurry... this little wren was quite stressed so I didn't want to go too close
I opened the big door and he/she flew off... but a dinky little fellow (less than 3") with a funny short tail which makes him/her look top-heavy
Have a lovely weekend.... I need to do a bit of
sorting... and washing.... and ironing... and cleaning.... and tidying... and stitching
