Look what dear Marina sent to me this week....
an apron and teatowel
aren't they so fun? and Marina's hand stitching is so very neat and lovely
I love them - just exactly tickles my sense of humour - thank you so much Marina xx
(and I don't need any smartarse comments about changing the stitcheries around thank you very much!!)
Before I went away I caught up on homework for my blocks from Sylvia's Bridal Sampler
|Grape Basket (20 pieces)|
One of the group (Lyn) added an extra person so that this is us 3 who are making the quilt together.... it will be a lovely way to remember the three of us sewing blocks for it each week.
|Friendship Block (17 pieces)|
|Rocky Road to Dublin (32 pieces)|
|Robbing Peter to Pay Paul (20 pieces)|
|Hands All Round - (37 pieces)|
I seem to have Sampler Block fetish at the moment as I have also joined in with The Splendid Sampler ....
The blocks come out 2 each week and they started whilst I was away so I spent some time catching up... there was a bit of hand work too which was perfect whilst catching up on a couple of TV shows I had missed too!
|Hearts A Flutter designed by Pat Sloan (9 pieces)|
|Wings designed by Jane Davidson (48 pieces)|
|Lots of Love designed by Mellissa Corey (48 pieces)|
As you can see for this one I am using some soft pretty romantic fabrics - they will be such different quilts
Righto, Gotto Go... there are now more blocks and more homework to be done!!!
