This is a Lavender and Lace design. Such a relief to have it finished and given to Elizabeth. All that needed to be done was to couch down the halo rays - embarrassing to say the least.
I used the voile/lawn fabrics from "Smitten" and "Little Snippets" for the backing - these are such lovely, soft fabrics.
Karen quilted it last week
and dropped it off yesterday. Hope to sew on the binding in the next couple of days.
I love this "Scrumptious" floral for the baking. Karen will quilt this over the next while.
Little Sweetheart's "Elsa" dress is finished - photo was taken before Mum did the hand sewing. This was a dress pattern I used for Elizabeth probably 36 years ago.
I have a few cot quilts to make for some of Jenni's friends. Jenni asked for a Rainbow Quilt and sent me a photo of what she liked. I bought a bunch of Kona Solids from Sarah and they look pretty wonderful. I'll get around to sewing these blocks together after the Christmas sewing is done.
This zig-zag fabric for the backing with have a rainbow row of blocks through it.
Another of Jenni's friends loves natural, earthy colours, so I thought "Safari Life" by Stacy Iest Hsu would be a great fabric for her baby due next year. This is ready for quilting.
Love this animal print backing too.
A few months ago I stitched out some machine embroidery designs and cut out some rectangles from my stash of "Guess How Much I Love You?" fabrics - this cot quilt top has turned out to be very cute.
Had a fair amount of wool left over from making the sloth so I knitted a little vest in Fisherman's Rib for Jenni's friend's little boy.
Next ten stars are made for the "Hide and Seek" quilt-along. Such a great way to make a quilt having a goal for each week.
A couple of weeks ago Mum and I went to see "Judy" - loved it, although I felt very sad when I came out of the pictures. Mum had told me many times about Judy's sad life and how she was ruined by the studio system. Renee Zellweger is magnificent.
Friends and I went to see "Ford v Ferrari" on Sunday night - this is an action-packed movie about the development of a Ford racing car to win the Le Mans 24 hour race in France. Very loud movie but a good story, inspired by true events.
Next weekend is our annual trip to see "Schools Spectacular" - just Mum and I going this year - it's always a magnificent showcase of young talent. And then the girls and I are going on our annual epic Ikea trip on Sunday. Always fun.
