A Couple More ...

Cot quilt tops.  No more (at least until I've quilted these).

"Retro" is a design from Camille Roskelley's book "Simply Retro".  The seafoam coloured fabric is a lovely soft flannel.

The traditional Shoo Fly block was used for the last cot quilt.  It creates nice secondary patterns.  The fabric is Riley Blake's "Hollywood Sparkle" - it has a lovely pearlised sheen.  Very glamorous.

I added the leftover blocks to the backing - it needs a good iron before basting.

During the week I received a couple of parcels from friends in Queensland.  A while ago I ordered some magnetic pin bowls for Christmas presents but missed out on a pink one for myself.  Teresa was placing an order and managed to score a pink one for me - you could say I was tickled pink.

Also, Helen sent some fabric so that I can make a certain sweetheart a Pookie Panda.

I have the best friends.

Another border has been added to Jelly Rolls Gone Wild Log Cabin

and the pile of little granny squares is slowly growing.

Had some extra time on Saturday afternoon and made this very cute pencil case - it's a free design called "A Pencil Case for Lola" from Patterns by Annie.  The very cute fabric was a gift from another friend a few months ago.

Having a day off on Wednesday - so looking forward to seeing the babies.
