A Birthday

Jenni turned 30 on Saturday.  The family met up for lunch to celebrate with Jenni at a terrific restaurant (Jenson's in Kareela) and we had such a wonderful time (there might have been a glass or two of Prosecco as well).  Gulli and ChaCha were so excited to see each other - just delightful and they kept all of us entertained.

One of Jenni's presents was in this parcel:

Not-finished Tessellation Quilt (designed by Allison Glass) and made using some of Allison Glass's beautiful fabrics, 

along with Moda Bella Solids and fabrics from my stash.  The quilt was started at Easter at the Stitching Girls' sewing day but was pushed aside again and again until I ran out of time (bad mumma).

Finished sewing the quilt top last Thursday night, wrapped it up for Jenni to see on Saturday and yesterday it was posted to Sarah for quilting.

It is a large wallhanging/lapquilt size.

The purple rainbow wool knitting is finished but not sewn up and I've started knitting up some Bendigo Woollen Mills "Bloom" wool in Rust colourway for some tiny newborn baby outfits for a friend who's going to become a grandma shortly.  The colours might be a bit strong but they look cute in these designs.

I'm collecting fabrics for another "Medley" quilt, to be made late this year or early next year.  I think there will be more than enough to use in the quilt.  This quilt is for a friend and she chose the turquoise fabric lower left and we've been adding co-ordinating fabrics.

After all the foundation piecing in Tessellation, I'm very much enjoying chain-piecing some Kaleidoscope blocks for a pretty cot quilt.
