Postcards, Custom Quilting and Squishies
This was made from tiny left over bits from a quilt I made my son in 2003/2004 ... yes I am guilty of keeping small scraps - but they are neat in a scrap stash box.
I have also added some yarn and decorative stitches with zig zag on this one.
I like this piece of fabric ... I have a couple of similar bits - obviously from the same "range" and they make perfect postcards.
I also forgot to share my Birthday Squishies - these are from a group LPQ that some of us girls swap birthday squishies ... my choice was black and whites.
Widebacks - beautiful beautiful. And I'm not affiliated - just a very happy customer (I also have the Widebacks sample book so my customers can see what they are getting before they order - a great way to ensure the fabric is right for the job).
And that is a rather long photo essay of what I have been up to in the past week or so. I spent some time on the weekend doing nothing other than spending time with my husband. We went to the Evandale Markets just out of Launceston for a bit of a poke around - it was incredibly cold though. We also went to the Cat show that was being held at Evandale on Sunday - it was really nice to see all the kitties - some of those British Blues are related to our two boys. And the Cornish Rex ... oh my they are just gorgeously ugly cats - one day I might have one of them - they are so dainty. We also went for a drive up to the Trevallyn Dam to have a bit of a look to see how much water was going over - only a little at the moment. It was a lovely day to go for a drive. Came home to a warm toasty fire.
Happy Quilting for now .... Jane x
