I am so excited

I have finally won something, which is a real rarity with me, only happens once in a blue moon or so.
But what is even more exciting is that I have won two things in the last few days. A DVD from Disney, from Samelia's Mum's blog and from Gabi at Bee-Inspired a lovely little hand made Sewing Kit.

Woohooo, if I knew how to put a little person dancing on here I would.

Thanks so much to both of you, The DVD will go to my Grandson who will soon have a little sister and the Sewing Kit, well it is going to be MINE.

Baby Stuff

I am soo pleased how this turned out, I was a little bit worried that I would not get the face looking as nice as it should, but the little bear has turned out so cute. I hand appliqued the bear and her pillow, and just quilted very close to the edge of it, the outside squares all have a "z" through them, thought it fitted with the sleeping.

This is for my new granddaughter. (When she arrives that is)

A Cushion Cover

I found a pattern on the net on doing flying geese in a circle, click here, I really wanted to try it, and I had heaps of black so that became the background, I used scraps (again) as the geese themselves. When it was finished I decided I had to make something out of it, so after digging a bit I found more scraps of the same fabric and got just enough to make the border and the prairie points.

I am happy with it, I used a pale blue heavier than normal thread (sorry no idea what it was there was no label and I have had it forever) as the quilting thread and went 1/4 inch off the ditch.

I really like the pattern, but it is a lot of fiddling and there is a lot of wastage.

Another Baby quilt

I have finished the pink scrap floor quilt for my new arrival, only thing left to do is put a name on.

Here is the back of it. All done in little bits of left over flannellette

And here is the front, the colours are not true in the photo, the outside border is done in purples and yellows and the corner stones ar red.
