There's been a bit of quilting stuff happening, and other sewing of course.
I'm a bit of a fan of this girl, and her beautiful work. I spied this quilt in Feb and think I pulled all the scraps out for it straight away! It took till now with all the other projects that came up to get it started- and it only took me a week! I used a pink homespun with it, as I use so much white in quilts I wanted something different.
I haven't decided on the layout yet, there are a few versions in the original post that inspired Nova (who has now inspired me hehe) so I might put the design wall up tonight and get laying!
I also saw this on Nova's blog (OK, now I sound all stalkerish, but I saw it over here too, it was a coincidence, I swear!) Anyway, it was good timing, as I have been pretty slack for the nephew...I mean, only 1 quilt in 8mths....sheesh!)
I got out the blue cotton stuff I scored a while ago when the school was throwing it out;
and a plan formulated when I spotted this thread at Spotlight. I'm going a bit neon mad at the moment, I like 'pops' of it in things at the moment.
So I joined The QAL and got started....might be getting ahead of myself though, better slow down!
Couldn't resist a mirror ball dot in there hehe
The girl decided she needed to make some new lavender sachets today for her drawer....and lucky Henry got one for his sock drawer too!
I had the Maze and Vale prints already pieced for a cushion, and this scrap was in the scrap bin just waiting...
Oh, and I finally got a snap of the girl and her braces...only took 3 weeks, and I think she forgot about them for a sec! I really thought it would be a year before she let me take a pic of her again!
Speaking of cute (weren't we?) here's the little man himself- 8mths old and standing/cruising and has started those slobbery baby kisses. In. Love!
