Hello one and all, and welcome to my new followers; I do hope you enjoy your visit with me and thank you for leaving me your pleasing messages of encouragement and support - I do appreciate your valuable time!
Last post I mentioned that there was something else I'd made but couldn't show you yet as it would spoil a surprise - well, the gift has been happily received now so here is a quick peek:
A little wall hanging for a baby due a wee bit later in the year, and not knowing whether the little one will be boy or girl I tried to cover all bases with colour choices.The second pic below shows the placket on the back which will accommodate a rod yet not be seen when the quilted piece is hanging on the wall. It really was fun putting this little piece together and I'm happy that the baby's Mum is delighted with it.
I'm still dragging out the birthday - you may remember me showing a lovely piece of fabric that was part of Hannapat's gift to me? Okay, well, it made up into a lovely cushion that pleases me no end: thanks again lovely Hannapat!
Isn't it a gorgeous cheery thing! And look how well it goes with my 'round the colour wheel' blanket too! Jo kindly mentioned that it is an Amy Butler fabric, thanks Jo!
Yesterday I felt like making another 'Kate' dress but hadn't shopped for fabric! Anyway, I had picked up a remnant the previous week to add to quilting stash - at a bargain price of $5 - not even considering that it might be enough to make something to wear, in fact hadn't even thought the fabric was my sort of thing .. to wear?!!! Anyway, I pulled it out, measured it up and realised there was enough to make the dress, only a bit shorter - in other words, a top! I always was rather careful when cutting out fabrics whilst dressmaking and practice paid off .. .. .. what do you think?
Hubby reckoned it would look good with a scarf wrapped around my neck - yeah, I know, that's not my neck but it gives you an idea of how it would look anyway .. we're back to winter here again and I'm not posing ..
That's enough for makes isn't it! How about a few pics of our neighbourhood again? Okay ..
These were all taken from the same spot, about five minutes drive from home. We are very fortunate to have areas like this where we can go and sit quietly and be at peace, don't you think?
That's about it again folks, and I hope you've enjoyed your little visit - just a few shots from the garden this week .. ..
This is the most gorgeous deep red rose - I don't know it's name, it was here before us and is quite matured, and below are a few little looks at the hibiscus again, a young hebe, and the South African plant whose name I've forgotten again, again, again!!!
Last but not least, this is another lovely mature rose that was also here before us and it's the most beautiful orange/red colour .. ..
See you all next time lovelies, and in the meantime keep well and be happy!
With my love,
