A Sneak Peak

Have just started working on some dresses for a hanging wall quilt.

Am so in love with this!

Raggy quilts everywhere I go!

They seem to be following me but thank goodness they are so lovely.

I have had the pleasure of gently introducing 2 people in the last few weeks to the love of quilting and am now enjoying the fruits of their labour.

First on a trip to QLD, the crafty Shannon came to visit. Armed with her machine and a stack of fabric we whipped up most of it in a day. I have a picture of it a few weeks ago but loved seeing the end result. Totally changed my mind about the some of the fabric choices.

Now, the eagerly awaited photo from the Knitting Guru herself, Ness has been sent through and it has been pronounced good. She is so keen that has the fabric for another all ready to go!

Inspired by all the silliness I had an email that another friend wants to make one. Love it!!! Love getting to play with other peoples fabric.

Lesson's learnt.

Don't pander to 5 year olds that want dinosaur footprints on their quilt and then add a loud thread to a loud boarder. I hate it and am glad it will rarely leave the house. Said 5 year old of course loves it. It loves far louder and garish in real life and yes, it does need an iron.

“Hearken unto the sound o’ me blatherin’s!”

The Pirate is done. The boy is very pleased. I am yet to add some beads and sticks that are in the pattern but here he is in all his glory!

I am never crocheting a toy again. Ever.
