Last month, April, my finishes were the Christmas in July swap; and yes I have it finished early so I can't show you until my secret swap partner has recieved her parcel in July.
I also finished two baby quilts which I will post about in the next day or two. One of these is for a dear friend who recently had a baby girl.
I also finished a swap for Rhonda's Down to Earth blog, it was a useful swap consisting of two potholders and two dishtowels. It was direct swap and not everybody in the swap had a blog. I got to know my swap partner through emails and this was fun. I decided to use primary colours for her and I was FINALLY able to email her last night and she was totally thrilled with what I set her. *grin* I was so pleased; LOL esp as I have decided now that after making two sets of potholders in the past few months that they aren't my favourite thing to make!
This is what I made her;
I recieved K's swap parcel to me yesterday and will share it with you tomorrow - can't show everything in one day, have to save something for tomorrow!
This month I have been working on the quilt I am making from the Woodland Bloom range. I have the big block together and am up to pieceing the borders. My deadline to get this in one piece is the end of the month. Quilting can wait for another month as I have another quilt to quilt this month.
Since March when I visited Kerry at Cottage on the Hill and bough some gorgeous flannels I have been working on them. To date I have one row together and the blocks ready to join for the second row. I have four more rows to put the outside block borders on. It is a BIG quilt and this is why it is taking me a while (amongst other things) to get it done. It is approx 90" x 108". yup, BIG! *grin* mmm nice cuddly flannel for these cold days and nights.
Last week I used some Aviary sweet roll strips to make the Moda bakeshop's little bag for my mum. As I only put batteries in the camera today I didn't take a picture of the finished bag yet. ummm I actually have to find some velcro for the fastening as I wasn't sure what sort of fastening mum would want so left it without one and asked for her preference, this will be fixed soon. So here is a picture of the strips BEFORE I made the bag. Gorgeous colours and roses....
