Wishing everyone a lovely christmas and fantastic new year!
I apologise for blogging little this last month and aim to blog more in the new year.
We have had three weddings, a farming seminar and numerous other things on to attend to in the past couple of months. I think we have lived in the car part time! I am glad to be home for a while now.
I received this parcel in the mail today, a secret santa parcel from the online stitching group I am in - Friends in Stitching. Looking forward to opening this tomorrow (and the SSCS one).
This quilt I finished just this morning, in time for Christmas.
This is 'Taffy Treats' by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill; I bought this as a kit from Honeysuckle Cottage about two years ago. This has been a flimsy for almost that long! This photo is to show the backing for someone who asked me recently on the phone about what backing I used...here it is. Not my first choice for backing for this quilt but by the time I made the quilt this range was quite hard to get (Poetry Collection by April Cornell); and I am happy with what I have used.
The scallops make the quilt so pretty. It was hard to let this quilt go, but it is going to be dearly loved where it has gone. I delivered it at lunchtime today to a neighbour who lives on another farm closer to town. She has been really good to me since we bought the farm and I wanted to show my appreciation for all that she has done.
This quilt is 'Rebekah Amy' by Rosalie Quinlan and I have used mostly Simplicity fabrics by 3 Sisters with a little Poetry Collection by April Cornell and a couple of other fabrics.
This quilt I finished last Monday (sewing the binding down). This quilt was commissioned before Christmas last year for Christmas 2010. I checked earlier in the year and again LAST WEEK, and yes, she did still want the quilt. Delivery day has come and gone, with the purchaser not taking my calls so I am very frustrated with being given the run around. I would prefer for someone to say that they have changed their mind.
This quilt is FOR SALE now.
I have a price range in mind so make an offer if you are interested.
Anyone interested please leave a comment
or email me at ohsewbusy at ipstarmail dot com dot au.
NEXT TIME I will be asking for a deposit to cover materials, this is a lesson learned.
I will be back in a flash with pictures of my SSCS and FIS Secret Santa parcels tomorrow!
Enjoy your Christmas Eve!
