A new look

It was time for a change in the boys room, I bought them new doona covers yesterday. The old ones were blue and quite plain so I thought I would get something a bit brighter, Now their quilts don't really match so what a better excuse to start thinking of new ones I can make for them. Red and brown are my favourite colours so it will be fun shopping for new fabrics. Did you notice the Puma cushion on the bed, Daniel made that in sewing at school. He wasn't impressed when he discovered sewing was a compulsory subject but then they could design their own cushion cover so he was happy to do that. He didn't do a bad job. This is bedroom 2. My two younger sons share a room. Their room looks nice and bright now.

Today I woke up with a shocking sore throat so I haven't done much sewing today. I had a play with these blocks and sewed the borders on and traced the designs. Its a Natalie Bird project with very sweet sayings on each block.


I got this block ready to stitch now for "Remember when" quilt. Its such a nice quilt to work on. When I have finished this will go on display in the shop. Its so popular with our customers, there are quite a few ladies working on this one. I hope you found some sewing time today.

I do hope you feel better soon, Leanne. Sipping hot lemon and manuka honey sometimes helps. The boys rooms look fresh and bright with the new doona covers and new quilts are definitely needed. Your Natalie Bird blocks are charming! Take care, Ann :-)
