This week has been cold and miserable so I have spent alot of time in my sewing room sewing swap gifts and working on my magazine projects.
I was changing a few quilts around and decided to take this one outside for a little photo shoot, I made this in 2010, it was a pattern from an American Quilting magazine and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make it.
Its made from my Kansas troubles fabrics. This is one of my most favourite quilts that I have made.
My class sample is all finished and ready to hand over to Sarah for her to show her customers and hopefully they will like it and want to do my class. I had this fabric in the cupboard for so long and when I decided to use it for this project I wondered why I hadn't cut into it before. I really like it.
I promised to show you thr quilt labels on the back of hubby's quilt, There are a few. I thought it would be nice of the boys did one each.
Sorry they are a little hard to read. This one says I can't wait to go back to America, I love the fact our teenage boys still want to go on holidays with us.
This is my label, its all stitched but i haven't sewn it on yet. I'm so slack.
My lovely new friend Vanessa from USA sent me this beautiful pouch she made. Its so pretty. Thankyou Nessa, I love it and shall treasure it always.
I wanted to show you my new car. Its a Nissan Micra and drives beautifully. Cheap on petrol which is great, gives me more spending money for fabrics. I don't love it as much as my old car but I'm sure I will. It has a great heater which is awesome as its been so cold, today is freezing with a top temp of 10, The wind is like ice, but there hope Spring is not far away as I found some daffodils in my garden. Yay!!!!
Have a wonderful week, stay warm and I hope you find some sewing time.
