I haven't worked on this quilt for a year. I know it is a year because the last time I worked on it was at the 2013 NOTYQ Retreat and that was 51 weeks ago. I'm getting it ready to take with me on this year's retreat which starts this Friday.
I've started cutting fabric ready to be made into large hexie flowers. The centres will all have a stitchery from Rosalie Quinlan's Best Friends Forever BOM.
This is such a useful project. I can see myself making lots of these busy bags for Henry
There is a fabulous, detailed tutorial to accompany the pattern HERE. Huge thanks to Becky from Infarrantly Creative for sharing it with us.
My passion for small things and particularly small stitching continues. At my last Stitching with Rosie Class not only did we get a gorgeous new full size pattern we got a tiny teeny weeny stitchery too. I decided to finish stitching it last night whilst watching a really ridiculous film about a zombie policeman.
I usually giveaway or swap most things I make but I'm keeping this one for me. Rosie is so clever and I love this little project
Aaahhh! Wonderful Alex Toys. Such a great discovery, such wonderful printables including this one
which you can find if you follow this LINK. There are brilliant assembling instructions too.
I am very lucky to have sweet Shez as one of my much loved bloggy friends.
Look what arrived in the post today. It is a giveaway win from Shez. I got to choose the stitchery design and the colour. I chose this design and colour so it wouldn't look too Christmassy and could stay out on display all year around.
She is hanging next to a really beautiful handmade card from dear Michelle.
Further along is a card from lovely Christine.
I do love my bloggy friends.
