Today Christine and I are setting off to rendezvous with Shez at Melbourne Airport. It's the beginning of Let's Get Stitched and I'm very excited. Little Henry is also coming to stay for a week so while I'm at the Let's Get Stitched events it will be a boys only household at the house on the side of the hill. Here's Henry (with my lovely Sammy) having his very first drive of a miniature train at the Box Hill Miniature Railway.
A wonderful envelope full of happiness arrived at my house last week. Two more divine Michelle Palmer originals. I could not resist these cuties.
I discovered Michelle's work a couple of years ago when I was reading Shell's beautiful blog, Raspberry Rabbits. If you can spare some time it's always fabulous to hop around on Michelle's Down the Rabbit Hole blog list.
Do you ever visit Lauren and Jessi Jung's fabulous blog? There are lots of fabulous free projects shared with us all. I thought this little cushion is very cute and a bit different.
She has a very sweet personality and now that my dear little Matilda is losing her sight and hearing, Pippi acts as her guide dog, shepherding her to the back door if Tildy wants to go out and sticking like glue on a walk to make sure Tildy doesn't wander away. Pippi melts my heart she is so sweet
leave her alone in my sewing room, as I did yesterday (I thought she was soundly sleeping on the day bed)
and she becomes Pippi the Destroyer. Yesterday alone she got two machine threads and one unfortunate perle cotton.
Yesterday I was having a cuppa and browsing around one of my favourite blogs, Quilt Inspiration, mainly looking at the pictures of the amazing quilts from the Feb 2014 American Quilters Society Show, when I spotted this fabulous pattern and thought you might like it too.
