I'm a member of an online group "Friends in Stitching" and last year we had a BOM with members taking turns choosing blocks, so now mine is patiently waiting for quilting. I hope to do it next week as today I ordered a new sewing machine, I've been eyeing it off for quite a while now and should get it next Tuesday.... I'm so excited..... I'll pop a photo as soon as it comes.
The lovely Sarah who organises our FIS site sent each member this great quilt label and card ( which has a lovely verse inside) with a teabag, a very nice surprise which I'll be happy to put on my quilt when finished.
Thank you Sarah.
I've also finished another block of my Blossom Lane quilt.... 2 more to go.
Here is my bear "Chloe" that Teresa made for me for christmas, she also gave me a lovely doiley to make a dress for her..... the brooch belonged to me sister ..June... and I've been waiting for a special project to put it on and this is it.... special gift from a special friend......perfect.
Another block finished for the Lynette Anderson BOM.
Another project in progress is "Crazy Patch Christmas " quilt by Lynette Anderson, lots to go on this one so it might be slow going but steady I hope.
I also bought myself a couple of pressies.... naughty but nice..... from Lynette Anderson these great little wooden sewing tools and I got my blog put into book form so I guess one could say ...... I'm published hehehehe .... its just the first couple of years of blogging so I will order another one soon, it is lovely to have the book to look back on.
and last but not least.... my lovely g/daughter Corinne spent 3 weeks in Japan and has given me and Pop a couple of great gifts..... obviously the whiskey is for Pop and the others are mine, she knows how much I love Pooh Bear so he is now sitting on my bedside chest of drawers, the plate and Pooh are from Disneyland, love the little Japanese bear dressed in all the traditional clothes..... thank you Corinne I love them.
