Having told myself I would update weekly ( I figured this meant that no matter what ,I would stitch like crazy each day ,no matter how bad the house or the garden looked!! ) 2 months have flown by. But I do have a really good excuse......I've been very busy becoming a Nana for the 2nd time. Maggie Grace was born 3and a half weeks early on the 22nd Feb.We were lucky Mum and Bub very healthy. Maggie is tiny and just back to birth weight this week.Sooooo cute. Oh I can feel another Quilt coming on!!! Almost 11 year old Jake is very proud of his baby sister. Life is great and now (hopefully) back to what we call normal.
We had our Secret Sewing Thursday on the 4th March at Barb's .Barb's show and tell was her Antique Wedding Sampler (AWS).The only words to describe it are stunningly spectacular.It is a series of pieced& appliqued blocks with lots of Broderie Perse. Barb's Broderie Perse has to be seen to be believed. She even changed the colour of the thread every time there was a change in the fabric shades. Just beautiful.We are all gobsmacked!! Hopefully it will be finished in time for the Quilts in the Barn at Wonga Park mid October this year ( those who read Deb's blog Needles, Sticks and Hooks will know how excited we were to be the exhibitors at the next show ) Photo shows our very proud Barb with Merri taking in the quilt.
