Back to Fabric and Thread

I mentioned in a post just before we began our trip about a lovely customer of mine who lives in Washington, Mary. Mary had bought "Down Reindeer Lane" and had sent me photos of the completed quilt and was going to enter the quilt in "The Covington" quilt show and guess what.....FIRST PLACE!!! I am really excited for Mary and I must say quite chuffed for my little reindeers. Apparently lots of comments about their sweet little faces. This is a photo Mary sent me with blue ribbon attached.
Mary also was successful with another quilt a gorgeous "Grandmother's Fan" and won BEST IN SHOW.
So huge big Congrats to Mary and I loved that she shared it with me. These are two photos she sent of her fan quilt.
More pretty blue ribbons....
Well I am trying hard to get back into the swing of things and slowly my house is being divested of it's dusty coat and the van is clean and packed up all ready for another adventure down the track.
I have managed to complete the last bit of the stitching on my Christmas Quilt and now fabric choosing and how to put it together are on the agenda.
So with the stitching done on this number I could finally hush up the little "mouse" in my sewing bag and she is feeling a very pleased little "Merry Mistlemouse" being again the centre of attention.
I drew this little girl on a whimsy and I have to say I am really enjoying how she is evolving and she just seemed to have a life of her own.
I also wanted to show you a little sneak peek of some secret sewing business that I have also been doing.
Wonder what it is? Where is it going? Who is it for???? Hmmmm?
Have a wonderful day everyone.
Blessings Michelle xxx
