Another Special Day

Today is another special birthday celebration for my sweet friend Melody from the House on the Side of the Hill. Melody is on the right with myself and the lovely Christine at Patchwork Teahouse at Warburton in Victoria last year where I was lucky enough to meet Melody in person. What a treat!
She is such a fun, generous, caring and inspirational person. Big hugs Mel I hope you have a simply wonderful day just like yourself. Pop over and leave her a greeting. I know she would love it.
Yesterday I banished myself to my sewing room to tie myself to the sewing machine. You see I don't love sewing the way a lot of you girls do....I love stitching which is different. I was very pleased with my efforts as I now have all but one mini for my stand finished.
I just have to get a wriggle on with "Winter" and then it can go into pattern form. I have wanted a "Seasons" set of little quilts for ages but hadn't seen any I liked but the mini stand is perfect and now it isn't naked anymore since I de-Christmased.
I loved creating these. I also found I got to use up some left over bits of favourite fabrics to make the borders. So now I can look at them regularly when it's their turn.
Thanks girls for your inspiration to dive into mini ownership. LOL! It was good to rest my fingers yesterday as well but "Strawbs" and I will be back together tonight, hoop in hand.
Enjoy your Sunday.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  6. I think these stands are a wonderful idea. They have given us a great option to display small items. It is also an alternative to having to turn stitcheries into bigger quilts. I really like the idea of only have to make a single small item.
    Your Seasons minis are looking wonderful.

  7. I am with you Michelle, I could stitch till the cows come home but sewing at the machine doesn't come as easily.
    Love your mini's. You have done such a beautiful job. So perfect on your little stand too.
