Ta Da!

My French General Dresden's quilt top is finally finished!!!! All the little birdies around the border are very happy feasting on berries and all is right with the world! Time to break out the quilting hoop and get it quilted..
 It's a bit crinkly....needs a press! I always think about that AFTER I take the photo!
One very happy little stitcher here! Last night I worked on this little chap....
I can now get back to my Remembering Roma quilt and know I won't be stealing fabrics from the Dresden's. Some EPP coming up.
I know we have all probably had a bit of sugar overload in the last little while but I have to share something sweet with you. My DD loves to make cupcakes and loves decorating them. This week she went along to a little work shop and popped in to show me what she got up to.
I love the little Tutu ones....so gorgeous!
I shall leave you with an early bloomer in my garden I snapped yesterday.
This is my "Steve" bottlebrush that I planted in memory of Steve Irwin when he was killed. It was a slow starter but is the most beautiful bloomer now and such gorgeous brushes all tipped in gold.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your lovely encouraging comments about my drawings, being patient when I dive off the stitching path and for the piccies you gorgeous people xxxx
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Namaste and Blessings

  9. Wooohooo! It's finished! You must be so proud. I am looking forward to seeing how you quilt it now. Decisions, decisions on quilting patterns. Love your little stitchery, as usual. You always come up with some very cute things. Sugar, well I am not supposed to have any at all. I did have a couple of pieces of choccie over Easter . My diet is soooo restricted but I am a lot better for it. Keep these lovely pics coming. Hope you are feeling a lot better since your last post. Angel hugs.
