It's in the Hoop!

Well folks my Deux Rouenneriers  Dresden plate quilt is in the hoop and quilting has begun....yay!
It is nice to be working those little stitches into the quilt finally...well not tooo little I have noticed lately but I love the process and I am satisfied with the quilt staying together.
We have another special birthday in our family today. Our youngest Grandson Cooper is turning 5. Cooper is our "let's go!!!!!!" little man.

Big birthday hugs little man...hope you have a wonderful day!
Love you lots and lots xxx
I also have some Show & Tell....
Joy from Bundaberg has been taking part in my Calendar Bears Stitch-a-long in Country Threads Magazine.
She has done a lovely job and even has her borders on...
Thanks for sharing them Joy. Your blocks are looking great and you are keeping on top of them all. I am so glad that you are enjoying them so much.
My dear friend Fiona from Bubzrugz  has been keeping me company while I stitch my Country at Heart Alphabet blocks. Fiona is stitching my Bear Alphabet...they are looking so pretty!
I just love them....this little girl was a favourite when I drew them...
Thanks Fiona for letting me share them and even though I am letting the side down this end...thanks for stitching along with me. Your blocks are lovely.
I have finished 2 blocks but will save them for next post.
Another "just because I like it" piccie.....love Brunswick Heads and love being silly too! It's so good for your soul....
Enjoy your hump day all.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  9. Always lots of loveliness on your blog - the dresden quilt is looking lovely and I think hand basting for hand quilting is the go too - though I do neither!!

  10. Everyone needs a little silly sometimes - it's good for you! Wow, all those bears - what's the collective noun for bears, I wonder? Does the Dresden Quilt have a name that you have given it, not the fabric line name?
