Due to some hard work by my friend Fiona @bubzrugz I was able to gift my dear daughter her quilt on her birthday. Even though much complaining and some tweaking about the assembly of this quilt, it meant a lot to stitch it for her.

Owls, Hares and Teacups
Hello friends, I know time doesn't really go faster but...we are in March! Both my quilt projects are coming along and giving me enjoyment. I have now completed the centre panel for Gossip in the Garden that I am stitching with my friend Fiona @bubzrugz and we may have coerced...I mean encouraged a couple of other friends to join us. I have loved this pattern for so long and am loving stitching it. This centre panel was what originally attracted me to Gossip in the Garden.
And being the strange little person I am, meaning and connection always attracts me first. If you will permit me a little wander off the path.
This block reminded me instantly of all the precious time our family spent with my Grandmother on the open front verandah of her workers cottage, shaded by a huge poinciana tree....

Down the Rabbit Hole
Hello friends. I had hoped to be back here before now but there is still a lot going on in the background. Life is just messy sometimes!
Do you ever find yourself travelling along nicely with your projects and then...wham! You spy something delightful and down the rabbit hole you go! I follow an incredibly talented lady called Louise May Watson on IG. She is artist, nature lover and stitcher (no wonder I love her posts) anyway she makes these gorgeous little accordion books. Stitched covers and a little drawing on each page. Well I have been itching to have a go! Soooo down the rabbit hole I went.....
My stitched covers, front and back! I chose my own little Wren design to stitch for the front cover. I stitched on a piece of Osneberg fabric I found.
