A dear friend gifted me the two beautiful shoe blocks, I decided that I must put it together into something simple and NOT A HANDBAG... So....my sewing room is down 5 steps off the kitchen and leads to the garage..so I have this wonderful little bit of wall that I decided to turn into the WALL OF FAME...there are now two items (havent photographed the other one yet) ((for shame))...but I will...
Anyway this one looks great if I do say so myself, but more than that I am happy that a gift has been put together and displayed, and I get to look at it every day!
I have hand quilted around the flowers, shoes and the scallop edge, just set it off nice.

Ok, the colour of this photo isnt great, however Its one that I love, oh just realized you might need to stand the computer on its side to see the birdies...but thats ok, just pretend your looking up into the trees :))
I made this for my new granddaughters cot! It is 'inspired' by Kellie's quilt and the wallhanging I have already made, found here! I have also used Melly's idea of format from her book Kaleidoscope.

She is kinda cute, but is it just me who sees a similarity in hair style to John Travolta in Pulp Fiction? Or is it Quentin Tanantino overload!

Madame Unicorn (aka Pegasus/unicorn) sitting on Brads new quilt, all quilted!
Now I think I have around 200 more items to do..lol

This is for my son's 30th birthday, I have it laying over the kitchen table with thousands of pins at the moment, and needed a bleeding finger break!! ouchies... I am trying to decide "in the ditch" or all over meander..I have a wonderful varigated brown/cream thread, so think meander would look great with the thread, in the ditch will not show the threads wonderful colours..so does that mean I just made up my mind?

Tis finished!!!

Soon to be born granddaughter #2's wall hanging...pattern here...I have enlarged the entire pattern to fit the area where it is to hang. The original pattern is for a cushion. I think it worked well, and when I give it to Daughter-in-Law I will take another photo of it hanging in its spot.
Ahhhh it feels great to complete things!
