This is block 7, still very slowly slogging away. I have changed some of the blocks a bit and I guess thats why its taking me so long but not to worry I'm past half way now..... woohoo.... only 5 more to go.
These are my new girls..... Melody and Sewing Keeper...... both patterns came from "Stitchers Dream Day Out" 2006 by Debbie Magee .... yes yes I know .. took awhile but made at last. I was waiting for Tereasa to finish hers and then our piccies would be put on the blogs at the same time but she is dragging her heels a bit.... boy will I get a tongue lashing for that comment lol.
I think my camera skills need improving but these will just have to do for the time being.
This is a project I have been doing for such a long time but I gave myself a small challenge to get it done and I'm now happy to say I've finished..... yahooooo I painted the box quite a while ago ( couple of years) and all I needed to do was collect the baby memories together and give it to my daughter.... Elizabeth. In the yellow box is a collection of paintings... early school books... school reports and any special things I could find from Liz's childhood days and in the book like box are baby cards, baby book etc. My other daughter ... Heather .... has one and I still have to do one for my son.... Robert... but boys dont really care much about that kind of stuff so I have plenty of time to do that. Gosh I feel good about this, I'm going to visit Liz tomorrow, she will get a surprise as she has been waiting for so long.
I'm a Mum to 1 fantastic son and 2 beautiful daughters I'm also Nan to 5 super grandchildren and not forgetting my Hubby...Gavan of 52 years. We have a cute Jack Russell dog "Pippa" who is the boss in our home.
I enjoy lots of crafts but embroidery would be my first love followed closely by quilting, patchwork and the list goes on. I like to have a go at new crafts when I can. We have lived in Jimboomba QLD for 27 years. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog.
