Its really nice to have a few finishes to show, this table quilt I made some time ago..... a long time ago actually...... I took it on the Tamborine retreat to quilt and I'm happy its finally finished, doesn't look too bad even if I say so myself.
Here is my lovely g/daughter Corinne wearing her quilt, I had this one machine quilted and Corinne was tickled pink with it.
" Sparkling Gemstones"
I also had this one quilted at the same time as it has come out a treat too, both quilts are from a book called "Jelly Roll Quilts".
Keep watching this space as I have a few more things I need to show and add to my OPAM list.
Then last but not least here are the piccies I promised of my fantastic raffle prize I won at the Red Hatters Retreat I went to last month. I am going to another retreat next month so I hope to put it to good use then.
I was lucky enough to go on a terrific retreat with my craft friends, it was very timely for me as I really needed the break and to have a lot of laughs with great company. Here are all my bits and pieces that I took with me .... not sure I really needed all of this but you just never know. We all had the best time and lucky me... I won the raffle..... it is a "Sewezi " portable sewing table but we haven't put it together yet so no piccies at the moment, it was just the pick-me-up I needed so look out retreats here I come table and all.
