I had mail

In mail today received my first month of a Ten month BOM The Pie and Tart Club by Sue Daley

Wrapped in great polka dot paper .......

Look whats inside ...........fabrics choices are fabulous

The last couple of night because of the heat ....I have been finishing off a small lap quilt I stitched during the Christmas / New Year period
so hand stitching daisy pattern over the quilt.
Now you have to have a bit of a chuckle
take in consideration it has been between 40 - 46o Celsius the last seven days (HOT HOT)
I am sitting inside of an evening with air-conditioning on
hand quilting a quilt on my lap (lol)


Dear Son number 2 comes home and Mum one of my friends saw one of the bags you have made(I have lost count of how many I have made) She was wondering If you could make her a bag .....her favourite colour is purple..........so I made a quick basic pattern Last night and DS past in on and she is totally wrapped...........

Until next time ..........now off to do some more daisy stitching on my lap quilt .........I just love daisies so, simple, plain and basic .........unfortunately due to the heat my daisies in the garden are not looking to good........

Isn't that what Mom's are for? Making things when our kids ask. :o) The small glimpse of your pattern looks fun. I enlarged the photo and it was still just a sneak peek. Looking forward to seeing the progress.
