Last summer I showed you this
lovely hanger given to me by a friend and made by her son. Perfect, as you can see for my swap postcards.
Before Christmas I needed a hanger for my Gail Pan Christmas mini and so I asked if he could make me one to match the card hanger. Well unfortunately Gail Pan will have to wait until next Christmas but meanwhile I have finished my Dawn Hay Preston Bag stitchery and made it into another little mini and here it is on my new mini quilt hanger.
I can assure you that it is a perfect rectangle - unfortunately the angle for photography has distorted it a bit!. Anyway, I love my new hanger and now both hang together on the wall of my 'studio'.
I have signed up for a block of the month! This is a new venture for me but having never, in 35 years of quilting, made a sampler quilt I thought it was about time! I have joined some of the lovely ladies in Our Craft Group and we are going to make a BOM each month this year starting in February. Each of us has chosen a block to make so we should have a good variety.
Last year, having decided that my stash was seriously lacking in pinks, I went mad on a shopping spree in UK buying pink fabrics. So I now have a lovely selection for a pink sampler quilt. Here are my fabrics.
I plan to add in a little more green too.
And finally while we were in UK for Christmas our Grandaughter, aged 5, was 'pretend' sewing costumes for Strictly (with which she was obsessed) using hair clips and dolls pram blankets! So I thought it was about time she did some proper sewing and found a first sewing kit for her to try.
Here she is working on a pencil case
and here with the finished case and a little bag from the same kit.
Hope to see you at Wendy's tomorrow!
