My FRIENDS swap package is finished, packaged and posted. Sorry Candace that it’s running late. The postman said it will be with you between 3 and 10 days. I wont open my package until you receive yours – then we’ll pretend its an early Christmas and open them together.

Here are a few photos of the gifts I made.

I also stopped in quickly at Spotlight this morning and picked up some gorgeous yellow flannelet fabric. I’m really looking forward to starting our baby cousin Annabelle’s quilt this weekend. I will post photos as I potter along.

Happy quilting!

I have been working on a new project for my FRIENDS swap partner Candace so I wont show you the final product.

I’m still not confident with what letter this falls under but I’m leaning towards ‘S’ – Sunny. For obvious reasons.

The pattern is based on Elizabeth Hartman’s pattern from her fabulous blog Oh Fransson!

Three blocks…. a few more to go. It’s been a delight to be reunited with my sewing machine.

Sorry about the blurry images – my lenses needs a clean.

More project fun to follow.

I’m loving this little owl. I think most modern quilters are over the owl phase… I’m not quite there yet.

This little owl is sitting in the centre of an 11 inch square block… any ideas what I should do with it? I’m thinking an owl in each corner of a baby quilt – or sitting on an applique branch surrounded by colourful leaves.

Here’s a mini tutorial to show you how I got here. After sketching the little owl to the size I wanted, I drew the separate images into workable pieces onto cardboard.

Then cut them out and put it all together.

Then iron your chosen pieces of fabric onto Heat’n’Bond paper. Cut the material out and piece the little owl together. Do you like our funky ironing board cover?

Then piece the little guy together.

Very cute – very fun!

Have a lovely evening!

Aqua Runner

I made this table runner for my Aunt who has a reeeeaaaaalllyyy long kitchen table and a large aqua coloured wall in the background.

I was inspired by Lizzie’s table runner at My Loose Threads.

I used an iron on transfer to leave this message which took a couple of practices to get right.

I wrapped this off ready to post this morning.

I’ve organised a mini sewing bee this coming week! I better bake something too 🙂
