Is it just me or did someone lose February??
I am sure I have only just mastered writing dates like 04/02/13 - how can it be that I am now writing 04/03/13??
I was constructive in Feb ( I think) unfortunately most of what I did is still unfinished.
Let's have a look.
This is the Lucy's Crab Shack Layer cake quilt with extra length, now waiting for quilting, it is destined to be a care quilt.
This is my February front wreath decor. A tribute to Valentines, Day but focused on the greater things of faith, hope and love. ( Um mm just realised I am now in March, might have to change it again.)
A wonderful parcel I received as a prize.
This came from the lovely Sharon of Lilabelle Lane I was so excited. Sharon had hosted a giveaway for a Pattern from Thimble Blossoms. The lovely Camille has a blog entitled "Simplify" and she designs amazing patterns, so that was all the motivation I needed to enter the giveaway. Sharon asked us which Thimble Blossoms pattern we would like if we won, my answer was "I can't decide, so when I win, surprise me".
He, he, he...... Like I expected the email saying I had won. Yahoo. I was super excited. So Sharon did surprise me.
The chosen pattern is "Round and round". Included in the parcel were 2 adorable pincushions made by Sharon herself. That turtle is made from tiny tiny hexagons that are stitched by hand. Way too cute to put pins in. E (my almost 8 year old) keeps stealing the turtle as he has a thing for animals.
There is also a baby charm pack. The squares are only 2.5". Adorable hey??
Thank you so much Sharon. I am touched.
Now onto other progress.
This quilt has 'come out of ' the scraps in the patchwork room. I am seeing boy care quilt.
And I finally managed to stitch faces onto E's kangaroos. I am relieved they are done and E is glad they are finished. They do look cuter with faces.
Well that is one OPAM for Feburary, a bit of progress and one happy prize winning me.
