Orchids for Sylvia

Another project completed & posted.

This "Orchid" bag was made for Paul's Aunty Syliva's 80th birthday. The orchids were photographed in Jill's (Paul's Mum) garden.

a UFO has been repurposed

After 6 or 8 years my Log Cabin quilt has been re-purposed.
This quilt was made with great intentions and I loved the 6 individual blocks, but as a project from my beginner days, the seams did not sit properly, the blocks were not square and some of the seams did not even catch.

However I loved it, so this weekend I turned 2 of the squares into cushion covers for the big continental pillows.
They look fabulous on my lounge, but they are not for me, they are off to Emerald to live with friends there.
After taking the photo, I realised the rooster needed an eye and some straw around his feet, so I have stitched those, but didn't photograph them.
So this project has been progress on UFO and a completed OPAM.

A Grandma bag for Nanna

In the last week I have made a new "Grandma" bag for Nanna Blakey.
It has photos of all of the family on it and it will replace her worn out "Grandma" bag that we gave Nanna about 3 years ago.
I hope she likes it.

It even has a magnetic closure & internal pocket.

I am very proud of my efforts & I know she'll love it (because I made it).

Challenge Complete

Yes, those of you who know we well will be in major shock. Yes I have completed my challenge 6 months early.

It is currently winging it's way to Brisbane for the Ekka. And as it is a challenge & I am not allowed to reveal it prior to the challenge date & have posted snippets of what it looks like.
(Yes I know it is going to the Ekka, but I figure no one in the challenge will see it)

So I hope you are excited as I am.
Another completed project & the entire thing made in less than a month.
