BabY BoX

The box of gifts for my DIL's sister has now been handed over.
I added quite a few more little items as well as the other gifts I made which I've already shown on this blog... but I did add a BaBy PLaY RuG for some tummy time in a few months.
It's a cute panel for a "boy" so I just added some FMQ around each object. SimPLe but EFFecTiVe.
Now to await "his" arrival any day now.

I managed to get a LiTTLe stitching done last night.  How about YoU ?
I took the family out for dinner so by the time I returned to the VaN... most of the night had passed...
but ANY stitching is an achievement isn't it.
I hope you all had an EnJoYabLe night as well.
I'll be around over this L-O-N-G weekend to visit.  See you then...

DD1 wanted to add some CuTe animals to 2 cushions she owned... so I appliqued a Giraffe & a Elephant to one of them... & then a Lion & a Zebra to another.
They are now sitting in the "reading" corner of my GS2 room.

Sept 1XiaM

I managed to finish off the Wonky Wonky Little Star table runner that was sewn in Bathurst a little while back. I quilted the secondary pattern (white fabric) with a shadow line so the main pattern (coloured stars) was pushed to the front. I am very happy with the look of it too.
This table runner measures 35inch x 15inch & is now ready for the gift box.
Pattern by Blueberry Patch.
