My posting has been very patchy of late and so I have lots of catching up to do. I had a bit of a cancer scare in April and my new motto became " when life throws you curve balls ...... Stitch. "
All is well now, but whist waiting for medical appointments I kept myself busy stitching to keep my mind off things. That's the trouble with being a Registered Nurse, a bit of knowledge is dangerous.
We worry about things others don't even know about. Now I didn't get quite as far as planning the songs for my funeral .... but you get the picture.
Above is a freebie from Plum Street samplers for St. Patrick's Day. I love the hare family and this is the second one in the series I have done.
Next to show off with is my pin up board using hexagons from a Black Bird Designs Book . I thought I had done enough hexies but I was not able to get the recommended size frame here in South Australia so I have had to add another 3 rows to it. Oh well, nearly done.
Lizzie Kate's Green Flip It Series is fun to do. I really love the fun and whimsical designs that Lizzie Kate does. Plus they are quick to stitch up.
This quilt is one have have just finished for my new nephew Blake.
The design is called Birdie Birdie by Ellen MacGregor here in South Australia. I purchased it as a kit so I have no idea what the fabric is. I backed it with very pale blue Minkie which I absolutely adore.
It's so soft and gentle for a baby although I should say the baby's Dad said he wouldn't mind a snuggly in it himself.
For those of you who follow my blog for my running exploits, yes I have continued running over the last few weeks. I will post tomorrow on my latest runs.
