Everything's coming up Roses

I have been super busy making my favourite (well, the current favourite) bag for orders and a birthday present.

May 11th 003

Ivory Roses for Janet (she’s taking it to a ball).

May 11th 006

Red Roses for Christine (a ‘Red Hat’ lady), &

May 11th 004

Burgundy Roses for Lisa, who had a Birthday last Thursday!

Most people know how much I love Babushka/Matryoshka dolls, so it was lovely to actually receive a bag on Mother’s Day with these precious poppet's on the sides. Thank you family xxx

Oh, one last thing before I sign off – I finished my Amy Butler Midwest Modern Triangle-less Zig Zag Quilt last night, YAY!!! I even mitered the borders :)

May 11th 007

We have nicknamed it ‘Gelati’, it has been sent to the quilters and will be ready in plenty of time for Rachel’s 12th birthday in August. I am planning to make some crocheted pillowcases to match it, my Mum will be doing the crochet - I don’t possess the crochet gene.

With Love

The gelati quilt looks amazing Janelle - love the borders - they have finished it off perfectly. It will look fabulous with some matching crocheted pillowcases - lucky Rachel! Your trio of bags look fabulous - I am so pleased with mine and have had many wonderful compliments on it.
