Pin Cushion

Well as you have probably all gathered by now, I have a terrible bug called Quilting  LOL!!

It's terrible because it runs away with time and money, but what the heck I LOVE IT

This pin cushion is done using the Cathedral Window quilting design, very pretty and fairly quick to do.
I love easy, and quick haha!!

Anniversary Card

I made this card for one of my lovely step daughters and her husband for their anniversary later this month.
I used Ann Paper Art pattern from Hobby Journal 83 for this one.  I put silver mirri card in the centre of the inner heart, but unfortunately it didn't show up well in the photo.
This is a superb pattern you can do so much with it.  Round the heart shape I stitched it at 1 -12 and it has given it a lovely thick line, I like the effect, hope you do.

Birthday Card for my daughter

This is the card I recently made for my daughters birthday. I used Anns Paper Art Pattern a647
for it. 
The next Birthday card is for my 25 year old Granddaughter I used Anns pattern a726 for this one, after stitching the rose I glittered it all with Glamour Dust which is a beautiful fine glitter.
Thank you for looking

My first Quillow

Hi Everyone
Well I have now finished my first ever Quillow.
I thoroughly enjoyed making it, I machined the blocks together and then hand stitched all the quilting. It took quite a while to do, but I am so happy with the result.
The first picture shows it folded up as a cushion and then when unfolded it opens up to a lap quilt, I have draped it over my 2 seater settee so you can judge the finished size.
I hope you like it.
I have got 3 more to make, one of them is going to be my next project at the course I am doing at Puddleducks of Sevenoaks which starts up on the 19th April. It will have all different designs on it, I expect they will be more complicated that this first one.
Hope you like it
