I have posted this quilt for Angie, who admires Bronwyn Hayes.
I got the pattern from Australian Country Threads Vol 3. No 10, & I really just started out doing the small stitcheries on some old plain linen serviettes, then decided to make the whole quilt. I really enjoyed the process, & have used the stichery patterns on all sorts of items, from bags, to wallhangings, to small pictures to frame. Plus the applique cat for SIL, of course. Thank you Bronwyn for sharing the patterns in the Magazine!
The other 2 small quilts I made from patterns in Patchwork & Stitching Magazine, Vol.5. No.1. I just loved the embroidery combined with the patches on the Sweet Love Quilt, which was designed by Zoe Clifton.
The Rocking Horse was featured in the same issue of Patchwork & Stitching, designed by Joanna Perrett, & she called it Rock-A-Bye Baby. My friend K fell in love with the Rocking Horse quilt & bought the blue one, along with another one I made in a different colourway, for her 2 daughters, for her grandsons. She bought the little Sweet Love for herself, & has it on her bedroom wall.
I have also made a small bag called Heart of Friendship, designed by Ann Dimmer, for my daughter from the same issue, so I certainly made good use of that mag! Sorry I dont have a pic of the little bag- daughter just loves it & uses it.
I am becoming a good advertiser for these mags arent I?? Perhaps I should seek some Spotters rewards.
Small Grandson had his birthday- even ate a piece of Pizza! & some cake & some green Jelly, which he seems to love for some reason.
The only photograph I managed to get is very grainy & dark- not sure what went wrong.
He had a very happy day, & he was very happy with his little BBQ set we gave him.
After the hot weather we had been having it decided to cloud over & we have some rain today- YAY for the garden! It is nice & cool too.
