Some Recent Finishes.


 Its the first day it has been dry enough to hang this finished quilt on the clothes line for a photo.

The quilt called "Theses are a Few of My Favourite Things," is a real mix of lovely fabrics, fun ideas, hand drawn objects, fabrics coloured with Intense pencils  and lots of hand appliqué  ( broderie purse ) pieces cut from fabrics in my stash. It was fun to make, especially  collecting the fabrics with the help of my sewing friends. It is very busy so just a simple purple border was all it needed to be complete. The back fabric ( chocolates ) also feature on the front. I made label by hand using the pencils.

 A couple of close ups. 

 I have also finished the 3rd little felt bird. Its a Banded Dotterel ( brown and fawn )., The others are dark blue / black a NZ Robin and the green shades  for the Bellbird. They each have a proper feather under their wings.
