Do you remember this ?
Started about 18 months ago and abandoned as I wasn't enjoying the piecing. I really loved the fabrics though and had cut about 100 melon shapes. So I had a re-think and with a bit of fusible web and some machine applique it turned into this.

I do very much and am so glad I decided not to bin the whole thing. Here is a close-up of the border fabric. All from stash I might add. Another one in the "To Quilt" pile. One day I will get round to these - when I get a new quilting machine perhaps.
I have been working away in the evenings on some hexagons which I love. Just want to put a few pieces together before I show you.
I have also done a bit of baby-napping - lol !
This little cutie is the son of friends of ours. 10 weeks old and making me broody - well just a bit. I've borrowed him a few times to give his parents a little break. Jess took these photos of him on my bed on top of my old pyramid quilt. He has his own quilt on it's way - the top is done and I will try and get it quilted soon.
I received my Spring Swap package yesterday and can't wait to show off my goodies - next time !
Jason and I are real home-birds and rarely have a night out but last week we went to a surprise party for one of my cousins. A new outfit was called for so visits to clothes shops ensued. Not my favourite thing at all. It got me to thinking are you a true quilter if in an emergency situation you would save your fabric stash over the contents of your wardrobe - lol ! I know which I'd do..
Have a great Easter and try and get a few stitches done xx
