Here is some of my secret sewing which a secret no more. Let me show you what I used some of my precious stash of Bliss fabric for.
I have been blogging for 6 years or so and in that time have made lots of wonderful friendships - they may be with people I have yet to meet - someday - but are none the less special for that. One of these has been with Karol-Ann and over the years we have swapped many emails along with fabric, gifts for each other and our children and so on. We have nearly got to meet several times but not quite managed it - I'm sure we'll get there in the end - lol ! Anyway Karol-Ann was recently very clever and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl ( actually on my birthday ) and so I wanted to make a quilt for her. Karol-Ann and I both share a love of hexagons ( her rose hexagon quilt is stunning ) and so it was the obvious choice. Here it is
and a close-up.
Hand and machine pieced and mainly hand quilted - the border was machine quilted though as I ran out of time and we all know babies wait for no-one !!
I had the most lovely thankyou email which I have saved. Karol-Ann has posted pictures on her blog of the little lady herself wrapped in my quilt which made it all worthwhile. What a little beauty she is - bless.
More secret sewing has been going on but this I can't reveal yet as it it for my SSCS - almost done which is a good thing as mailing time is almost here.
My latest project is going to involve a bag of leftover half square triangles which yesterday looked like this
stay tuned for this - I have a plan.
And also today I bumped into my oldest friend ( we met on the first day of school when we were 4 years old ) She had a baby girl last year - also coincidentally born on my birthday - whose name is Charlotte. She was born when my back pain was really bad and so I never got around to making her anything. Obviously that will have to be rectified too - best get busy.
Take care xx
