Sam's Quilt.....

Do you remember a few weeks ago I bought this fabric to make our eldest granddaughter a new quilt. Well this is where I'm at!
I cut all the fat quarters into squares, joined them together randomly and then cut out these daisy shapes. I have stitched them on where ever they landed so to speak, when it's been quilted I will put bright yellow yo-yo's in the centre of each white daisy.
Then I put a 2 inch border of white with pink squares in the corners, a 1 inch blue border then the final pink 6 inch border. I think I'm going to put some stitching on the white border, not flowers, perhaps words?

This is my newest project, I started this after I finished Mum's table runner. I just loved the colours of that so much that I decided that I needed a quilt in them. Then I had these big stitchery patterns that I got from
'Chestnut Junction', I had used one in my giveaway runner and another two in Mums runner, I think I have nine all together.

I think it should look really good when its finished.

Yesterday, while I was slightly incapacitated and feeling sorry for myself I made this 'Cinderberry' needle case and scissor charm (sitting in front of the telly for most of the time I might add).

I changed the pattern slightly - as you do - and put a blanket needle pad in the middle, added a bead charm on the front and was quite pleased with the finished article.
At least I didn't waste my whole day watching Lifestyle Food, a couple of DVD's and a couple of episodes of Baxter!!
Back to normal tomorrow, off to Geelong to see Mum & Dad, do a bit of shopping and pick up the terrible two for a 'Nana Hit'. Only just over a week and I get to fly to W.A. and have a huge 'Nana hit' with the famous four. Can't beat that.
