I have been seriously missing some photos in my blogging of recent times. I keep finding strange photos on my camera such as the one of cookie making himself at home on the last quilt I made for my cousins new baby. Today I was doing some mending at the table and he amused himself by batting at the cotton and needle as I tried to sew.
I used a stripey fabric for the binding and quilted it myself with a lovely variegated cotton. Rather than doing boring old stipples I threw in little flowers and when I got to the outer edge I decided to do more of the flowers to finish it off.
My Friend Liz had a birthday recently and she loves crocodiles so I made her one from Jodie from Ric Rac his name is Gulliver and the pattern was really easy to follow. Gulliver came together in no time with only a few mistakes which was my fault. I will make another one of these guys for sure. Need to remember though to buy one of those big needles for doll/bear making though for the legs, using a small needle doesn't cut it.
of course no post is complete without a photo of little Milly. She is a real cutie and I doubt she will get much bigger than this. I think I will buy her a coat and applique the words "I am a Jack Russell" I'm always being asked if she is a Chihuahua. I told someone she was a miniature dingo and they believed me!!
here's a close up of my quilting.
I haven't been riding this week as I have contracted a lurgy from the froglet, so didn't even go to the gym today. No quilting tonight either, will stay at home and have an early night.
