Frogs, farmyard friends, some excitement and some sadness...

Gosh, it has been a busy time here and getting time to post has been very tricky.  I quilted this lovely wee cot quilt for Rosie last week.  She wanted some basic custom quilting and it has come up really nicely.  A bit tricky with the embroidery blocks as they have a thickish pellon behind them.  Ruler work was a bit dicey.

I used So Fine 402 Cream which is one of my favourite colours.

They are such cute looking animals.

Each one is beautifully hand stitched.

Don't their patches make them look extra cute as well?  Rosie just wanted a large heart in the four patch.  It worked well.

My friend Lorraine came through on Friday to pick up her gorgeous quilt which you can see here 
and brought her froggie quilt up for a little "basting" which turned into quilting the borders and sashing for her lol.  It was such fun though and Lorraine will finish it off herself.

Yummy colours, all batiks.

Used a lovely King Tut in jade greens but have forgotten the number.

It was a great way to spend a Friday afternoon, and Lorraine did bring lunch!  Yummy cottage pie.

The sad part of this post is on Thursday we had to say goodbye to our old cat Oscar.  We adopted him when we moved to this house 10 years ago and he has had a good time with us.  Age caught up with him.
Oscar (the light ginger cat) was good mates with Tyson.

Farewell old friend.  Life will be different.

To makes us smile, isn't this a gorgeous picture of my great granddaughter Tiana who lives in Perth, Australia.  I have yet to meet this precious wee girl, but gosh, she looks so like her Dad.  She was out with her Nana, my daughter Janeen. It just does not feel right saying all that...I feel far too young for those titles to be

Then the said Tyson cat decided to try and fit into the folded towel...

I wonder if anyone can see me?   Hmmmm.....

And now for the EXCITEMENT!!!!!.  We sold our house tonight and will be on the move!!! Oh my gosh and the scariest part is moving day is only TWO WEEKS AWAY.  Screaming here and running around in circles.  What have we done?  On top of that I have a quilting weekend at the shop ALL THIS WEEKEND!  Oh well, it will make for a very interesting two weeks.  Just dont expect too many posts please friends, and oh yes, did I mention I still have customer quilts to get done in amongst all this.  There  might be a few night shifts about to happen here.

However, we are very thankful for answered prayers and things will work out. They always do.

Take care and see you again soonish...
