So exciting, the very first thing to be spotted when entering the Cottage today was 'Love is all Around', Sheila's quilt for her DS and DIL, we have seen some of the blocks in progress as Sheila worked on them with a deadline in mind, the quilt is for her DS's 40th Birthday and will be presented to him at a family celebration.
Top Left is Crazy Patch, not sure if Sheila said for a crazy Mother or a Mother who is hooked on Crazy, but it is full of love, see the cute line of machined hearts?
Center is the Turtle for the favourite family holiday spot of Bargara and top Right, the gum leaf, is for Dad the Forrester
Sheila is not a hand worker, although 25 years ago she said she would never make another Drunkards Path so maybe sometime in the distant future this too could change, but she did hand stitch the binding down......the whole 9 meters of it!
Betty had several quilts for us to drool over, firstly the finished Teddy Bears, that we have seen in the works
Wendy spotted this really cute yarn and just had to give it a go, she knitted 2 rows of the yarn with the bobbles and then 2 rows of plain yarn alternatively, it is for her Grandson, Wendy was a bit disappointed that the pink was so obvious but we all came to the conclusion that the little Guy will just love it to bits as the texture is so soft and yummy. Marcia suggested a flannel blue border to bunk up the blue content, we will see, probably next week at the rate that Wendy zooms along.
Of course while we are all having fun down the back, there was some hard work being done in the other rooms, signing in the piles, yep piles of quilts, runners, wall hangings, bags and numerous other goodies for the fair.
Maureen took a 2 second break to smile for the camera and then tell me to go play somewhere else or she would give me a job..........I was gone in a flash.
And then it was time for Arvo Tea, just as the hoards arrived to start setting up their tables and goodies for the Easter Fair. It promises to be a beauty...............again..........of course - Just a little biased there folks.
