Its been busy round these parts, gadding about here there and everywhere,
there's been quilting,
and then the icky lurgy arrived ... we're still negotiating its departure,
definitely outstayed its welcome!
but I did manage a finish
one on my FAL list for Q2 no less!
Those lovely Aurifil 12 wt Threads and that gorgeous Irish Linen ...
Quilted and bound,
and I spent a happy car journey sewing on buttons,
we tried to go round the block several times so I could get it finished before we got to Susan's for the Brit Bee Meet Up ...
but have you tried sewing buttons on in the car!
so I sat quietly stitching away, and the lovely lady who this was for arrived,
and I was still stitching away .. .
but finally it was finished.
and I am delighted with it!
and the funny thing is, when I stood back and looked at the quilting,
I had always planned to do feathers around a heart,
but to me, all I could see was a set of Angel wings ...
and that is so very fitting for this cushion now resides down south with
a very special Angel friend indeed!
So, despite being quiet around these parts, I have, wherever possible been busy.
so one more finish on my Q2 Finish Along List
(I do believe that is 4/7)
