How I wish it was summer and warm again…
But it's just to face the fact that leaves are falling and winter is coming …
SIGH!
 
This summer offered cold and windy weather, mixed with splashes of rain…
So most of the warm summer days was spent outside…
and for me it included secret sewing…
 
Bought myself a nice PINK little box to organise my applique stuff…
 
I have been annoyed with myself always losing needles, scissors and thimbles…
so with this one..I do hope it's going to be better..
 
My secret sewing was a pattern by April Rosenthal
The Dahlia pattern…
I did sew this one on machine and it was not hard
but not the easiest either…but FUN… :)
I think it turned out just wonderful…
 
Had fun again..trying to fussy cut some pieces…
making new holes in my fabric.. ­čśë
When finished… I needed to decide on quilting…
always such a BIG decision for me…
don't know why it always makes me want to put quilts away!
But this little one needed circular quilting…
and I just love how it turned out…
and it just got finished in time for my trip to Birmingham this year
and to be gifted to my lovely friend Shirley Sherratt ….
 
Was to take a photo of the quilt in Birmingham…
but my memory slipped as always!!
See you soon… :)

  4. Hello my beautiful friend. Just seeing your post brings back such lovely memories of our few days in Birmingham and my wonderful gift that my little granddaughter says is the sun. I love the thought and detail that went into the making of it. I am one very lucky person.xxx
