A finished quilt and some mail.


Look at the lovely parcel that arrived in the post today. This arrived from Barb from http://www.barbscreations.blogspot.com/ I was lucky enough to win the prize in her first ever giveaway. The prize was for a journal cover. Barb said she was adding a few extra items. Well I was blessed to receive this parcel, it contained some new gold pins some beautiful buttons some pink cotton lace a packet of write-on-tabs to put in the journal. There was also 4 strands of DMC thread two in green shades and two in pink shades. The pink shades was No. 107 which is a variegated thread and No 3705. The green shades were No. 471 and No. 92 which is a variegated thread. There was also some extra material. I think Lucy has eyed this off already.Thank you very much for this lovely prize Barb.
This morning I put the binding on "A walk in the Garden Quilt". I bordered each embroidery with some chicken wire material. The main fabric I picked up last week at Textile Traders. It is a lovely garden print. In some of the embroideries I added some more flowers. In this sunflower block I embroidered over the first lot of embroidery to add some dimension to the flowers.

I was extremely pleased with how this has turned out. Now I just need to get a hanger for it.

Thanks to Lyn Briggs from http://www.moorepatchwork.com/ for giving me this pattern.
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Autumn weather.
Happy days.
