Makes Me Happy Monday.

Happy Monday everyone.

It is a long weekend here in WA so I bet that is making lots of people happy. We have a brand spanking new tablecloth here at Kainga that is making me very happy this Monday. Last Sunday Bonnie was kind enough to pick up some  of my quilts from the quilters. It was far to hot during the week to put the binding on. I managed to get the binding done on my tablecloth  on the weekend . I made  and designed the cloth late last year.


I took some shots of it outside this morning.


The cloth was custom quilted with ladybugs around the edge.



A floral pattern was chosen to quilt the centre section.



Leaves were quilted around both Sunflowers.



Now can you imagine what will happen to the first person who spills something on our new tablecloth!!!!
I am extremely happy this Monday that my tablecloth is now completed. I would love to hear what is making you happy this Monday.

Happy days.
Bev C

What an unusual design. I love the realistic looking beetles on the leaves. Bit special for everyday spaghetti dinner.

Hello Bev,
Just love your new table cloth. Love the scrappy fabrics that you used and the appliqué designs are lovely. That would make me happy to see it at every meal time. I think I would remove it at our house when we eat. We are messy eaters. : )
Hope you are feeling better and getting some good rest. Blessings to you and have a wonderful week.

Oh wow Bev what an amazing table cloth - it's beautiful. We could never have anything so precious on our table, hubby is way too messy! I saw you had won on David's blog - congratulations - got so excited for you when I saw your name. Have a wonderful Monday - hugs, Shell x

It's gorjuss Bev, I love all the extra details of the spiders and the bugs, I even recognise the ladybird fabric I have some of that in my stash! Perhaps everyone will have to find somewhere else to eat, Lol
