"Sunshine & Sunflowers" is completed,cross stitch and sewing.

Hello,

It is Friday already,hasn't the past week gone so quickly. I can't believe it is Friday-Night-Sew-In already. I plan to do some brick making!!! Well a pattern that looks like brickwork.


I got the binding done of the "Sunshine & Sunflowers" quilt. When I dropped it of at the quilters we chose a lovely bright yellow for the quilting. I got a phone call when the quilts were ready and the lady decided to use a variegated thread in green/yellow/orange tones on the top.

I was pleased to see the yellow thread was used in the bobbin. I guess I can turn it over and use it this way as well.
The other week I was lucky enough to win 2nd prize in David's giveaway. A Blackbird Designs cross stitch pattern called "Where my heart blooms". There is also some lovely hand dyed thread. Thank you for sending out the prize all the way from France David.

Now I had better get some material ready for sewing tonight. Catch up with you on the weekend sometime.

Happy sewing.
Bev C
