3 finishes = happy girl

I was lucky to have 3 finishes this week, makes for a happy camper, also doing some secret squirrel stuff can't show you.

First finish is another from my weekend away in Melbourne last year and the mate to my pin cushion called Bunting House by Cinderberry Stitches the sewing pocket Room for Friends.  It is so cute.



My next finish is The Birdhouse True Friends Tote, for Natalies book Red Home.  BFF Rhonda and I stitched the panels and swapped.  Rhonda has had hers made for months, I'm just a bit slower......read that as slack.  I have just been introduced to French General fabric, and I love it .....this is made with that.  I also decided to use lace instead of ric rac which looks a bit different.

My next finish is Rosalie Quinlan's Quilt Giving Bag.   Rhonda and I are heading over to the Barossa in May to do a 2 day workshop at Maggie Beer's Farm with Rosalie Quinlan and Bronwyn Hayes, so we have both made her bag to take with us.

Totally out of my comfort zone with this fabric, I purchased 2 charm packs called Family Tree and some yardage to finish it but didnt realise how much orange was in it.  Mind you I love the finish but not an orange fan.

Well that's enough from me

Happy stitching
