A Great Time over Easter

My garden is growing   slowly but it is growing I did add one flower to it this week. Had lots of fun learning to make a lead lighting wall hanging at Janome It took me a month (4 Mondays) to make it I loved lead lighting  so much I went home and started on another one an Australian Galah. It still has a lot of work to do on it I have to add the Gumnuts before it gets quilted I also had a go at stippling on the lady wall hanging and  made a Table runner. We all had a great Easter we went to the beach and the Kookaburra invited itself for lunch also went to the Botanic Gardens and had lots of walks .so glad Easter is over. Have a great week, Dolly Hugs to all.

I have worked a bit on my butterfly quilt it’s been a long time since I started it I have looked at my dragon quilt that has to be finished and I found in my box of ufo’s two more quilts ready to be quilted. I have made four flowers for my garden this week I lost my mojo for a while and have found it again and hope to do a lot more sewing. Quilting at Janome has started this week we all had a good time on Monday and am looking forward to next week, Doll clubs have started up after the Christmas break but I have not thought what I will make yet. I also won a gift over at Amanda’s blog some fabric for my stash. It’s a great site (I love cloth dolls and cloth craft) Dolly Hugs to all. Rita.
