A Productive Weekend

Friends of ours had their first baby last week - a gorgeous little girl called Mathilde! Using some stitchery patterns from Bronwyn Hayes' book "Little Chicken Feather", and a free pattern for a 'kidlet' from JC Handmade, I put together my version of a 'kidlet'.

I added some length to the original kidlet to enable my stitchery to fit nicely. I really like these pink and purple stripes!


I also embellished a little singlet for Mathilde too.


I also finished the latest block from Gail Pan's "A Christmas Wish BOM" during the week.


And today I put together the last of my 36 windmills. Now I just need some time (and floor space) to organise how they will go together.


And I have almost finished my latest softie too- here's a little peak:

What a terrific weekend - lots of lovely things. Lucky Mathilde (such a pretty name) - she will look a real peach in her fancy singlet. Nice work on the Gail Pan block and your windmills are coming along. I can't wait to see them all sewn together.

Happy Stitching...Ann :)
