Angelas birthday gift

Photobucket



It was my dear friend Angelas birthday this week, and so I made her this little fob the design is taken from Brightneedles - Eastertide sampler. I stitched it on some hand dyed 28ct fabric I got from Jaynes attic at Christmas - the fabric was quite odd to work on as it felt like it had a rubbery feel to it! but I was pleased with how its come out, the backing I used a piece of the same fabric but covered it with a bright lemon hand dyed piece of lace and then edged it with cord. Ang tells me she loves it so I am happy she is happy - Happy Birthday my friend!!


What else to tell, well I have finally been convinced it would be a good idea to sign up for a patchwork quilt course being run at Fobbles, in April, I have been wanting to make my very own quilt for years and now hopefully this will be my opportunity to make one - I hope I don't get bitten by the quilting bug too much as I have enough with my stitching LOL!! and it will be taking me away from my normal 'comfort' zone LOL! But nevertheless I will give it a go and hopefully produce something beautiful that could be an heirloom!!

I have finished Part 3 of my Sail Away SAL but have yet to take some pics, and I have finished Carols exchange piece after a previous disaster with the first thing I made, so this weekend I will do some finishing work I think as I must send next week.

Hope you all have a great weekend, at the moment its not raining here, just bright and cold which I like, better go and help Nephew 2 sort out my little pond.

Lovely! What a lucky friend!

The fob is gorgeous. Congratulations, Su.

I would love to sign up for a quilting class myself - one of my favorite stores is a quilting store, and I don't quilt. I've promised myself I will wait until I buy my own house (so I'll have a dedicated stitching room)before I start quilting.

Oooh, I love it, I love it, I love it :>) I love little bunnies especially leaping ones and this one has leapt into my heart!! The backing with the delicate lace is so unusual I love it - have I already said that...haha! All the extra fabrics are gorgeous thank you. it was a smashing birthday surprise.

Oh I would love to do a quilting class but like you am worried I would like it too much. I need to make a substantial dent in my stitching stash before I consider another hobby but, then again I could change my mind when I see yours develop.
Warm hugs, Angela

A beautiful gift for such a special person as Angela! I would love to see a photo of the lemon lace.

Good luck with your quilting class Su! If your quilting is anything like your stitching the results will be stunning.

A lovely scissor fob for Angela! I am sure she is delighted.

If only Fobbles were closer I would be joining you at the quilting class.

See you added sparkles to follow the mouse - well done!
