I have to share my latest ‘finish’ with you first today as I’m just so flipping pleased with it.
‘Sherbert’ is what I named this particular quilt as when I was describing the colours I wanted to use I suggested the colours of the sherbert that we used to be able to buy many moons ago as children. So, without further ado may I introduce ‘Sherbert”
Now I hope you can see why I’m so happy with it. My friend and long arm quilter Sue did the quilting and I really think she has enhanced the entire quilt – this one is a ‘keeper’
Along with this quilt I have also been plodding along with stitcheries that I’ve been getting done for little gifts and also the odd cushion.
This is the latest cushion from the production line – I’m sorry about the ‘shiny’ glare, I forgot to take a photograph before I covered it in cellophane for the shop.
The last couple of weeks I’ve been busy finishing off the renovations of our lounge while nursing an injury.
There are still quite a few bits and bobs to get put out and hung up, including the odd quilt or two – but in the main we are finished – yeah!!!!
As for the injury – mmm, well I managed to drop a large cast iron beautiful shabby chic tray onto my toe. At almost 4kg it kind of hurt like heck but worst of all was being back into plaster for a wee while as I had broken my big toe in a few places. I’m not quite sure what the plaster was achieving as my poor old blackened toe was still able to move. Anyway, eventually I was able to talk the dear doctor man around and get the cast off, leaving me with an impressive bruise and quite a bit of swelling.
Now the bruising seems to have settled and is really only visible under my nail – a good excuse to buy some dark nail polish to hide it I reckon *wink*.
Well, on that colourful note I think I’ll share just one last image – this one is from the shop with the wisteria doing it’s best to frame the entrance to the shop
have a great week everyone
