Have two things on the go at the moment. One is top secret squirrel stuff for part of my EB sewing groups Valentine Day swap. Lets just say what a fantastic way to use up all my scraps!
And here we have that teddy bear quilt. Getting there slowly. Decided to echo quilt around the bears (thanks Jill!) and do love hearts on the 4 patch rectangle blocks inbetween. I have always done echo quilting, well what little I have done, just by sight which would explain why most of the time it looked so bad! But this time, I have drawn with my water erasable trusty texta, a 5mm line around each bear and sewn on that as a guide. Its still wonky in places, but looks heaps better than what I would have done without that guide.
I haven't washed the line out yet in these photo's. Still have 3 more hearts to do then the binding. All on track for handing it over to Michelle next Tuesday, a small gift to say thanks for looking after my girls every Friday for nearly 2 years! Grace started with her back in October 2004 and Milly in January 2005. 2007 is going to be full of change for us!
Speaking of which, thanks to all those who posted their good wishes about our latest developments with Gracie Lou. Daz's meeting went well on Monday, very well. Nothings definate yet but they have told us to feel "quietly confident". What does that mean exactly?? Fingers crossed....
