AJ's Quilt.

I finished the binding on this last night, AJ's quilt. She sewed the top, I have sandwiched and quilted it. I was thinking just simple diagonal cross hatching, but my walking foot isn't walking properly, I don't know whats up with it. So after doing a terrible job on two thirds of it, I unpicked it all and went with what I know best, meandering stippling. Looks much better! Just a label and 10 minutes in the tumble dryer to get it nice and soft then on its way it will go.

While I was taking the photo of the quilt, Matilda was being a goose under the trampoline, lying on the grass making snow angels. I snapped some shots of her and caught this sweet one, little freckles on her nose, a sweet grin instead of a horrible forced CHEEESSSSE smile she always gives, little Pippy Longstocking plaits. What a poppet, she keeps us on our toes!

Love the pic of Milly. It can be so hard to get a pic of them looking natural, can't it?
