After a day of house cleaning, sheep and the Monday afternoon neighborhood Bible study (that is looking at a lineage of Bible women, it was on Rahab today), I am hoping for a little sewing time tomorrow.
In lieu of new sewing I thought i had better answer a couple of emailer queries. Apparently some would like a closer look at the quilt that presently graces the top of my daughter's pile on her bed. So while I sit here and stream the late nite lounge radio through my computer I will fill you in.
This quilt was all that she asked for for her 7th Birthday. But she wanted the things on it that she loved so I collected up some good stitcheries and appropriate fabrics over a few months and this is what we got.
The castle centre was my design, there is a princess up the top looking out longingly...is there any other way for a Princess to look?
I wanted a sky and moat type appearance, then I drew out a castle, transferred to the lovely visoflix/fabric and we were off!
Here is some of the detail off the castle-you know you can click on the pictures for a closer look. She was mad on unicorns so i converted a colouring book horse.
The little mermaid is her favourite of those movies, I made her blonde to suit my little mermaid.
Wanted to marry Peter Pan at that point so he got a spot as well.
This is from her favourite b*rbie movie that we both liked.
I think this is a Bronwyn Hayes stitchery, that's meant to be her pet chook.
This one was out of an old magazine, made the cat look like hers at the time.
This is her guardian angel up the top, out of another old magazine.
Some of the detail on the fairy tale fabric.
So now I have fulfilled the girl quilt requests. In the near future I may catch up on a few of the others!-I really do need to find a few more hours in the day!!!
Have a great day, Tracey
