TODAY'S SUPRISES

Look what finally turned up.....

We ordered our new lounge suite in the middle of September and had all but given up that we would see it before Christmas, by the way the chair is the same colour as the lounge, I had to use my flash as the weather is like the middle of winter, very dark and dreary.

Now for the quilt on the lounge, I finished the binding last night and made it for our new lounge.

Here is a closeup to try and show the gorgeous quilting that was done professionally by the amazing Julie Colbey.
This was my first time at getting a quilt professionally done and I am thrilled at the result. I do enjoy doing my own quilting and I will continue to do my own for the most part but working in a quilt shop and seeing the amazing results with Julie's quilting, I just had to try.



Here is my other suprise

Thank you Manda you are so sweet.
For those of you who don't know Manda, she has the most wicked sense of humour and is extremely talented also, I am so proud to call her my friend.
