It looked like a big beautiful garden, with gorgeous flowers and foliage and the butterflies in one of the prints got me thinking......
So, I'm going to do a mix of quilting. Handstitches in bright perle cotton in the linen and solid areas, and to pick out some of the flowers, and then in the areas where the patterns are busier I'm going to try FMQ (eeeek!)
I'm going to do quite a large loopy pattern with butterflies. I'm hoping it will look like the butterflies are fluttering around the garden :)
What do you think? I'm soooooooo excited about it! I really, really love the prints in this fabric and want to admire them and play with them while I'm quilting :)
I've decided to properly introduce Ava, our dog.
She came to live with us just before New Year (a few months before we said goodbye to Poppy). She's not a puppy, she's 4 and was a breeding bitch, but her owners were no longer able to look after her. Now her days of having babies are over and she gets to snuggle on our sofa all day if she wants.
She's very very cute, sweet and loving, but she's not the sharpest tool in the box. She got lost the other day.... upstairs in our house..... there's only 3 bedrooms and a bathroom up there..... and she's lived here 8 months..... Bless!
Hope you have a great weekend!
