EB DQS 2010 Opening Day - what I made : )

I know that my recipient has now received her quilt so I can show you what I made for Nicole. I had a lot of fun making this little quilt, and it was certainly hard to part with : ) I intend to make another one for my sewing room one of these days. It is the first time I have done a quilt completely done from applique, and the first time I have done quilting the way that I did it. I have no idea of the technical name of this type of quilting, and am sure I didn't do it technically right - but it was fun and I love the texture that it has created around the tree.

In The Press - LittleONE Baby Magazine!

A very exciting day here today - this morning I received the latest issue of LittleONE Baby magazine in the post. I had an inkling that there might be something to make me smile in this issue - but I am more like the Cheshire Cat. Two dresses from my Summer Collection have been featured in the magazine and I am a little bit more than excited!

'Freebird' Dress (top of page)
'Sweet Dot' Tie Back Dress (bottom row, second along)
This is the first time I have made it to the press, very exciting!

EB DQS 2010 Opening Day - what I received!

Today is opening day for the Annual EB Dolls Quilt Swap. My partner is yet to receive her parcel, it should be there today - grrr. . . . to Australia Post, why send something express when it doesn't arrive the next day like it is suppose to!?!?
Lucky us had our parcel arrive earlier in the week and with opening day today I was quick to open the parcel for Matilda - as I had requested a wall hanging for her room.
And haven't we been spoilt! This gorgeous quilt was made by Carmel - and we are in LOVE with the gorgeous detail and work she has put in to this little quilt.
Thankyou Carmel, we LOVE IT!
