Happy Christmas!

Another year of crafting!  Here are my final two projects:  machine embroidered robin cards for my sewing group and no-sew patchwork Christmas trees with a group of friends. A lovely end to the year.

Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a creative New Year!

Doodle flowers

Looking rather pale in the Northern winter sunshine, this is a quilt that I've just completed for my daughter.  She wanted blue but it had to fit with other soft furnishings in her room and so we arrived at a compromise of this blue/green.

I based the design on a doodle.  Large flowers with loose curly tendrils have been appliqued onto a background and then top-stitched to give the effect of illustration.  The border is strip pieced in a random fashion.

Slightly too late for her first term at Uni but I'm hoping it will be a nice surprise when she comes home today.
