BEFORE I...

... show you the sewing I got done I will share ..


.. this lovely Post Card. It arrived this morning for NZ. My friend Sue (www.kiwikidspage.blogspot.com ) sent it for me to enjoy some NZ sunshine xx It is sitting above my sewing machine xx

When I was cleaning and sorting I found a bag with LOTS of 4 patch squares that I made .. some time ? when ? 

.. SO .. yesterday I started putting them to-gether and by the end of the morning I had...


.. this morning I got back to it and now I have ..


.. the sharp eyed will have noted they are Kaffe Fassett fabrics .. so yummy x..


It will become a quilt for my ELDEST grandson. NOW either I cannot do maths (sadly true!) ....OR I was intending to do something different.. BUT when I finished I still had a pile of blocks over! SO .. I made..


this will be for the YOUNGEST grandson (you keeping up?)

While I was working on them I was talking to the MIDDLE grandson on Skype (he is in Perth, Western Australia) .. and HE has giving me advice about what to appliqué onto the centre of the little quilt x (he is ALWAYS giving me advice!!.. what can I say he is 10!! lol )

SO.. all 3 grandsons are involved here x The middle one had a quilt last year and one at Christmas so he is ahead of the other 2 lol x

Such a fun day x TO-MORROW I am going to start on the appliqué.. I TOLD YOU.. I am determined to get sewing this week xx (AND 3 posts in 3 days Wooo-Hoooo)

Those fabrics all look so good together.
I let my grandsons choose the colors and that has been tough enough.
