Another project for OPAM is finished!!!
In the nick of time I confess, but it is done and that is nice!
I liked the pattern and how it turned out, but with all the seams it would be a pain in the neck to hand quilt so I let the little quilt “rest” for a while…
But it deserved to be finished and a good solution would be to machine quilt it. I quilted in the ditch, which I don’t like at all, I prefer to quilt where I can see the stitches and the quilting motif.
In this case, I’m glad I’m done! I think it looks nice and now I can hand quilt the other little ones, they have less seams!
I got some pretty gifts for my birthday last week, it was a very nice day with a tasty cake!
My DH surprised me with some wonderful gifts - sometimes he pays more attention than I think he usually does!
I told him about the lovely Tea for One Set and this is the one he chose for me:
I love it! And I think a new passion has taken hold, I want to start a collection!!! Nuts, right?…
Well, talking about collection…I was happy to welcome a new sweet member to the toys sewing machine bunch:
It came in its original package with the instructions and it works!
And because I also love miniatures he found these ones:
I was thrilled with such tiny darling things! He spoiled me once more I must say, everything was so especial, I was (am!) so happy!
From my best friend I got a lovely book:
The projects combine cross stitch with patchwork:
Oh boy, I was so lucky that I also got another book from this author:
The projects are for Spring and Summer and in different pretty combinations like red and white, blues and greens. It makes hard to decide what to sew first!
I am fortunate to have such a wonderful partner at my side, a lovely family and caring friends. They are the greatest gifts of all! And I’m thankful to have met so many dear friends in Blogland, who also made this day a unique one!
The weather has been so nice since yesterday! It is warmer and the sun is shining, it feels really good! Now I can finally say that Spring has sprung! Hopefully it will stay like that during the next week, the Easter Bunnies don’t like rain either!
Wishing each of you a lovely, sunny and creative week!
