Finally finished my “Rebel”

I’m going to take a wild guess and say I started this project close to eighteen months ago. It’s been sitting waiting to be quilted for nearly a year I’d reckon!! But ….. it’s finished, YAY!!!!!!!!February 10 044Loads of 3/4” hexies framing 5 sweet stitcheries. This pattern is called ‘Rebel’ and it’s by Angels in Disguise. It has 4 delightful rather traditional country styled angels in each corner … there’s “Joy”February 10 042

and “Hope” ….February 10 043 and also Faith and Harmony … but I didn’t take a piccy of them. In the middle is the less traditional “Rebel” in her boots and denim … isn’t she a treat!!?February 10 041 Some of you might recognise these fabulous stitcheries as the work of the very talented Cath Walker :o) ….. they’re just too cute!!! I’m just so pleased to have finished this and have it hanging up on my wall :o).

I got some lovely mail today!! My Stitcher’s Angel gifts arrived from Norway!! What a fabulous surprise :o) … and aren’t they just beautiful :o)!! February 10 022 Here are the gorgeous items she made especially for me ….February 10 021The sweetest little bag, just right for carrying around my small stitchy projects!! A needle holder, pin cushion and scissor keep all beautifully made. But that’s not all, she also sent me these treasures … Delicious Tilda fabric, rosy embroidered applique’ and some silk threads……February 10 025also this gorgeous ribbon and little tape measure with a magnet on the back, I’ll always be able to find one now ;o)February 10 023 My Stitcher’s Angel had emailed me to let me know it would be late … her life has been busy lately I think ;o). Thank you so much my dear Angel … these wonderful goodies were most definitely worth the wait :o)!!!

Oh my!! Joy that Rebel quilt is just gorgeous!!!! I love angels and am also a hexie and stitchery addict, so I am definately going to have to get that pattern somehow. I have never seen it before. The angel swap was worth the wait from what I can see. Such a lovely assortment of things in lovely colours. I'd love to know where she got that hexie tape measure from !!! I want one ( oops- I NEED one heheheheeh.
