A finish and some squishy mail.

This quilt has been three quarters done and hanging on the back of my sewing chair for MONTHS!!! April 2010 198 Shame on me – I know!! All it needed were the borders!!! I don’t know why I didn’t just do it …. so glad I finally did cos I really like it :o)!!! It’s the second quilt I’ve made from this design called “Honeycomb” that I did last year - here’s the original….

and here’s the back of the new one …April 2010 205 Because it’s quilt-as-you-go it’s easy to make the back pretty too … so it’s reversible. Now all I have to do is put the label on :o).

Now I’m ready to start a new project … and I got a lovely parcel of inspiration in the mail last week!!April 2010 158 Mmmm …… ‘Mill House Inn’ :o)

AND …… ‘Rural Jardin’ - yummm :o)

… just gawjus … from any angle ;o)!!!

I have NO IDEA what I’ll make from these, I’m still just enjoying looking at them at the moment he he.

I hope all you Aussies had a lovely long weekend!!!!
