Lots of stitching going on …

First of all a great big thank you to all of the lovely people that left comments on my previous giveaway post!! I’m just chuffed to bits to see so many new blogs!! I haven’t been able to reply to such a lot of comments, but I have visited your blogs and have had such fun doing that!!

I made another Honeybun Fun set in “Aviary” over the weekend. It’s still one of my favourite fabric ranges … so soft and pretty …July 2010 005 Mmmm …. all that lovely PINK :o)!! Don’t forget my giveaway … leave a comment on my previous post to enter and I’ll draw 3 winners to win a copy of this pattern and my new quilt pattern “Square Dance” on Thursday :o)!! Would you believe I found yet another honeybun in my stash ... Aster Manor ... mmmmm, lovely. So I've been sketching a new design, hopefully I can get started on it next week - fingers crossed ;o).

It occurred to me this evening when I was taking the above piccy that I didn’t get around to showing you the third thing in the set of goodies (here and here) that my friends Lynn & Valerie and I made to take on our first retreat next month … here they all are together. The last item made was the bag (at the back) to carry it all in. June 2010 193It’s actually a Coles shopping bag covered with matching fabric!! And these are Valerie’s (right) and Lynn’s (middle) sets too … they’re all so different ~ and we had loads of laughs together while making them :o). June 2010 191I reckon they all turned out great!!!

Well it was a big day for our Bundy-boy today. After spending most of June like this because of having “that” operation ….June 2010 156 He finally got that awful collar off last week so this is what he did today ……July 2010 002Poor thing got an infection down there so has been on antibiotics for the past 3 weeks to get ride of it. I’m sure he was pleased to be all fresh and clean again … he certainly smells better!!! I think he’s smiling!! It’s nice to be back to normal again :o).

Hope you’ve all had a fabulous weekend … and happy 4th of July to all of my blogging friends in USA!!!!!

Oh Joy, Bundy looks so much like my Jake did! BC's are wonderful aren't they?! Jake hated getting bathed, and wanted to find something to roll in right away!! lol I'm glad that his infection is healing well. I remember when Jake had his op. We tried one of the collars but he kept getting it off, so we had to stay up all night with him on the first night to stop the licking and pulling. Then we got a bucket the next day and cut the base out and put holes in it and attached it to his actual collar and it worked! Thankfully! Oh how I miss him. I love the fabric you used, Aviary, it really is gorgeous!! And I love the fabric you used for your quilters retreat gear!! Simply wonderful!

Please give Bundy a Dutch hug from me, he must feel so happy! :-))

I love Aviary, I only wish I had bough ( a lot) more :-(. I'm going to use it for a Dresden plate quilt.
I love what you made with it.

You have been busy stitching this weekend. The new set looks lovely. You three will be the best accessorised at our retreat. Very stylish. Poor Bundy. I'm glad he's all better now. Our Biggles had the same trouble last year, but he was 10 years old, which was a bit hard on him.

Fiona said...

Vicki said...

I love the bags. It certainly makes a coles shopping bag look so much nicer.
The Aviary items look gorgeous.
