Sunday Stash #18

So this is the fabric the my Beehive quilt will be based on. It is intended for a beach house, so hence the colour choices, combined with a crisp white cotton.

Beehive on its way

What a weekend I have had- madly cutting pieces of fabric to post to everyone in The Beehive. February is my month so I have spent January finding fabrics and practising a few different types of blocks. Just as well, as my poor Janome is a bit sick. I ran over a needle and she just hasn't been the same. Might have to check her in to rehab.

As you can see, my assistant was tremendously industrious in helping with fabric choices.

Baby bird

My friend Marie has just had a gorgeous little baby girl, Lucy, who is going to be Christened next week. I thought this bird might be a nice gift for the occasion...

The bird is quite heavily embroidered using chain stitch, Chinese knots and gold old fashioned running stitch.

A chicken in a sundress

Remember the seersucker japanese fabric I used to make a dress for Brigi but she wasn't in a photo session mood (see October's Sunday Stash #9)? Well I snapped her in this little number the other day and thought I had to share it with you.

Sunday Stash #17

This beautiful fabric was purchased from Tessuti at Surry Hills on Wednesday. It is a Zimmerman cotton voile- YUMMY. Perfect for a summer frock. If you have the time and inclination, you should head over. Lots of fabrics reduced, great for expanding the stash!
