It continues to be busy here with the preparations for moving house. However, I have now finished and sent off the two quilts that I have been working on and teasing you with snippets of!!
We have just had two new additions to our family. My brother-in-law's two daughters have both just had new babies. So I have two new great nieces and we are delighted to welcome them into the family.
I decided to make them each an a quilt. The piecing for the quilts was identical but I used different backing fabric and I quilted them with different designs so that they will be able to tell them apart.
It was a lot of fun deciding how to quilt them and I enjoyed making them both immensely. They have both now been received and I think that my nieces are both very happy with them.
Since finishing the quilts I decided to have a bit of a break from the sewing machine and I started a new hobby (dangerous I know!) It's really an extension from making some of the handmade card that I sometimes make, so I haven't needed to add too many new supplies to my craft room (lol!)
My inspiration came from a lovely lady that I have seen online called Vicky Papaioannou whose art journal pages are gorgeous. You can find her blog here.
She has an active You Tube channel and I based my first page (pictured above) on one of her 101 Tutorial Videos.
So lovely to have a break from organising 'stuff' for moving but I am off back to organising now!
Until next time 😊 xx
