Skipping a heart beat...





Well a four to five week turn around - who would have thought possible, amongst the decision to sell, a three year old and generally life. But I have nearly done it. This is my sisters' (Turramurra) Birthday present , which I lovingly stitched with Denyse Schmidt's latest collection. The fresh contemporary colours with the olde world prints...... I fell in love with this little number too, but find peace in knowing it is going to be loved and treasured (you will won't you!?).

I thought I'd do something different though with the backing instead of a plain backing, much inspired by the gorgeous quilts of Gees Bend. I enjoyed this random process and look forward to experimenting with this process a little more.

So hope you like it Potty Mouth Mama, (don't worry, she has already seen it last weekend at a special Birthday brekkie at Fratelli....hmmmm my favourite)
