Sharing lovely things - and lovely people.
A special person is leaving our local sewing group so (as quilters do!) we got together to make her something special.
We each made a block in a fabric range (by Lynette Anderson) that she loves.
The lovely Leeanne (one of our group) from quiltmekiwi quilted it for us.
Last night we gave it to her. She was so happy :-)

|This is the block I made.|
It is from a pattern by Lyn Hyland of L'il Blokes.
You may have noticed the centre block became a signature block. The clever Leeanne pulled this off well.
We'll miss you our friend, but hope you will think of us when you see this quilt!
EDIT; Leeanne's just posted pictures of all the blocks. See them here.
I've also been on the receiving end of some lovely, thoughtful homemade gifts lately. Closest to home, my YD has made me this gorgeous bear......
|I've called him Albert :-)|
(And ED gave me the cute wee Gardening Fairy).
|He lives in my sewing cave.|
Can you see the cute doily he is sitting on?
Cat sent it to me!!! Along with the soap Albert is holding. Such a sweet lady. I've followed Cat's crochet journey over the last year or more (she even "hooked around Europe" [her words!]) so it is nice to have this piece.
Thank you Cat for your thoughtfulness.
|And the soap smells gorgeous.|
More kindness came my way earlier this week! The kind Donna (no blog) sent me this gorgeous little wall hanging all the way from the USA. She told me she was thinking of my family and I while she was busy sewing Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street. She put together this from the leftovers from it. Isn't she lovely?
|Thank you kind Donna.|
