Perfectly Pink Angels
Ellie's Pillow perfectly pink and hopefully it will be with Ellie on Tuesday. Adapted from a Big Toe Designs chart I was RAKd by Jenny. Thank you Jenny.
I am having a few issues: my son is very, very ill (Crohn's Disease), my car has broken down and my tumble drier died yesterday. Yesterday was not the best day, but apart from my son, the rest is just 'things' and so I will not dwell on them.
I rehomed my last owl yesterday, so I guess I had better make some more, and I will make some more small-project tote bags.
This is my fabric for my quilt along (see side bar). I bought a layer cake by mistake but it is fine; I will fussy cut the bits I like (hark at me with the quilting jargon) and with all the money I need raise I am sure I will think of things to do with the rest. I do love the colours though: I think this is Gypsy Girl....very appropriate for me as there is a small chance I have Irish Traveller blood....still trying to track down my great, great grandad. Apparently his surname is the same name as a certain clan...might explain why I get itchy feet so often. I have moved over 40 times!
I will be using Moda solid white jelly rolls for the bits inbetween (back down to my quilting level lol....bits).
I just need to pluck up the courage to cut into it the squares. I hate cutting fabric. Today though I need to make some cards. I need longer days (or the ability to get up earlier on cold mornings haha).
Have a lovely weekend everyone xxxxx
