A Double Celebration.

My lovely grandaughter Freya is going to be 3 years old just two days after the birth of her new baby sister. So two precious little girls to celebrate.

Freya is a delight and so much fun, her fairy name is 'Rain Reedward', so I made her a fairy outfit to play in.
A pair of blue green butterfly wings.
A fairy tutu with lots of net and blue organza........
and a wand to wave some fairy magic!!!******

She's having her party next Sunday before her new sister arrives, it's going to be such fun.

I have just finished the babies quilt and here it is.


I'm pleased with how it's turned out. I've used big stitch hand quilting in lovely soft cotton thread, mostly yellow with a little bit of red to contrast.

So you see, two things to celebrate next weekend. Watch this space for the party pics.

This  post is part of a  bloghop so pop over and say hello to Laurie at www.inkingaroundtheedges.blogspot.com who is next on the list.

You'll need the letter 'i' to help you win a prize, hop to all the blogs for all the letters. Thanks to Sandie at Itchi Fingers for organising the fun having the giveaway,

Work in progress!!

I'm stitching furiously at the moment with several things on the go.

My newest Grandaughter will be arriving at he end of June, so I am making her a bright and summery quilt.

 I've just finished the piecing and the applique and here's how it looks.

I've lots of hand stitching to do now ready for the day she arrives. I'll be with them all as I am helping with her big sister. I'm starting to get excited already!

I can't ignore my Etsy shop while all this is going on so I made some vintage style Pin Keeps today.


This first one is for someone special, I hope she likes it!!!
 The front  has a 'hold together', A pretty decorated clothes pin.
 Inside is a pocket and a book to hold needles amd pins.
I used an old quilt which I cut up and coffee dyed along with some bits of lace, all tied up with hand cut and dyed silk ribbon.

These two will be going in my Etsy shop soon.

See you soon with more 'Work In Progress'.

Hugs, Angela.x
