It's been a very productive week all round. Firstly my Monday night students had a few things to share. Alison has been working on her quilt from Annie Downs "Family Gathering" book and brought the finished product along to show us after completing her brilliant quilting. WELL DONE AL!
As you can see my studio is still standing. Still no news. I must take some photos to show you. Another creation in the making is my Easter Egg Express bunnies being made by Karolyn. She is making them for two little friends for Christmas and they are going to look so cute.
Naturally they will feel better after they have their knickers on. They weren't impressed when I wanted to take a pic of them in their birthday suits. I should have a final pic of them to show you after next Monday night. Karolyn is also working on my BOM "The Wonder of Spring" and it's looking very special I must say!!
Now with a week of creations my son Jack has entered into a program at school that he just can't get enough of. One of his teachers has a Dad who breeds baby Conure Parrots. With permission from her dad she decided to run a program in raising the baby chics. Only a few of the kids were interested and who was first in line?? Jack.......Like Mother, like Son!
How gorgeous is this little buzzard!! What a creation......
The kids had to sign a form saying that they were going to be very responsible with the little birds as they are so young. There are 3 of them and Jack has picked the runt of the pack. He is so taken with his little bird and apparently the teacher was telling me that the little bird feels the same way about Jack. aaawwwwwwweeeeeee! how beautiful 8-)
Jack has called his little bird "Little Mig" they get to feed them through out the day with a special mixture that has to be heated to a certain degree and then they spoon feed them. Jack received this last week for his excellent efforts with Little Mig!
They are rather unusual looking birds, but very playful. Jack is hoping to keep Little Mig after the program has finished. We will have to see what the teacher says!! Hmmm what an excellent Chrissie present.
As the creating continues I have been extremely busy preparing for the Australian Quilt Market coming up next month down in Melbourne that I am going to. I have begun a new design called "Friends from the Garden" I have a small sneeky peeky to show you and hopefully a bit more in a few days time. Sorry the pic is a little out of focus.
Now I almost forgot about my giveaway with all my waffling on.....LOL I have 3 patterns for "Picnic Basket" to give away and a perfect time for all the present making that is going on I'm sure!! :-)
All you need to do is leave a comment and you instantly go into the draw to win. Good luck everyone. The winners will be announced next Wednesday evening, meanwhile I hope life is one big picnic basket for you!
Until next time.........
