I had a pretty organised week last week. I had Jack organised each day doing his school work. Teacher's hat on.........Pushed that over to share half my head so I could put on my stitchers hat...........
I looked pretty grrrrrrrroovy I must say AND I think I deserve an apple a day for the teacher's title. Well maybe half an apple a day seeing I was only using half my head! LOL......
Jack pumped out some great work, mostly with smiles but he completed his week's worth so that was okie dokie by me!!
I pumped out a new design last week and released one that I designed not too long ago for a Christmas club.
I know that many of you joined in the fun withQuilt Fabric Delights online Christmas in July workshop but for those of you who weren't there the pattern is now available for my design.
I had heaps and heaps of fun designing this Christmas cutie. I was inspired by one of my designs from my book for this one. A bright and cheery welcome for the wall or your front door for Chrissy. I went back to my roots last week with my next design. I started out as a cloth doll designer and while I was planning my next quilt I had an idea for these guys.
Let me tell you how hard it was trying to get these guys to stay still for their photo session. I introduced them to my backyard and OINGO! BOINGO! off they went.......BERSERKO!
Based on the cheeky guys from my "Going Bananas" quilt and also inspired by my sister Mel's kitty kats. Please meet from left to right "Buster, Louie & Ike". They are "Funky Monkey" 1,2,3...
