There was lots of time spent just loitering around here with a needle and thread in hand this Easter break - I even have something to show for it.
The projects I worked on were
Miss Millie and friends now quilted but I can't show it all yet.
A last minute Easter project, like I started it Saturday night and finished the stitching on Sunday. This gorgeous bunny pin cushion pattern is a free one over a Red Brolly - thanks Bronwyn for your generosity.
Sewn up and stuffed on Monday - he's ready for next Easter.
Then I decided as Nomee was doing a little work anyway, why not have a play with some little pieces of fabric.
There is a tutorial over a Cluck Cluck Sew for Sprocket pillows and I shrunk the pattern to make this little cutie. Thanks for the tutorial, I believe you when you say you can't stop at one.
Cut, sewn, stuffed and finished - 6 inches in diameter so less than half the size of the original - super easy just take it slow.

This is one of Miss Millies friends that I finished stitching yesterday after spending the afternoon in the company of friends, old and new, admiring the gorgeous quilts of the very talented members of Essendon Quilters.
No pictures to show as there were reminders everywhere that it was not acceptable to post them on any media so you'll just have to believe me when I say the work was exceptional.
The photo was taken inside so that is just a shadow not some ugly mark on the side of her face.
I just have no control when I see gorgeous fabrics in these settings so indulged and purchased this bundle of gorgeous bite sized pieces from Corliss of Threadbear in Castlemaine and one of the vendors selling their wares at the show.
