Also on the sewing table this week have been some Mr and Mrs Monsters that have needed sewing and stuffing. What started as a pile of these :
Are now looking like this waiting to be stuffed!
A quilt that I have been working on for well over a year now is this Chelsea Bloom Lap Quilt. Usually I am a little quicker at putting together quilts but this one is special. My friend moved to America about 18months ago and I wanted to make her a quilt to remind her that I am always thinking of her even if she was far away. So I started putting all the blocks together and she received the first pieces of them last year on her birthday. Each month on her birthday number I posted some more blocks until they were all sent. If you have ever lived away from family and friends then I know you will understand the joy at receiving parcels in the post from afar. At Christmas she returned home for a visit and brought me back all the blocks to put together. And while this has taken a little longer to sew together I know she understands that it has been a busy year.
So here is a peak for you Katrina at what will soon be your finished quilt. I hope you like it.
