In my eagerness to showcase all the others received from all the other generous stitchers, I almost forgot to post the quilt which I made a while ago.I gave a glimpse of it, but not the finished article.
On one of our "Days Out" I spotted a Space panel in the fantastic Sew Simple quilting shop in the Lady Heyes Craft Centre, Frodsham, Cheshire. Check it out, the whole place is well worth a visit as there are Antique Emporiums, Vintage books, a micro brewery, Crab Apple Crafts, Candles, a play barn and a good cafe, amongst so many other shop units.
I already had the other, plainer, fabrics in my stash and was amazed that the space panel, of approximately half a metre, was enough to make a slightly bigger quilt for an older boy, a tote bag and a cushion.
So here's a moon landing encapsulated in the quilt! Out of order for publishing but it was No 11 and it has already been donated to CHICS.The small cushion has a removable sachet of lavender inside which I hope will be relaxing for a young boy. Just to be safe, I sealed the lavender in a poly bag so it wouldn't spread it's fragrance where it wasn't wanted and added a tag telling about the contents.
Yet another super quilt arrived today from Tilly ... a whole cute zoo inside the parcel!
I'll post it soon so keep looking in.
