Well isn't she so sweet.... She posted some to me for a gift..... I will be trying them...
Quilting clips from Sue to try


Then another friend made me some cute gifts....
A few years back I got out all me hand made Xmas decorations, quilts, table runners, tree skirts, wall hangings, table clothes ant placemats. It was so disappointing to find them all moody and rotten. Not sure how they got wet but they did. I tried washing, soaking and washing them but they didn't come good. They all went in the bin and after John I am slowly trying to make them all again. It takes a while to replace your own things when you are busy making gifts for everyone else. We always put ourselves last.... None the less I am getting there.
My sweet friend made this for me as she made it years ago as a gift. Now I have a replacement. It is special as I taught her how to sew and quilt. This is her first free motion quilted piece. Very special for me... Thanks Sue...
Sorry it's blurry. Not sure why...

  4. I'm sorry that you lost all your hand made decorations, that had to a very hard to take right before the holiday. Hope you make some progress on getting them replaced.
