Meet Cousin Isabelle. She is a good and kindly soul and as a family member is often included in events but sometimes she feels like she is the poor relation. Today she makes her debut as a member of the dance troupe and has a pretty outfit for the occasion.
Only two more members to meet and then you can meet the whole team. There has been a flurry of activity as they perfect their steps. Can you guess who the last two are?
Today at Kate's we celebrated Wendy's birthday. Here are some of the goodies on show and we always have a delicious muffin baked by Wendy and yes she did bake her own birthday cakes. You have to be here to taste them and they are yummy. Sorry Rosemary, you can have yours when you come back from Australia. Lucky Rosemary is going to be meeting up with blogger Elyte and having a visit to Quilts in the Barn. I am not envious - much! Sue-Anne if you see Rosemary she has a hug for you.
This is my effort so far with the first quilt from Carolyn Forsters book. It was a quick and easy one to construct and the beauty will be the quick and simple utility quilting - I hope. Wendy has a much better photo on her blog and if you pop over there you will have a little sneak preview of the dancing dollies.
Lastly, I apologise for not having a better photo of this wonderful quilt. My friend Jill is making this or rather finishing it as a labour of love. It belonged to her sister in law who sadly lost her short battle with a rare cancer last year. This partly made hexagon quilt was discovered in a cupboard and Jill set about finishing it. Trisha didn't believe that she was a good stitcher but I can tell you she was and her daughter's will have a fabulous gift when it is done. Jill tells me that there are enough hexagons and fabrics to make another quilt so both girls will have one. It has also been a trip down memory lane as they have looked at the fabrics from old dresses and blouses.
