YAY, IT IS FINISHED...........

Finally I have finished this quilt.  It is made
using the same method as my Friday Night Quilt
pattern, except for this one I have used wider
strips of fabric and the are all from the Shangri-La
range by Moda.  The fabric was given to me by my
friend Suzanne Bath, who used to own the patchwork
shop in Colac called Delightfully Sew.  The fabric are samples
which were given to her by a rep.  There was enough
fabric to make two quilt tops.  My daughter has made
one in the browns, blues and greens from the range. 
I stole all the red fabric!

I quilted my quilt using a lovely red pearle thread.

A WEEKEND AWAY....................

Last weekend the kids and I went to Newcastle for
my beautiful nieces wedding.  This is the bride (Nerissa)
with her husband just behind her to the left.
They are with the lovely bridesmaids (one of which
is the brides twin sister -- Merinda to the far right)
and the best man and groomsmen.

I made this horseshoe for her.  The lace is some
that belonged to my Mum.

I had a fiddle with some wedding cards, and these
are the ones I came up with.
I then had to decide which one to give them.

I decided to give them this one, as I had also used
some of Mum's lace on it.

It was hard to decide exactly which card to give them
as I was really happy with how they all came out.

This dress one is cute too.

This one is a little plainer, but sill lovely, I think.

And the lucky last.  Another cute one I think!
