playing......


Fairy Girl has been playing today............
below is a Christmas present she got.......the simple softies book and the felts in the box......I got the darker felts above before Christmas and had hidden them so she didn't find them but pulled them out today too........
She headed off in another direction and got this idea from another book and made it with the felts instead for her kindy buddy at school.............the pink is actually the one in the box above but the colours are off below..........
I was playing with something that has been hanging on a coat hanger for too many years...............
stalled by the fact my border didn't fit it got put aside............solved the problem for the top/bottom borders to fit but the side ones don't so thinking I will put 2 more rows of checkers in to lengthen it and then I need a border.............need to go back and look what the range was.............not that I would find any of that now.........it's quite a few years old............it started off as a disappearing 9 patch.......think I had a jelly roll and 2 charm packs? Really need to back thru my blog books and find it.............who knows too if I have any more fabrics for it put away in a "safe" spot.........
Had a great easter weekend.........fairly quiet with one family of 4 here.........very easy.........
I need to take one more pic and I will show you what I did......which in-turn inspired me to get back into this quilt top..........
Catch you later..............

PS got the better of me and I searched my blog in the top left corner and the 2 posts I have done popped up....here and here........woops 5 years ago.........now I can look up my list of yardage as I think I may have something.............
The fabrics are Wild Rose  -Bannock and Patek for Moda

  14. Cute butterfly and great range of felt colours. The quilt looks good - hopefully you will find a bit of fabric tucked away so you can finish that border off.

  17. Wow Chooky,
    I can't believe you were able to find the yardage by checking your 'yardage register' That is very organised and as for using your blog to check for it, that is great. Mine doesn't go back that far, but has been helpful for for the projects I have completed in 'blog time'.
