soft pretty flannels.........

Much prettier then in this photo........
about 60x70in...........this shaggy quilt is for Little Chicken.......she probably thinks I will never get it done.........
surprise Little Chicken...........it actually got delivered to her today............
i'm just waiting to see what she has to say...........
this is more like the colours................all ready to be snipped...........
the range is "Cute as a Button" by RJ Fabrics.........
Remember I got these scissors (Birch) "Heirloom Rag Scissors" from Cottage on the Hill
It was Mr Chooky's present from GIDTC.........he snipped the whole quilt in no time and no complaints of tennis elbow once he was done................so much easier then normal scissors.............

It's been a long weekend here and after a glorious warm June long weekend (usually wet and freezing) today we have had more rain..........another 13mls which is wonderul and more is forecast this week.........yippee the grass can grow for the sheep and cows.......busy couple of days coming up....... 
Catch you later..............

  16. That is so lovely. It reminded me that I have the flannels here for Vicki's - must get it out and made. Will Mr Chooky snip it with his fancy rag scissors as well? Maybe not, I had better do it.
