I purchased the 100 blocks magazines when I saw Issue 2
had to buy Issue 3 after my friend Wendy
encouraged me to get it... he he,
she made a gorgeous block twice into a mini quilt..see Here
I fell in love with this block from Issue 3
by Lynette Anderson.
called 'How Tweet It Is'.... block No 227 Issue 3
I made this block into a cushion for a dear friend Judy..
she is my number one fan,
she encourages me when I am down,
gets my design brain working clearly at times...
and even tests all my patterns/projects that I need proof read.
Love you Jude!
Is that enough reasons for a gift... he he...
Well the story goes like this.
I was making a mug mat for the said Judy and another
friend Heather last year when we had a discussion at sewing
about Mug-Rugs...LOL... they both said "ooh yak.. what for, why use them"..
I was in the process of making them a mug-rug
for their birthdays the next month....
so out the window went that idea of making them one
(now they do like them by the way)...
OK maybe this year girls...LOL
After agonising about other handmade gifts,
and listening to some hints and loves I made
Heather a heat pack (see here) and Judy the cushion...
and I rang Judy yesterday and said "I think I better
bring over the late birthday pressie I made you
or I'll keep it as its so nice and I love it,
it matches the quilt on my chair, and and, its just nice...
so off I went for a cuppa, a chat
and to give a present a wee bit late.. he he
I think I better make another one for me,
but first I shall finish some
other gifts that are way late too..
Sweet (better late than never) Hugs
