Isn't she sweet with her pink egg , thanks so much Selina , I love it !!
Our grandsons girlfriend spent some time in Bali so I asked her to pick up some batiks for me , she came for a visit on Friday with a bag filled with the most gorgeous batiks I have ever seen .
The one at the back is actually a dress she had bought which had gotten torn in an area that it would be impossible to repair so she gave that to me as well . Thanks so much Chelsey I am sure I can make something very pretty with these !! Chelsey even took a class to make batiks , now that sounds like fun but she said it was a lot harder than it looked .
On the weekend I finally was able to get down to visit with my Mom , with the dreadful weather we have had these past few months plus some joint issues it was impossible for me to drive that far and not exactly safe either . I travelled with my brother and his wife which was nice as we had a chance to catch up . I was able to deliver my little landscapes that I had made for my brother , my sisters and my Mom . If you remember I made them with my Dad's ties , they loved them which makes me extra happy ! If you hadn't seen them previously you can check them out here . My Mom gave me five more ties so lets see what I can create with those , since I didn't get a landscape for myself I may just make one ;-)
Not a lot of sewing going on at the moment but I did finish this little wool ornament , a free pattern on a wool applique FB group , they are fun and quick to make and my collection is sure growing now .
That bright green was once a boiled wool jacket , I picked it up at a thrift store for this purpose , it is wonderful to work with .
That is it from me today , hope everyone is enjoying there day and thanks so much for stopping by .
