|close-up of Daisy|
Today has been quite productive I used Jalie 2805 to make my DGD Alana a little turtle/polo neck top. I found a great website for free and reasonably priced embroidery designs here. This lovely Daisy duck is one of Alana's favorite characters from the TV shows so of course I had to make it for her. It actually took longer to embroider Daisy than it did to make the top.
I have also started some squares to convert into a quilt for my friend Anne's daughter who is expecting her baby in a couple of weeks. Anne said she wanted Winnie the Pooh theme for the baby's room. I found some nice Tigger fabric which I will use for the background and then use the squares like I did with Alana's quilt.
This is what I did today while I was working on another project - they look really sweet and they too were free fromt he same web site.
Last but not least, please don't yawn, but I used up some more of the blue, and blue and white stripe to make another version of McCalls 6435 - this time I used the stripe for the top and inserted a metal zip between the seam to make it a little different. I will take one of these tops to London with me to keep there. This is the problem living between two houses, so this way I have one at each.
