Stitching, Naughty Girl 17

Hi everyone,

I've been busy working on a baby quilt, but in between, I have been experimenting with applique. This is a new to me pattern and I've also tried some different stitches.

These are so not my colours, but I have a dear friend who loves them. These will be part of a housewarming gift for her and her new home. 

These are the colours throughout the cottage, so these are for me! All fabrics from my scrap drawer.

The baby quilt for my customer "J" is coming along well.

Here is the flimsy I finished yesterday.  The layers are ready now so pinning is the next step.

Girl 17 has settled in and made herself right at home.  It seems she saw Boy 14 and the quilt stitchery that I showed in my previous post though.......

While I was piecing the baby quilt top yesterday, I noticed she was very I went to look for her and found her in MY bed!!! Not only that, I went back to the other end of the house to get the camera and she was STILL  there as you can see by this picture.  Cheeky girl!  The special dogs are not allowed on the furniture, so it is very unusual to have two in such a short time that are doing this.  Now I have to remember to close the door and to put stuff on the sofa at night too as I found her there a few hours after she was in my bed.  Other than that, she is lovely :) xx debbie
