This & that..................................

First up a finish from The Country Yard 'Sewing Essentials Project' club. This month a pouch for my rotary cutter & a thimble/ thread/ earing keeper thingie.

Next a cushion I made for a friend who is going through a rather tough time at the moment. You will notice from the photo's how different light can change the look of the fabrics.

Trapunto on the front & an all over loopy/paisley for the back.

It is winter here in New Zealand, so it is hard to believe this next photo. They have a divine scent!

This weekend I celebrated my birthday, I got a very special gift, my youngest granddaughter to visit. Here she is helping do the dishes.


  1. Lovely projects, your sunshine and roses look wonderful! And such a cute visitor.

  2. Hope the rest of your weekend and birthday went well after I saw you and your cute visitor briefly the other day :-) The cushion is beautiful Leeanne!

  3. That pillow is beautiful! Gorgeous quilting!
    What a sweet little helper. : )

  4. Happy belated birthday!!! And what a gift a darling wee poppet to stay. She is too cute cluck cluck cluck...
    And roses still in your garden Really? Awesome

  5. Ohhh Leeanne - she is sooo cute - helping with the dishes, look at the concentration :-)
    Your creations are gorgeous, as always, love the quilting on the cushion. You are a much warmer climate up there if you still have those lovely roses blooming.

  6. What a little cutie your grand-daughter is Leeanne and a special birthday for you I bet. Love the cushion.

  7. Oh, what a cute wee gift! And a gift that does the dishes? Even better. Must make myself one of those rotary cutter pouches one day.

  8. Hope you had a fantastic birthday Leeanne, what a sweet little granddaughter you have, so helpful too :-)
    The cushion you made is beautiful looks so intricate the way you've quilted it, gorgeous.

  9. How sweet your granddaughter is. God love their little hearts!
