A GIFT---


Do you remember about a month or so ago -- a fellow blogger and new friend, Alice, sent me a package--it had the cute Valentine lollipops in it????
I am not sure if you also noticed in the "pile" of goodies was this--
It is a spool of variegated thread --
And do you see what color it is?????    PINK--yes my favorite!!!
So I have had my "eyes" open waiting for just the right project to come along to use it on and low and behold--I did find it---
this month's first friday freebie---it shouted--"do me in that delightful pink thread"---so I never "argue" with a spool of thread--so I did---and I just "love" it--then I was trying to decide how to finish it off--do I make a wall hanging or what with it---Then yesterday when my friend Anne came she brought me 3 quilt magazines she had picked up to look at--in one was a picture of a set of pillows using "chenille"--AHHH--
I remembered I had a nice leftover piece of "pink"---yep--
PINK chenille bedspread--that I had used for years and then the corners gave out--so I have used it in some craft projects---and I actually knew right where it was--SOOO--
this is my "newest" pillow---all done up in it's Easter Dress!!!!  I was even able to use some of the pretty edging on this one--
I did line the chenille with a solid pink cotton fabric for strength and so you would not see the stripes on the pillow!!!
AND look who has "adopted" the pillow---
Mary and Larry the Lambs---so it's beginning to look a little bit like "Easter" around here!!

What else did I do today---Well--I did go to Mary's but did not stay as she was not feeling well at all---( I am worried!!)
So came home and made the pillow--then I worked on my Roundabout quilt top for Schnibbles for this month--AND--I actually used the Rowena travel iron that I bought back in August---I can be rather slow sometimes!!!!!   there is alot of prep work first--but once that part is done the blocks go together rather fast--got 6 blocks done--but then came out and hand quilted on the Spring quilt!!!  So that was my day--now "what" didyou do with yours??????

And today's "bunny" clip is---
I want to know "who" baked cookies today and didn't tell me????

Hugs, Di

  8. Sorry, no cookies were baked here today. I did think about it, but that was as far as I got lol.

    Love the pillow! I had a chenille bedspread growing up and loved the fringe. Mine was a boring white though.

    There sure was a bit of prep work for this month's Schnibble. I actually finished my top from start to finish yesterday. I would stop and think I was done for the day and then I would tell myself OK just one more thing. The next thing I knew, it was finished.
