Look what arrived at my house .........


Look what arrived at my house last week from the lovely Shell over at Raspberry Rabbits.  This gorgeous quilt which I won in her give away.  Hubby finally hung it for me last night and it looks great in my sitting room.  Thanks so much Shell it is truly beautiful and I will cherish it forever.


I have had my dressing table that I have been re-purposing finished for a few weeks now but keep forgetting to show you.  So here it is .......


And this is the lovely mirror that the children gave my for christmas.  I love it.


And the little birdy that Amy gave me looks really at home amongst my perfumes.


The last few weeks have not only been busy at work but also in the design studio.  All of these items have been finished and sent off to Australian Country Threads where they will be featured in upcoming issues as well as a profile of moi.  How exciting !!

This is a little applique and stitchery sampler called Blessings.  I just love the sentiment "Blessings Come In Many Ways - The Nicest Come As Friends" very true don't you think? 



And another new table runner which used up the very last of my Patisserie stash.  This one is called "Dreaming of Daisies"


And finally a applique and stitchery Cushion from the gorgeous park Avenue range called "Floral Fantasy".

In the coming weeks I will be working on some of my UFO's and have just finished 2 blocks from Jenny's "Christmas Story" and Natalie Bird's "Tis the Season" these are both Christmas Quilts which I want finished well and truly before christmas (Fingers crossed).

I also have to start to pack my bags for my trip to Queensland with the Gumnut Girls - I just know we are going to have a ball.  Don't forget about the morning tea in the park for any of you QLD girls that are able to come - It is going to be wonderful.

Hugs - Fee XX

Your beautiful newly painted furniture totally inspires me. I have been scouring the thrift stores for the last few months looking for that 'perfect' piece that will be my first project. White furniture has always, always been my favorite look. Wish me luck!

Your wall hanging from Shell is beautiful. I like your new designs. It would be hard to chose just one. I always enjoy looking at what other people are doing. I found your blog through our friend Shell. Have a great day. A Missouri Friend.
