Arrivals and a Birth



Helen, Jo and I had a lovely chatting and stitching session yesterday.  We didn't get a lot of stitching done but we did make time for Scones, Jam & Cream.  Time spent with stitching friends is wonderful and great for the creative mojo.



Just before they arrived a delivery van pulled up and delivered me a huge box of loveliness for a new quilt design.



7 Bolts of Romantic Florals - Be Still My Beating Heart !!!!  I am still working on the design for this one but hope to have it ready for AQC in April.




Recently 2 new characters were born in the studio - A gorgeous 2 toned kitty cat and a sweet little love bird. 

Just about all of my designs feature flowers of some sort and this little duo are sitting amongst a bed of assorted blooms.  These 2 are featured in a new design but I feel a bit mean not naming them so I am open to suggestions. 

I have a skinny quarter bundle of the 7 fabrics above for the best kitty cat name and another for the best love bird name so get your thinking caps on.  I will christen them with their names over the weekend so you have until then to think up something lovely.

Hugs - Fee XXX

With your new fabric being a romantic floral what about RomTom for the cat. Or Mr. RomTom.
It sounds like one of T.S.Eliot´s cat names :)
