Fun in my fabric world....

I have a friend....

...her name is Chookyblue...when I am sluggish with my stitching she does not allow me to wallow...she tells me to get a wriggle on  & GET STITCHING! So, to show I am listening, here are some sweet little baskets from Blackbird Designs...but in the 30's prints I received from the Nundle girls for my birthday.I think they look pretty cute! Thanks for the inspiration! To everyone who has sent me heartfelt words of support & inspiration- you are all amazing & I do appreciate it.
 For my recent birthday I received a whole PILE of lovely fat 1/4's from the bloggers I met last year at Nundle GDITC. They are all lovely & I am itching to get into them. Thankyou so much Donna, Maree, Fiona, Bec, Anita, Jo, Peg, Dale, Kerry, June, Helen, Alison, Gai, Karri, Shelley, Lynda & Jenny- I will post pics as they are made into projects!
 Last Thursday was one of those milestone days...DD graduated from her degree & is poised to start PT work in a week & then start her Honours uni work. It was a special day & it was lovely that my mother was there to share the day too!

Lovely photo of you and your DD. How nice that your Mum was able to share such a special day with your family. Love those blocks, Chookyblue is a pretty special person, always encouraging us when we need it!

I think we need to change her name to "Nudge" like the advert on TV. Everyone needs a little "Nudge". They look great.
Love the photo of you and your daughter. Just lovely. Congrats to her and how special to have 3 generations there....

Wonderful blocks. I've come by way of Chookyblue. I've seen these blocks before and was trying to find the pattern, they are really cute. Which Blackbird Designs book do they come out of (if you don't mind me asking).

Deb said...

I love your 30's version of the baskets. They certainly are cheerful fabrics - I hope it helps to give you some inspiration back. Gorgeous mum and daughter shot. Congrats to your girl.
