On Sunday, my family and I headed up into the hills to visit some gardens. It was cold but the fresh air and serene beauty filled us all with renewed vigour!
I don't think I need to write any more words here! I'll let the photos do the talking!
Puff is finished!
I completed my Puff the Magic Dragon quilt too! :-) He embarked on his plane journey to England yesterday... It would have been cheaper for him to fly himself... but he said that his wings were too new to be broken-in on such a long trip. What can I say? I'm a big softie!
I really love the fabric used for the back of the quilt. I had earmarked it for a fairy house, but it just 'went' with this project so well. Sewing on the binding was pure bliss, just looking at the colours and how they play with eachother put a big contented smile on my face. I know... I should get out more often eh?!! :-)
I quilted the curly smoke being breathed from Puff's mouth. And because Puff 'lived by the sea', I quilted waves by his feet. The 'Autum mist' was insinuated in the white clouds above his head. However, I don't think the quality of the quilting portrays these ideas. But that doesn't matter!
I hope you are all having a good week?
Until next time - happy creating! :-)
