positive feedback from the harshest critic!

hi all!
good news! mum loved her pin cushion!

as i mentioned the other day, she can be a harsh critic of crafting pursuits!  but she was impressed that i had met her need of not stabbing herself with pins in the leg by putting some card in the bottom :)

i also got to work on my blocks for this months Christmas Block swap. my partner Robyn requested christmas trees in either applique or patchwork.  i wasnt sure the look she was going for, so i made two.  here are sneak peeks....

this is some more work on my pay it forward project....can't give away too much :)

here is my next big project i need to get a move on with - this is my mother-in-laws 60th birthday quilt.  it has pictures from all the grandkids on it.  here are the first bits of it

her birthday isn't until novemeber, but i know that that time will fly!  will show you more as it grows :)

pugs and kisses
