What's on my lap.

Today Annie and I ventured out for the morning. We headed down to Centre Rd Bentleigh to post some things, do some food shopping, drink coffee, and of course, visit Amitie fabric store! Annie remained very well behaved for the whole trip, which was quiet a feat, given that she didnt sleep a wink. We rifled through fabrics trying to get some really nice matches for the stash I bought the other day (see below). Will share those with you tomorrow when I take some photos.

Right now on my lap is this little project:

After a quick lesson from my good friend, I decided to decorate part of the surprise project for my sister with a little quilting stitches. It's shaping up to be very special indeed. The needles used are Jeana Kimball's Foxglove Cottage Embroidery/Redwork Size 9. The girls at Amitie insisted they were the best, with a little bend in them for ease of sewing. I also bought some perle 8 in a cream colour. Bugger to thread, but delightful none-the-less.

Hi Em, it was a pleasure to hold such a beautiful baby, I can't wait to see the finished result - the sticthing looks great. Aren't the needles great, I had to have a go lastnight once mine were tucked in. Talk to you soon.

Love the colour combo!

Those needles sound intriguing (should such a thing be said about needles?)
