Ladybird Ladybird fly away home

Dia Duit, I have had this ladybird fabric in my stash from the days when we lived in Williamstown, some fifteen years gone. At the time, I cannot remember who I made the baby quilt for. One day, I found our Jess, fossicking in my fabrics. My response,was what are you up to? Hmmm Mum I am trying to find your ladybird fabric. Why? I want to have a tattoo of it on my back. You surely know what my response was to that.A few weeks back when I was spring cleaning my stash, I came across it. The quilt is for our Jessie's hope chest. I found a dragonfly pattern, which was apt. Not the best dragonflies in the world, heh but I am happy with the result. Slan, O'faigh.

Tula Pink Elizabethan range

Dia Duit, it was hard to choose which fabrics to choose from Tula's ranges. I was particularly taken with the Elizabethan range.With Tula's fabric's there is a story behind each one.I found it hard with my choice as the fabrics are so different to what I use.Naturally, as I was leaving I noticed Tula autographing the fabric for a lassie. Hmmm so did I. There is a new range coming out with the tortoise and the hare, a must must have.Another direction, in the way of thinking of fabric and quilting. Inspiration drawn from Tula.
