Guess who came to Hobbysew on Wednesday morning for a little visit? We minded her for a short time while Mum and Dad went and did a few messages. We were all a little disappointed that Alice didn't wake up for a cuddle!

It is hard to get back to normal after all the excitement of Alice's arrival. She came home to her house on Tuesday and they came to visit us on the way and I was at work! Here is the little lady in her capsule.
So back to some stitching. I am thrilled to be able to share my In my Garden top. I procrastinated so much about adding the borders and am thrilled that I have finally stitched them on. Ta da! Here it is.

It is so exciting to share our special news with all of you today. On Thursday, 12th June at 4.39pm, little Alice Heidi was born. She was 3.1kgs and 49cm long and is just so perfect and beautiful. Mummy and Daddy are thrilled to bits as are we, the doting grandparents. What a thrill to have another little person in our family.
Yesterday afternoon we minded the little men so their parents could visit little Alice. They just seemed so grown up and were lots of fun.

As always, Wednesdays at the shop end up being inspirational as the ladies bring in their works in progress or their finishes. Karen wowed us all this amazing quilt with curves! She has done such a lovely job and the fabrics chosen look amazing. It was professionally quilted but Robyn Cawdron and the quilting is wonderful.

I have been working slowly on quite a few projects. There is progress but it seems very slow. Wish I could just concentrate on one thing but I do enjoy doing a variety of different stitching and hand work. There has been a bit of secret stitching going on this month for Stitching in the Hills in August. It is being held on the 1st to 3rd August and is always a wonderful time of stitching and fellowship. There are still some places if you are interested. Email me for the details. Here is just a little glimpse of one of the stitcheries.
We are using a gorgeous range of fabric called Mirabelle and it has been fun working with these lovely fabrics. Other than that I have been working on a few ongoing projects. My scarf is coming along nicely and I am about half way now!

Finally....after some slow piecing, the vignette quilt top is finished. It has been three years in the making so it feels very good to get it to this stage.
Last week, Anita had been busy and had made these two lovely baby quilts using some great panels.
