I hope everyone who celebrates Easter has had a lovely one. Here at Hettie Towers it has been a very nice looong weekend. It was Mr Hettie's 50th Birthday last week so we both extended the weekend a little in order to coincide with some time together for his Birthday. I will share photos shortly.
We also did not have anything planned, other than a very nice Dinner with friends on Saturday night and so I have been able to just "potter" between garden, Chickens, house (including the dreaded "H" word) and also my Craft Room.
Now I come to today's sharing with you. Last weekend I was in Portsmouth on a Quilting/Girlie weekend, it being the AGM of QGBI and there were a few demonstrations of techniques, one of which interested me greatly. I wanted to give this a go and found an abandoned quilt block and tried it out with success.
However, I know I really need to master mitering corners of quilts, so I had a rummage for some fabric and another abandoned block and came across a piece of fabric. As I ironed it I realised it was the perfect size for my little pillow which I use and which helps stop my neck trouble, and which only has one cover! Hey presto, the original use was abandoned and a new cover was born.
I just love those serendipity moments don't you?
The fabric is VOS and was used to back a quilt I made which went to an orphanage in one of the former Yugoslav countries in the early 1990s (told you it was old). As it is possibly classed as a Snippet (well it was left over) I am taking it down to the Snippets Playground in order that anyone who is feeling tired after all the sunshine and frolics today may use it! The lace was also a piece of VOS which was just about the right size.
Thanks for calling by. Now that most of the tooing and froing has been carried out for this month, I should hopefully be able to catch up and call by real soon!
