Last Gift Wrapped!!


All my Xmas sewing has been finished, with this little quilt for my mum being the last one completed. Two years ago my parents decided to take their first "real" holiday and they left our little island and went to Melbourne. Since then they have been to Sydney and Adelaide (and they have two more trips planned for next year!!!)

Mum has this gorgeous wooden blanket box which she keeps all her holiday memorablia in, so this little quilt is to sit on top of the box. Now the stitchery is quite plain but i have added buttons to the 3 places they have already visited and each time they go somewhere new, ill add another button (hopefully their little map will be covered in buttons before long!!)

I got to do some more free motion quilting with this one (well actually every gift i made this year i either stippled or meandered). I feel much more relaxed now, quilting this way...thnx to the "Princess" for making it so easy!!

I want to wish everyone a very safe and enjoyable Xmas and I hope you have a wonderful time with your families!!!!
