This 'pink fairy' is the super cute recipient of the quilt. She is my 'step granddaughter to be'!!! which is such a mouthful so herinafter will be referred to as my granddaughter (as that is how we think of her already). It is to go on her bed which is pink. I gave it to her this weekend after we went to watch her in her first ballet show.......adorable. Not having daughters ourselves, this was something we missed out on. It was a real joy to watch. We were not the only ones to think so judging by the collective 'aaaaah' when a troop of 4 year old little girls, and one brave little boy, came on stage.
I quilted it with a pattern called 'apple a day' and I used a red Moda spot to bind it.
This weekend was a holiday weekend and most people would be taking things easy and relaxing in the garden....I was making and icing 150 cupcakes for the wedding of a good friends daughter! Actually, it was an honour to do that for her and the wedding itself was lovely. It is always a joy to see two people in love preparing to spend the rest of their lives together.
I even managed to dance the night away despite my poorly ankle - although I must admit is it a little sore today but life is for living and I certainly wasn't going to sit on the sidelines like a wallflower!!
Back to work today.
