Raggedy Friends Flimsy and an Invitation to you….

 

Well, here it is….the top is done! Whew!!!  I really loved this when I saw it on Kaaren’s blog as a BOM and I’m so pleased I kept up with it…I love it!   It’s a little bit different to Kaaren’s as I misread some of the patterns and had to make some ‘adaptations’!!!!   All made from scraps from my scrap basket….except for the border……Wendy supplied that!!!!!  Most of the stitcheries were done whilst I was in hospital or recovering, but some were done beforehand, when I needed a break from the ‘everyday’.

A bit hard to see but it gives you a bit of an idea of what it will look like when it is truly finished!!!!   It’s off at the quilter’s now ready for its ‘dressing up’ !!!  So hopefully by the end of next week I’ll be able to show you my finished Raggedy Friends!!!

If you haven’t done so, drop on over to Kaaren’s blog, look at her beautiful house, garden and quilty bits and bobs and send her some well-wishes after her recent visit to hospital!  She’s an angel, and a very generous soul….she could do with some love from her bloggy friends!

I didn’t think my ‘Raggedy Friends’ was going to be ready for our Burdekin Biennial Quilt Show which will be held in Ayr from 28th-31st July in the Music Loft of our Theatre.

If anyone is travelling up this way, we’d love to see you and share a cuppa and a plate….don’t even have to bring your own….and it will have some yummies on it…..can guarantee it because our quilty ladies are also ve-ry good cooks!!!!! mmmmmm  burp!!!

And there will be a smorgasbord of quilts to drool over too!!!!!

Hope your week is full of finishes!!! 

Sugary hugs
