As the weekend is now here, I will continue on my assembly
of Ms Diva. But before I tell you about her-
DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE TWINS?
(the original creator of Quilt Diva)
Amy Bradley's- Daughter Ashley,
who also works very close with her Mom,
gave birth to 2 healthy babies ( TWINS)
a week ago. Nate and Norah ( you can see them here) were born into
a lovely creative and amazing family. I can't imagine the quilts Amy will be designing
for her new grandchildren. They are simply a treasure. ( the twins that is)
Be sure to send over some warm wishes, they
would be soooo pleased to hear from you....
And speaking of birth....I suppose you could
say Ms Diva is being born fully dressed...
She has her hands now, complete with bracelets..
I took off her eyelashes so she could not see the progress,
but they are waiting for her in the GARBAGE somewhere...
YEP, in my haste to work on other projects this week,
I placed them on the counter on a piece of plastic,
did such a fine job in cleaning, they are seeing garbage somewhere..
I will pick up another pair today....lol
I had my man cut up an old ruler so I could add a real
ruler to her attire, and there is still a lot of work to go into her
"WE" decided with more negotiations that we would
make her into an old fashion like photo, complete with black corners..
I still have to cut some white strips for another border, so that it does
look like an old fashion photo...( her wishes of course)
I have received quite a few requests, so here she is...
I am really liking her, ok, maybe not HER, she is rather
demanding, but the way she looks...lol
This week, with the April Showers blog hop ,
homework, and a new project design for a future
blog hop. It will be announced next week...
I am surprised I got this project below completed....
IT is only a sneak peak, so you could guess I suppose
but I am not sure many of you will get it...
Ok, love to chat more, but really, I have
some chores to do first and then it is a sewing weekend...
I haven't even begun my mug rugs .....ooops did I just say that?
So tell me are you sewing too?
OHHHHHH again almost forgot
I still have 2 patterns of Quilt Diva
to giveaway...Anyone want to make a
This is the one Amy CREATED
she is in a pin now too...
Ahhhhhhh I may have to pin her PIN on MY DIVA!
really isn't she just a darling?
Amy I am speaking about lol
P.s APOLOGIES for not getting back to you all
I have been realllllly busy trying to get her done...
Thought I would answer a few questions....
*Ok, purchased another pair of eyelashes...YES!
*Her Ruler is a real one, cut it on an angle at 8 inches
had my David drill some holes into each corner...I will sew
her right on the quilt...
*She needs a lot of embellishments....Yesterday
I spent the day blanket stitching all of her pieces....
Today, I will be doing some embroidery,
adding a cup...have to design one first....something she could
hang from her hand....lol
I am going to highlight her hair, add some piping to her socks...
If she did not want to argue with me soooo much
I possibly would have her done ....nahhhhhhh lol
Winners will be announced tomorrow!
Ohhhhh I drew up some ideas for mug rugs last
evening....so I will be working on those this week,
Ok, it is Sunday...I need to rest awhile!
April Showers Mug Rug hop continues tomorrow!
TOLD YOU SHE WAS DEMANDING....
I don't have any time to waste now...
Which eyes DO YOU LIKE MOST.?
1st ones will be as is...
2nd one I will add colour blue threads
to the button with pearls as the stars in her eyes...
Of course I have my fav...but it is not HERS...
So I thought I would ask you ...
note her blush on her cheeks and her mole....
I have her all blanket stitched now...tonight I add all the embellishments
and some embroidery..
That is if you solve
our problem...or issue..
OHHHH yes sorry about that
CONGRATS goes to JOYCE and DIANE
who both won a copy of a QuiLt Diva that they can make for themselves...
thanks to Amy Bradley for being soooo generous...
